Theydon_Bois (19546) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2012
Bottle at the Sussex Arms, Twickenhamd Green - Jan ’12. Poured to a mahogany brown colour, red tinges when held to the light and a small white/beige head.
A malty aroma greets the nose along with caramel and light hopping.
In the taste, malts, a little dried fruit, caramel/toffee and a little warming alcohol especially in the finish.
Mouthfeel is of a medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation and fairly drinkable and smooth.

Bottle at The Rake. Not a great aroma. But its a decent sub ESB malty beer. Better in mouth and finish than on aroma. Tad oxidised on aroma. Fine. saxo (18571) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 2, 2012
Bottle. Nice head with good duration. Color is brown. Aroma and taste are roast malt, fruits, caramel, nuts, notes of peat and hops. Oakes (17697) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 16, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2012 Draught, 2012. Murky amber colour. Sweet with a figgy character. Too sweet and the phenols are too strong. Still not into this one.TBone (17581) - Pori, FINLAND - DEC 30, 2010
Bottle, Brewery Creek, 2008
Gold-tinged amber-brown colour. It’s a really nice colour, actually. Weak head. Toasty, earthy nose with some brown sugar and tobaccoey hop notes. Heavily toasty palate with caramel & cheesy oxidized hop accents. Sweetish finish. Rather boring.

Clear deep ruby color, good creamy beige head. Light citrus, caramel and berries in the nose. Medium-bodied. Licorice, malts, light hoppyness. Very much like an English ESB-style brew. Balanced but a bit bland.
Bottle. Slightly hazy amber with small beige head. Aroma is malt, caramel and a little dark fruits. Flavour is malt, caramel, dark fruits, medium sweet, hops, spices and little bitter. FatPhil (16102) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 16, 2013

355ml bottle (Bacchanalia, Cambridge, for [email protected]
Mega mushroom aroma. Dirty taste. Sticky. Really not a good drinker at all. Sorry guys, don’t hold this against me.
Bottle - Caramel and roasted malts with a bit of alcohol burn. Dark clear copper with a brown head. Malty with a bit of burnt orange and spice. OK, but nothing special.

Bottle from ericandersnavy. Pours ruddy copper with a decent foamy beige/tan head. Deep roast malt aroma. Medium plus body with foamy carbonation. Flavor is mostly malt with something like herby bitter. Heavy in taste, if not in alcohol. Not at all sweet. Different sort of stuff. DSG (14838) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 11, 2012
Bottle sample at "Beers 2012" exhibition in Tel Aviv. Clear dark amber. Aroma of malt, caramel, some fruitiness and a bit of alcohol spiciness. Sweet malty flavor with caramel, honey and a drier finish. Medium-bodied.
