hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, - DEC 22, 2007
2007 Vintage. Hazy orange brown. Not a pretty sight. Raw, slightly painty caramel aroma, but there’s a pear fruitiness too. Alcohol dominates the taste with sour fruitiness followed by a little dryness. It’s the sort of beer you label as ’interesting’ rather than ’delicious’.

chenko (14) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 9, 2017
2016 Vintage Drank mid 2017. Aroma - Sweet malt smell, caramel, some dark fruit, dried dates, bubblegum, raisins. Appearance - Pours deep gold to pale amber, hazy and a weak off white head Taste - bready, toasty, caramel flavour, some citrus, orange, bubblegum, raisins and some banana. Mouthfeel - medium full to full body, low carb and a creamy feel that leaves a oily feel in your mouth Overall - A great beer packed with tons of difference flavours..love the yeast flavours coming out in this beer, the slight bubble gum and banana really fit in well with all the heavy malt flavours.
