fonefan (57854) - VestJylland, DENMARK - MAR 16, 2010
Bottle 500ml.
Clear medium amber orange color with a average, frothy to creamy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white head. Aroma is light moderate malty, toasted - caramel, light hoppy. Flavor is moderate sweet and light light bitter with a average duration. Body is light to medium, texture is watery to oily, carbonation is soft. [20100123]

FreshHawk (596) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAR 15, 2010
Cask. A - Clear golden amber color with a good sized white creamy head that leaves a fair amount of lacing. S - A bit of apple along with some grain and pale malt smell. Good amount of earthy hop smell. T - Pale malt and some grain make up the base. A fair amount of apple and some other golden fruit on top of that. These provide just a bit of tartness. Good amount of earthy and floral hops. General overall bitterness is present, but balanced. M - Medium to light body. Quite smooth and just a touch watery. D - Easy to drink beer. Nice ordinary session type beer. Bitter taste is present but doesn’t overpower or kill the palate. Notes: Very nice and drinkable beer. Nothing special, but a good session beer. Much more taste than the ABV suggests. Also the owner of the pub where I got this was telling me that it was one of the last casks of this beer. They seem to still bottle it though.

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 12, 2009
Bottle. A dark amber with a large pillowy head. Floral notes to the caramal malt nose. A big fruity malt flavour and a drying palate. A good Bitter.

2.7
downender (9969) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2009
Bottle from Corks, Bristol. Amber coloured with no head and slight carbonation. Earthy hop aroma with a touch of caramel. Flavour was Sweet, with some toffee, a hint of diacetyl and then the contrast of some big, chunky hops giving a very bitter finish. A bit disjointed.

DonMagi (5592) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2009
Cask in the market porter. Alround rating: Excellent hop character, noteably bitter, leafy hoppy freshness. great drinkable stuff.

Bottle from Regional wines....an unfortunate victim of the brassica brigade...long journey in a hot container need i say more....drain pour

2.4
Bov (14988) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUL 1, 2008
courtesy of Toni Flükiger - cloudy copper-orange colour with no foam left; the aroma is far more bready than the expected floral touch from the Fuggles; low carbonation and a moderate malt body; a touch of bitterness and a quite long bready finish - a one-dimensional deceptive beer

3.2
DownsouthGav (601) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2008
Bottle. Nose of malt and hops (the fuggles? are quite distinctive) with a creaminess in the aroma. Tatse is malty with some butteriness. Quite enjoyable. I’m surprised at the low rating for this beer.

3.6
johndoughty (6063) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2007
Bottle. Full bodied especially for its 3.8 strength. Some mallts and quite fruity .Proves that you haven’t got to have a high alcohol presence to produce a beer with bounce. Definitely stands out from the pack.

3.3
greig (253) - Hamilton, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 8, 2007
A good Ordinary bitter. Very well balanced, and hard to pick any individual dominating flavours, but far from bland. Not as much of that distinctive Fuggles earthiness as the name suggests.
