JKaranka (58) - Cardiff, WALES - NOV 17, 2015
Decent mild. Pours mid-dark, chestnut brown. Trough the sparkler it has a tight cream-coloured head.
Not much aroma, some malt, some caramel. Flavour follows the same pattern: somewhat sweet, caramel, hint of nuts. There is a bit of bitterness to compensate, but this is a mainly malty easy-to-drink pint. The best part of it is its body: a fairly full body, rounded and satisfying for the abv.
Overall a decent, basic, beer that is easy to drink and does not ask the drinker too much. Travlr (24259) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - OCT 2, 2015
Cask at the Imperial in Worcester. Deep maroon brown color, beige head with solid lacing. Aroma of plums dipped in chocolate. Taste has cocoa and raisins. Tasty. FatPhil (15961) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 19, 2015
Cask (Fat Cat, Norwich) (5:4-:5:3-:10=2.7--)The_Osprey (7881) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2015
Dark, but very brief head. Sweet and bland and flat. Some burnt caramel, lots of boredom. Almost certainly not at its prime, and clearly has potential. Shame to have a brewery tick like this, should rerate.
Cask at GBBF 2015. Dark brown, clear, still, very small white head. Aroma is a little soapy. Body is medium to light, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is light chocolate, rehydrated raisins, a little straw, watery finish. Leighton (21074) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2015
Cask at GBBF 2015, day 2 - London. Pours clear deep copper with a creamy, white head. The nose holds musty toasted bread and grains. Light sweet flavor with some tangy fruits, berries, earth. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Bready finish, some toast, learthy fruits. Not bad.
