Pours a dark chestnut with a cream head. Notes of alcohol on the aroma and taste with a bitter finish. dantheman278 (1361) - SCOTLAND - AUG 12, 2011
Bottle at home. Dark ruby brown with a small head. Woody chocolate malt nose, hint of caramel. Sweet malt front, red fruit notes and a slightly spiced coffee finish. Pretty decent. onystrom (1333) - Magellan Hunter! - Skanderborg, DENMARK - FEB 12, 2006
Beautiful clear red amber color with great head. Hoppy and slightly bitter aftertaste. Avarage. biz82 (1327) - austin, Texas, USA - MAR 6, 2008
Clear dark red, tan head. Fruity, nutty, musty caramel aroma with a hint of hops. Lightly sweet with mellow roasted malt flavor accompanied by sticky UK hops. Nice big body. Has a little astringency and the bitterness could be smoother but all in all a nice ale. apoptosis (1317) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 25, 2006
Dark mahogany-brown body, with only a small head. Noteably low in alcohol. Musty, putrid aroma- very malty, but no real defining characteristics. Thin body with simply caramel and malts, no complexity at all. Sour, sweet finish.

simple brew. nothing fancy, just a typical british brown ale; but enjoyable. JCW (1278) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 16, 2003
The one I am rating is old. Ruby red in color pours with a thick head. Smell like an ESB, fruity, malty and with Northern Brewer and/or KentGolding Hops. Tastes carmelly and bitter. Acidic finish. Good Beer! turbo (1271) - Arizona, USA - JAN 27, 2008
Light aroma of fruitand malts, caramel.
Flavor is semi sweet, malts,fruits ,caramel.
Thin,smooth and easy drinking with a slight roasty finish.
Good beer...could have used more though. OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 1, 2005
Deep ruby amber with a smallish beige head and brief lace. Malty and molasses malt with a touch of bandaid aroma. Nice medium chewy palate. Low pleasant sweet malt medium bitter hops start moving back to caramel and toffee sweet but not cloying finish. Lotsa nice character for a 5.3% ale.

Nice solid ale. Sweet and slightly bready. Nice dark ruby color. Good bitter hoppy finsih.
