Bottle from the brewery, at the holiday cottage, 28/10/15. Clear copper amber with a decent light beige covering that retains well. Nose is malt forward, toffee, light vanilla, trace of brown bread. Taste comprises biscuit malt, toffee, dark fruit, raisen, light tobacco. Medium bodied, light prickly carbonation but not in a detrimental way, semi drying close with a trace of bitterness. Decent well rounded bitter.

Leighton (20794) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 22, 2014
Gravity cask at the Bree Louise - London. Pours hazy amber with a bubbly off-white head. Tangy berries in the bose, some dour malts, twigs, leather. Light sweet flavor with more tangy fruits, leaves, wood, leather, berries. Light bodied with fine, spritzy carbonation. Further ripe, lightly sour fruits on the finish, faint apples, cherry, plum. In poor condition but also kind of novel.

StueyD (1581) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2013
A mid amber coloured beer with a frothy white head. A strong nose, hoppy, fruity, a touch appley but nothing derogatory, in fact, adds to the lemony hop aromas, all backed up by a cereal, biscuity malt aroma. Dry mouthfeel. A bitter hop taste to start, with citrus and forest fruits. This is followed up by a dry, cereal, malt flavour with a hint of sweetness in the background. The finish is bitter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

berkshirejohn (6407) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2013
50cl bottle from The Naked Grape, Alresford.A headless, murky chestnut pour, looking rather liveless; aroma of chocolate malts; the taste is mainly of tart apples, then a sweet, grainy, body develops with a touch of milk chocolate; but the tart fruit dominates and carries through to the end. Not a very pleasant pint - drunk well inside its Best Before date (07/13), but seemingly way past its best.

Quack-Duck (9391) - Down South, GERMANY - AUG 31, 2011
bottle from Lyme Regis Wines. Quite dark brown, aroma of freshly ground espresso coffee beans and cocoa powder. Light, shy malty background with coffee and bitter chocolate. Very rich and full of character.
