Bottle pours hazy orange amber near clear with light white head and some lace. Aromas of caramel, diacetyl grain and caramel. Light grassy floral hop aromas and mineral yeast esters.
Bottle. BCA - Amber Brown in colour. Foamy off-white head. Very Malty; grainy malts, caramel/toffee. Spicy. Fruity; dark fruits. Hoppy, grassy hops. Bitter hoppy meets caramel malty; quite dry. Very drinkable, but it is only a shadow of the terrific and original 7.2% version. Progress I suppose but not in a good way. (2014-10-03)

Bottle from Waitrose on clearance for 99p! Bargain! Colour of strong tea - pours with lively head which rapidly disappears without a trace. Aroma of pine, dough and treacle. Taste is mellow with lasting tangerine and faint coffee. Dry mouthfeel. All round decent strong bitter. MarcinG (874) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - JAN 21, 2016
Butelka 500ml. Miedziany gleboki kolor z mala biala piana. W zapachu dominuje chmiel orzechy rodzynki. W smaku chmielowe ale nie gorzkie - czuc slody. Chlebowo tostowy posmak rodzynki orzechy ale takze "ziemisty" finisz. Dobre

Bottled, 500ml from Waitrose in Cirencester, Gloucs. Dark amber to copper with off white head. This started with a rich, nutty, malty character, quite roasty and full to the palate. The hops are earthy, leafy and reasonably bittering with an autumnal feel, pleasant leaf litter feel. There is a raisin and rum note, pleasant alcohol hints. I enjoyed this one. rotaman14 (624) - Wiesbaden, GERMANY - NOV 13, 2015
Deep amber, white head. Fairly malty and biscuity aroma, nothing extraordinary but it’s quite intense. Medium bitter, burnt taste, coffee- and herbal notes in the finish. Sjohnh (947) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2015
Fairly standard stuff. Golden brown with a small biege head. Light body, low carb. Dark toffee and malt. Hops give some hedgerow fruit, pear and banana. OK bitter.
