Bottle in the Sweffling White Horse, Suffolk. Deep chestnut with a thin off white head. The taste is quite fruity with roast chocolate notes. Light spice and toffee too. OK. ManVsBeer (11487) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2015
Bottle from Cambridge Wine Merchants, Cambridge. Brown with no head. There’s some darker malts in here, but has plenty of taste with a sweetness in both aroma and taste and a sugary stickiness within its texture. Stuu666 (15526) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 22, 2015

Bottle from Cambridge Wine Merchants, consumed at home. Second beer in my new digs in Ely. Pours light brown, almost copper/Amber. Thin tan head. Light aroma: chocolate, caramel, cereal. Slightly musty. Taste is a delicate malty sweet, pleasant if not complex. Short to medium finish was a flash of caramel malt in the aftertaste. Nice enough.

Bottle from the Suffolk Food Hall, Ipswich. Attractive deep copper with a moderate cream head and a middling fizz. Sweet Horlicks maltiness up front with some chocolate too. Buttered diacetyl on toast to follow which may put some off but I rather like it in the right place- and it suits this beer. There’s a slightly off sour note in the finish but in general I quite enjoyed this. john44 (3510) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2014

Clear deep amber beer, good white head, short lived. Light semi crisp palate. Light sweet malt, just a tad lagerish. Subtle dark malts and dark toffee. Whispers of yeast and red berry fruits. Finishes neutral with some minerals. Not bad! Fairly drinkable!
Bridge Tavern) Dark brown colour with a medium off white head and medium body. Aroma/taste is roasted and nutty caramel malt, toffee hints in there as well. Not bad overall.
