Cask-conditioned at the Seven Stars, Bristol 4/7/2017. Deep amber in colour, with a decent, white, head. Bready malts, slightly sour red berries, some leafy hops and moderately bitter finish. So so drinking. jackl (8301) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 13, 2017
July 9th, 2015. Cask @ Chelmsford Ale Festival. Amber pour with a small head. Toffee malt on the nose and little else. A touch of red fruit skin. Creamy and sweet stuff. Caramel-dipped apple flavor. Flabby, and one-dimensional. Not bad, but very one note. redders1974 (1581) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2016

Appearance - amber red with a decent lacy head.
Nose - burnt toffee and molasses. A bit earthy.
Taste - more burnt toffee, some red fruits.
Palate - light to medium bodied with a tangy texture and a long tangy yet sweet finish. A bit thin.
Overall - it’s a solid ale.

Bottle at ash’s. Pours deep amber, nose is quite foul, like a farm, burnt dung, sour, taste is sweet, cereal, toffee. I understand the name now. allmyvinyl (10952) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 8, 2016
500ml bottle shared with Ashton McCobb and Stuu666. Pours clear dark amber with a thin white head. Aromas of burnt dung, treacle, something sour. Appropriately named so far. Taste is marginally better, sweet finish. jamesie1857 (1978) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 12, 2015
500ml bottle from Booths, Windermere - Deep ruby red body, no head - shame. Nose comes through as strong cake fruits, lots of robust malts and a slight nuttiness there too. Taste is rather sweet at first, but pans out to a bitterness at the end. Fruity, bit of a kick of sharp citrus, and possibly a bit of burnt toast in there as well. madmitch76 (25382) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2015

Chelmsford Beer Festival. Cask. Lightly hazy amber beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is smooth with decent fine carbonation. Nice condition. Pretty sweet malts, mild cream and mild toffee. Tangy but sweetish dried fruits. Little candy fruits. Light semi dry finish. Pretty sweet but okay. And 4.5% is strong? Hello it’s not 1940 any more!
Bottle, White Hart Inn, Hawes, North Yorkshire. From 2008 notes. Pour deep dark brown. Malty aroma. Quite sour. I remember the disappointment. I had wanted to like this beer.
