Absolutely fabulous. Suited my palate to a tee. All my favourites were in the mouth. Butter, fudge, molasses. Dry finish. Very creamy/oily palate. Extremely drinkable indeed. SilkTork (5801) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2004
Gravity @ The Battered Beer Festival. Copper coloured. This is how to use Marris Otter - good caramel and toffee and raspberry and apples and autumn hedgerows. One brilliant ale - full of assorted juicy flavours. Very moreish, very smooth and drinkable. Parma violets and pear drops in aroma. All malt. The finish is empty with just the merest hint of hop. A decent ale indeed. hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 29, 2007
Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Murky, muddy gold with a small white head. Sweet aroma, almost perfume. Sweet,fruity pear and apple peel taste. Pleasant late bitterness. I really liked this. RobBestwick (950) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 28, 2003
From the tap, dark tawny hue, malty nose, sweet and malty taste with a great body and aftertaste, excellent! TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 4, 2004
(nitro can)caramel and toffee aroma, earthy. Nitro can gives it that classic bubbly pour with a thick creamy head. Creamy mouthfeel, combined with a sweet flavour, some roasty malts. A solid english pint. There was a metallic aftertaste that was probably due to the can sitting around for awhile.

Cask Handpump. Very very very lively! Cloudy orange appearance, thick and silky on the palate. Scent is malty dough but in the mouth it is slightly bitter, with a slightly smoked hoppiness. Simple and refreshing. chriso (7586) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 22, 2017 I found much the same aromas and tastes that Silk Tork describes - apples & pears, berries & violets. Low hop profile, but very complex palate. However, felt that the overall effect was rather marred by the overly soft and short finish. Still a nice beer though. Cask (gravity), Battersea Beer Festival.

Bottle. Bronze and clear and left no lacing. Slightly bitter bit no dominating taste. A bit mundane bit reasonably drinkable. Bragesnak (5394) - Aarhus, DENMARK - APR 12, 2008

Malty and hoppy in aroma and taste. Balanced bitterness
