Cask @ Wellington Arms, Bedford. Dark brown. Aroma of dry leather, mocha, wood. Taste sweet but dry, a near-perfect balance. Lovely on the palette. MissPxx (991) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 14, 2014
Mild and fruity smelling, with a dark deep golden amber colour. Leaves a fruity taste with a lingering bitterness. Very pleasant. I think I'll have another.

Cask at the Plough & Harrow (JDW), Hammersmith. Deep red-brown with a fine lacy beige head, roast malt and fruit cake on the nose, more roast malt plus peppery hops, a little toffee and some fruit - pears? - in a warming and chewy body, then a roast-bitter aftertaste. Could make an excellent winter warmer.
