Wrote down a score ages ago but ni5 any tasting notes. Recording for posterity. Good stuff. NallePalle (690) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - SEP 5, 2015
Bottle, 50 cl, Messob, Uppsala. Overall pleasant, interesting aroma of coffee, caramel, intense initial taste, small finish. Great to African food (and probably much more). BigBen2120 (688) - Derry, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 1, 2008
500ml brown bottle from The Lighthouse in Manchester. Pours a translucent dark brown-red with nearly an inch of off-white head. Smells roasty with hints of English hops, but the aroma is not that apparent. Tastes roasty, malty, nutty with just a hint of herbal hops present toward the finish. Tastes are fairly subtle, but are all very pleasant. Smooth, medium mouth-feel with some carbonation but not too much. Very drinkable, this beer is. At 5$ per bottle, it’s a little pricier than something I’d drink on a daily basis. But it’s a smooth, easy-drinking, solid English beer that I may pick up from time to time.

Cask at Kingston Arms, Cambridge. Weak taste especially considering the ABV. Slightly sweet, average bitter...

Bottle shared on the 4th- Poured an amber red-clear, head went away real quick. Malts and caramel with a hint of dark fruits. Light in carbonation-thin body but not a bad mild beer. DownsouthGav (601) - Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2008
