StueyD (1177) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - OCT 15, 2006
A mid to dark brown coloured beer with orange tints and a thickish off white head. The nose is light, but distinctively malty, with a hint o f fruit in the background. the taste is smooth and malty, coffee and chocolate elements are present, then a bitter, slightly dry hop flavour that balances the finish nicely. Very drinkable! (Cask - The Fox & Hounds, Heacham, Norfolk).

chriso (7396) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2004
Amber colour. Quite drinkable but, overall, a little thin and short of attack. Clean but lacklustre. Drinks easily though. Can't say I picked up any decomposing bodies aroma in mine. Handpump, Lord Moon of the Mall, Whitehall, London NW1.

SilkTork (5231) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 8, 2004 Gravity, Frog & Toad Body Parts Beer Festival. Traditional bitter. Sweet and sickly aroma like a decomposing body with bee's wax poured over the remains of the flesh. Quite light and clean tasting despite the heavy aroma. Uses four malts and two different hops to achieve an average homebrew. [2.1]
JDW Rochester Amber bitter. Neutral to dry palate. Some tannic qualities. Caramel. Slight fruit. A hint of roasty bits. A pleasant, fresh session bitter of acceptable quality. [2.7]
