Bottle conditioned. A real dark amber beer with a thick white head. Plenty of roasty malt and hops. A very good beer. hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2007
Cranmer’s 1549 Evensong service is one of the jewels of the Anglican ritual. The eponymous beer is pretty good too. Dark red brown with a huge, gushing off white head. Malty aroma, earthy and basic. Taste is roasted malt and ashy with a sourness in the background and some bitterness to follow. I enjoyed it after All Souls’ Evensong in a medieval parish church deep in the English Midlands, which seemed the right place and time. DownsouthGav (601) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2007
Fruity nose reminds me of christmas pudding and roasted elements, deep copper, foaming head disappears. Light body. malty mouthfeel, coffee and caramel notes, not much bitterness. A nice beer that as nice as it is could have been better. Sigmund (7536) - Tau, NORWAY - JUN 24, 2007
500 ml bottle, bought in Scarborough. Bottle conditioned. ABV is 5.0%. Copper coloured beer with a large and lasting creamy tan head. Pleasant aroma of fruity hops and malt. Lovely malty flavour with some caramel and fruity hops. A very nice and drinkable beer indeed. imdownthepub (14557) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2007
Bottle conditioned, 500ml. Ruby to brown with slight white head. Rich malty beer, fruity with a touch of caramel, licorice, sweetish and a little chocolatey. Good drinking through the (almost) pint. A good BCA.

This one floods out of the bottle upon opening. It’s dark brown with a nice head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt and caramel - yummi... The flavour has a lot of roasted malt, that gives notes of caramel and nuts. It has a nice, dry bitterness. A really nice one. ante (3373) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 29, 2007
Bottled at Monks Café, Stockholm. Pours out in a hazy dark reddish brown colour. Small bubbly tan-coloured head. Malty and a bit yeasty aroma of fudge, dades, black cherrirs and earth. Medium bodied with nots of nuts, fudge, grass and mild licorice. Rather bitter finish of grass, nut-shels, orange-peels and metal with sweet undertones of cocoa-powder.Pretty good! thewolf (12600) - Kolding, DENMARK - APR 8, 2007
Bottle. Pours a beautiful dark amber. Head is of medium size, off white and a touch foamy. Aroma is based around a malty caramel-ness. Mouthfeel is round, but still has lots of small bubbles. Flavour has some liquorice, anis, coriander, coffee - some cinnamon. It finishes on a strong dry, woody hops-note. cgarvieuk (24536) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 6, 2007
