Pours a deep mahogany with a creamy white head. Aroma of quite sweet malt and tastes of an upfront bitter with lacings of alcohol.

Joakgust (1310) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 6, 2013
Bottle, 50 cl - Orange amber beer with a moderate sized white head. Aroma is malty with notes of caramel, bread, dates, raisins, apricots and alcohol. Flavor is malty with notes of apricots, caramel, dates and earthy hops. A bit unbalanced as the hops take very little space in this beer, however it is very true to style.

floydian1 (1301) - FNQ, Australia, - MAY 22, 2012
500ml brown bottle. An amber brown beer with an ample dense cream white head. Nose is sugary sweet with notes of raisins and plums together with flowery hops and a hint of alcohol. Taste is medium to full bodied fruity malts with a medium English hop finish. Lovely smooth easy drinking palate. Like a turbo charged Hobgoblin.

dwaggs2 (1297) - Jefferson City, Missouri, USA - JAN 27, 2012
Bottle. Poured a copper amber with a tiny white head, that was gone rather quick. Aroma was malts, bisscuits, caramel and yeast. Flavor was caramel malts, with a hint of biscuits. Malty and sweet with a mild hop bitter in the finish. Very mild and not enough for me. Average at best.

500ml bottle served in a pint glass. Pours a clear copper amber color forming a medium to small yellow head with good retention. Strong caramel, resin, dry plums and flowery hops. Taste follows the nose. Very malty with strong notes of caramel, dry plums and grassy hops. Good bitterness. Medium body and carbonation. Great drinkability. Strong British character.

Mjp12 (1264) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2014
Over sweet malt on the nose, and while there are some interesting flavous in the beer, they seem too reserved, hiding in the background. Not terrible, a decent esb .
