clear brown with a red hue, smooth light brown head.
malty, dry caramelly, mild hoppy bitter aroma. Quite fullbodied aroma.
flavor is dry hoppy, faint flowery, lots of malts, faint sweet caramel, ends deliciously bitter english style, things balance perfectly in this one. Palate sometimes gets a little watery. some of the bitter flavors almost resembles roasted grains. nice one.

Bottle... Crystal clear amber ale with a small, frothy, white head. Faint, malty nose and flavor with light notes of toffee and caramel. Sufficiently bittered for "near" balance. Medium-bodied and soothingly creamy with mediocre carbonation. Lightly bitter, grassy finish.

The aroma is roasted and nutty with a touch of licourice. Looks pretty good too - a very dark ruby coloured beer. Tastes of winter fruits and licourice with roast character. Quite juicy and mouthfilling on the palate. Good long finish too. Good beer.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle picked up at SH Jones Bicester. This was more like it, after having the Wye Valley Butty Bach I then had this one next and had picked it up without even looking at the strength in the shop. This was a corker, poured a deep copper colour with a sweet malty aroma and not much of a head. But it was the Taste Department that this really excelled in, a really full flavoured beer that tasted of toffee, malt, and some slight burned flavours excellent when compared to its stablemate and very good in it’s own right.
