Bottle. Coppery brown with medium white long lasting head. Aroma malty with some hopps as well. Taste is mainly malty and smooth with a good mouthfill, and ending up quite bitter. A great session beer. Is it really a brown ale ??? I would call it a bitter.

Bottlwe thanks to brother. Aroma is skunky, with buttery nutty malts. Taste is biscuity caramel, heavily skunked by the clear glass bottle.

Aug 07 Cask conditioned @ Golden Lion, York. Malty toffee with nutty toast and balanced earthy hops. This was quite nice and suprisingly so for me as I often find the maltier ales get a bit much after a while.

[email protected] Good and intenst malty aroma, just the right amount of head, good hop bitterness and malty flavor.

Draught. Very small almost non-existant white head. Clear cobber body. Weak fruity aroma. Caramel flavor with a nice hoppy touch. Long and good aftertaste. Low carbonation.

Cognac color, nice and lasting head. The flavour has a nice bitterness all the way through and it has notes of fruit (melon), clover and flower. It’s a charming and uncomplicated ale, that reminds me of a more bitter version of Fursty Ferret.

TheDog (586) - Aarhus, DENMARK - MAR 7, 2007
Bottle. Amber color with small head. Aroma and taste of caramel, bread and apricot. Pleasant sweetness and medium bitter finish. Funny idea with the old crook, Greengrass from "Heartbeat" on the "frontpage" of this BA.

leaparsons (10712) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2006
Bottle. Light amber and gold with an off-white foam. Aromas are sweet caramel with some sweet apricot. Flavours are sweet caramel with apricot jam and gentle but tasty hops. Pretty good. My claim to fame is that I once almost ran the actor on the label over. He crossed the road without looking. The old fool.

fonefan (50762) - VestJylland, DENMARK - NOV 23, 2006
Bottle. Light amber color with a small off-white head. Malty and fruity aroma. Malty caramel sweet flavor with a light dry and hoppy finish.

I thought Daleside’s Ripon Jewel was outstanding. This is also pretty good. Bottle. Amber colour with a small head. Aroma of toast and marmalade malt. Slightly too much fizz, but a pleasant sweet maltiness in the taste gave way to a medium bitter finish.
