Bottle. It pours golden amberish with a medium off white head. Toffee, ripe fruit and caramel malty aroma. Some hoppy notes. The flavor is toasted malty with caramel and light cocoa notes. Bitter hoppy finish. Nice malty brew. redders1974 (1578) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2017

Leeds Beer Festival 2017. Golden-amber, not overly bitter given it was advertised as this, but full and drinkable for its strength. It’s not really sessionable, but worth a try. Skinnyviking (9670) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 23, 2017
50 cl. bottle at home. Medium high fluffy lasting off-white head. Hazy dark orange body. Fruity citrussy aroma and a hint of blackcourrant. Sweet smooth fruity blackcourrant straw flavor with little hops bitterness, low carbonation and a long sweet finish. FatPhil (16896) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 17, 2017

Bread and butter aroma, a bit sweet, gently spiced. Full smooth palate, gentle carbonation. Does cover the alcohol well, seems like a low-4 not a mid-5. Taste is also sweet and bread and butter. Ends a bit flat and dead, makes the taste feel heavier over time. Perhaps too sweet.
Cask, Euston Tap, with Muggins. Clear deep ruby colour. Sweet, caramelly, fruity, rich. Some hint of booze. Nice spicy finish, just enough bitterness to prevent it becoming cloying. Good coating of the mouth. A pretty good example of this very English style. CloakedDagger (2708) - - OCT 12, 2016
Bottle 50 cl. Pours a clear amber with a lacing, off-white head. Caramelly, butterish aroma. Medium body, rich, sweet caramel and toffee, only a little late hops. I guess the diacetyl is technically allowed in this beer, whether or not you like it is a different question. 121016
