het heeft de kleur van Engelse thee en de smaak van lichte karamel, toffee, droog en nootachtig. gekocht om het etiket, maar de inhoud viel ook mee. minutemat (8216) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 29, 2016
16 year old 330ml bottle @ MTG II tasting, courtesy of Mike Landlocked. Many thanks for this dusty relic. Pours amber, thin white head. Aroma is oxidised malts, caramel, cobwebs. Had a good innings this bottle, but it’s reached its time tonight. SarkyNorthener (5202) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 29, 2016
Bottle shared at Rich’s welfare pad thanks to Landlocked Mike, cheers Mike. Golden amber beer with small head. Aroma of caramel and mixed veg. Taste is oxidised, kvass, caramel and malts. Past its best, not great. RichTheVillan (9957) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2016
Bottle from Brewhouse Mike; clear golden yellow pour with a bubbly white head, aroma is seriously oxidation, taste has lemon, sweet malts, quite oxidised. ChainGangGuy (5141) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - MAR 9, 2011
16 ounce pint - $6.50 at Taco Mac in Canton, Georgia.
Appearance: Delivered to the table a clear, golden-amber body with just under an inch of white head.
Smell: Wishy-washy aroma of weak malted barley with a thin whiff of their house yeast strain. The hops didn’t bother to show up in the aroma, and I can’t say I blame them.
Taste: Faintly bready malts with a very, very small amount of toffee crisp sweetness. 1-2 drops of apricot juice. Dissatisfyingly watery from the onset. Iota of yeast. Leafy green hop character, albeit minuscule, with very little bitterness. Drying, water-soaked finish.
Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Medium-low carbonation.

A 1997 bottle at 6.5% abv. Cloudy brown beer. Sweet malty caramel with a lingering sweet aftertaste. Hardly a trace of hop. Has survived well and was quite drinkable.
Bottled, 500ml, pasteurised. Had this for quite a while. Gold amber with white head. Full, slightly sweet and cardboardy beer, but with a background spiciness and grainy flavour. The hops have melded into the malt body over time. It’s ok. Dolty (15) - SWEDEN - AUG 28, 2006
There seems to have been an older and newer formulation, I reckon, so my rating is an average of the two. As has been noted elsewhere here, the newer version is a wee bit hoppier, and I fancied more the older, slightly sweeter variant. Still, a nice lighter ale, well drinkable under any conditions.

Aroma is typical wychwood with their sort of burnt soggy cardboard hoppines, but not as bad as usual since a sweetness helps it out. Taste is mainly malty with a nice honey sort of sweetness finish is a nicer type of wychwood hopps which is reasonably wet. Alround a not bad beer not sure if i could session it though. leaparsons (11846) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 6, 2002
Please note - I cannot compare this to real Dogs Bollocks, understood. Anyhoo, This is an average ale that is quite strong and fruity with a dry mouthfeel. Pretty dull, though.
