Classic British beer. Beautiful deep red colour with frothy off white head. Aroma of toasted summer pudding: doughy, fruity and rich. Flavour is autumnal stewed fruit, with a perfectly balanced hoppiness. Aftertaste is pleasingly sweet but with a deep bitter bite. Not overpowering but complementary. Itís a heavy beer: not alcohol wise but in taste. Kind of like a Christmas pudding. Delicious and warming but you can eat too much :-)

AntonyWilson (98) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - JAN 3, 2016
500ml bottle - Appearance: clear, ruby red with a creamy off-white head that lingers with minimal lacing. Aroma: fruity esters, bready with roasted under tones. Taste: plums, caramel, toasty. Medium to high bitterness that lingers. Good malt backbone that compliments the bitterness. Mouthfeel: medium body, low carbonation. Finished sweet and bitter. Overall: a reasonably good bitter ale. Ruby appearance interesting. Could only finish a single.

light-bodied, sweet, caramel, quite thin, low carbonation.a mere shadow of its cask self, which in turn has diminished in recent years, shame

Reesamania (14) - Bicester, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 2, 2016
The best of a brilliant bunch. Lovely beer bottled or cask. Nice fizz and light head, lovely ruby colouring, and very drinkable. No real difference between cask (4.8%) and bottled (5.2%).

Oaky charred wood flavor. Not overly smooth has a small bite on the tongue but tasty and light enough to have two.
