I enjoyed this in a bottle at the Red Lion pub in Chicago, Il. A very British-tasting Ale (duh!) and, of course, I enjoyed it much better when I had it out of a Cask while London. Still, not a bad beer even in the bottle. Malty yet almost miraculously smooth. A subtle hint of hard candy flavoring. A very "chewy" beer. Coats the mouth well.
9. 12. 2017, Ljubljana. Bottled. Served a bit underchilled. Aroma held back, hints of corn. Colour is dark orange/amber with off-white head with some retention. Taste is somewhat malty sweet in the beginning, not intense, swallowing creeps in fine bittering which lingers and rings out slowly in the aftertaste. Nice. Med bodied, even thin a bit, easy dryish finish. Good under proper circumstances, but just not my favourite style. p0urmeac0ld0ne (310) - Merthyr Tydfil, WALES - DEC 8, 2017

Amber beer with lots of malt sweetness and some dry hoppiness in the finish. Dont really get its rating a fairly standard strong amber ale. Zilverenmaan (304) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - DEC 3, 2017
Aroma and taste mostly sweetish malts at first, some caramel, some apple, subtle fruity hops, somewhat grainy MF, light bitter finish. Starts of a bit too sweet for my taste but surprisingly complex. beergearbox (117) - London, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 29, 2017
