3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thin, coarse-laced off-white head on dark red body. Faint sourish aroma of nuts and faint sweet roastiness. Taste is smooth, clean, nutty maltiness; quite bitter. Aftertaste is drily nutty, with hoppy bitterness lingering. Clearly a well-made beer, but rather subdued. (Cask at the Britannia.)

UPDATED: APR 7, 2005 Cask@The Shaftesbury, Richmond, London. This was very malty and sweet and not much else. Not really wintery or warming either, just a sticky syruppy flavour, lots of toffee/caramel, some brown sugar, to sweet and not entirely interesting.
