From old tasting notes. Brilliant amber red color. Thick creamy beige head. Wonderfully buttery, toffee malt aroma. A robust malty flavor with a generous hop balance (Kent Goldings?). Very true to the British style of bitter. Gusler (2652) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAR 20, 2001
I liked the malt and hop bite of this beer, strong and robust flavors that stand out, all in all a very good beer. kublai3 (176) - Staten Island, New York, USA - MAR 6, 2001

Nice beer that is all caramel. I loved the malt complex on this one, lost of oaties and sugar, with some interesting but very muted nut tastes in the mix. A fine beer. Holdwine (1237) - Beertimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 21, 2003
Nicely done ale, still produced in small quantities by Clipper City Brewery. On draft it was rich mahagony in pour with a decent offwhite head. Wonderful maltiness reminded me of roasted chestnuts.

From cask at Northern Virginia Summer BrewFest. Beer pours an slightly darker amber color with a white head. The aroma is sweet, with a nice malt component. Pretty refreshing in my opinion. nuplastikk (6453) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 23, 2008
12oz bottle. Deep amber brown color with a frothy head. Mellow doughy aroma. A crisp hoppy taste at first sip, which fades into a smooth, medium to light bodied malty sweet finish. A pretty pleasant session beer, but nothing special. jeremyd365 (124) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - AUG 24, 2008
Pours a deep amber copper with a little white head and low to medium carbonation. Smell is of a sweet lager and the flavor is fruity yet not citrusy--perhaps a slight hint of apple or pear. It feels medium bodied and tart on the tongue with a sweet tartness left afterward. This is a pretty decent amber and the fruity hints make it original and quite drinkable.

Bottle. Moderately sweet caramel malt aroma. Dark copper body, small head. Flavor is nutty, with caramel malt. Pleasant finish. Very nice. Drake (14078) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 18, 2009
12 ounce bottle from Beer Run in Charlottesville, VA. Pours a clear dark red color with nearly no head. Aroma is caramel with nutty notes and subtle chocolate. Taste is chocolate, caramel, leafy hops, caramel, peach, apple and other subtle fruity notes. Medium bodied.
