Cask at the Farmers Boy, St Albans, on 2nd March 2010. Copper to amber with white partly lacing head. Refreshing initially with malt in the nose. Slight sweetish nuttiness; citric hpp with orange and lemon fruit citrus to the tongue. Malt remains, yet some hoppy bitterness returns in the finish which is bittersweet. Fully enjoyable.

Cask conditioned at the Farmer’s Boy, St Albans. Chocolate brown coloured with a slight head. Aroma of preserved fruit and sweet malt. Flavour was of fruit ’n’ nut with a hoppy finish. An unusual but pleasant brew.

Cask handpull at Farmer’s Boy, St Albans. Deep chestnut colour with lasting beige head. Lots of malt in mouth, good fruit, raisins and sultanas and plums. Some balancing hop on finish. Bit too malty for me. Nice though. Ostrovni (17) - ENGLAND - JAN 21, 2007
On cask at The Farmers Boy, St Albans, 20 Jan 07. A cracking beer. Appearance is stunning - very dark, with a good solid head. Very malty but balanced with a ctirus hop presence that makes this a very unusual old ale. Very drinkable - we enjoyed many pints of the stuff on Stonch’s pub crawl (see http://stonch.blogspot.com for the write-up) Finn (7547) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 22, 2006

Half pint on cask at the brewpub. Missing head. Rusty copper in colour. The aroma is dominated by a tangy fruitiness. Flavour of dark berries with a solid touch of succulent oranges. Dry, bitter ending. A balanced dark brew throughout (Farmers Boy, St Albans 29.09.2006). imdownthepub (14547) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 1, 2006
Cask conditioned at The Farmers Boy, St Albans, Herts. Brown beer with no head. Particularly malty beer, brewed directly behind the pub and only sold through the Farmers Boy. Dry and smooth with a chunk of caramel, a very late dry hop on the tongue. Interesting.
