3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle. Dulled amber-brown color. Thin, frothy head. Sweet, malty aroma, a hint of nuts. Smooth and sweet. Classic English Ringwood yeast tones, toffee, light woodiness. Easy on the palate, goes down quite well for a beer of 6.6%. Soapy, indistinguishable hop character, fishy fining taste. A decent beer, but a little bland.

Aroma of malt with hints of tangy caramel and hops. The taste is very malty with hints of fruit, toffee and caramel, the alcohol is evident. The aftertaste has a distinct bitterness. No! This one I do not like, to boozy!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle. trade with papsoe.
clear brown amber, loarge smooth light brown to beige head.
Aroma is pretty strange (not bad) flowers, honey, syrup, caramel, herbs and spcies that adjust the flowery note with something sort of citrussy or limey. a very full and solid aroma, although not powerfull (english beer after al) .
flavor is nutty bitter, caramel, flowers, honey. a rather bitter flavor, with subltle notes of sweetness, caramel, herbs, flowers. bitterness manages to round it up just shy of being cloying. okay beer.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Tesco...Dark amber, clear, average slightly off-white frothy head, some lacing, diminishing head.....Aroma of caramel malt, bit of fruit, some peppery hop, slight roast malt....Taste of bitter light grass hop, bittering hops, sweet dark caramel malt, wood, warming alcohol...Finish bittersweet initially then a bitter lingering tail with some warming alcohol.
The appearance and aroma is good, the taste not quite so good. Itís better than average, but itís doesnít do a lot for me. I recall the cask version was better.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a mahogany red/orange with a thin off white fizzy head. The aroma is a little off, maybe the bottle is a little old, all i smell is light skunk and tin with some undertones of malt. Wow, you can really taste the full lunar moon in the taste! The crystal malts really shine in the flavour, reminds me of some fullers vintages Iíve had, biscuit, toffee sweetness all the way through, the just a hint of hops to balance things, alcohol sweetness blends with touches of anise in the finish. Itís a solid, drinkable brew, just not something I would go out of my way for.
