3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the Guildford Arms.
Appearance - a lovely red to toffee colour nice head. Beautiful.
Nose - biscuits and spice. Some herby or pine notes too but subtle.
Taste - a more intense version of the nose.
Palate - medium bodied with a crunchy texture and a fairly elegant finish.
Overall - I like this but would classify as an ESB.

UPDATED: MAR 24, 2005 Sampled cask at the Brittania, Euston, with Joeh and Maeib. i liked this on tap, as much as I liked the bottle version. Very smooth, with a strong caramel and toffee backdrop. Seemed to be rather rich, and all the better for that - one of Youngs’ better efforts.
