Dark amber white head. Smells of wet hay, wild honey caramel and citrus. Tastes of crisp hops and toasted grains, blooming tastes of pale fruit, honeyed malts and lemony citrus. Centering note of alcohol, compliments the structure really well. Feels dry and yet fat, long long tasty citrus and grassy hop flavors. JesseM (1158) - Margaritaville, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 18, 2011
500mL lickbow bottle. Pours exactly like the picture which is comforting I guess. Smells of creamy chrystal malt and a faint whiff of British hops. Not booze. Flavour has more depth to it, with pale and chrystal malt backing up some semi-spicy hops. Alcoholic bite in the finish. Despite the strength and thicker body, it still has a creamy feel to it and goes down easily. I like how Fuller’s can produce beers at very high alcoholic percentages which you still want to pound away because of how delicious they are. Gets waaaaay better as it warms. Claims to be ’...reminiscent of sweet orange oil’. I wasn’t aware oranges produced an oil, interesting. Thanks Fuller’s! barncatmatt (2287) - Cambridge, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 18, 2011

500 mL bottle. (bb 16 jul 12). More bronze than golden. Small off-white head. The aroma is quite malty, leaning toward bread. Orchard fruit flowers. No booze! Complex malt in the flavour, but it isn’t heavy. Cereal. A touch of fruit. Balance of sweetness and bitterness. Enough booze to add body. I’m gonna need a couple more of these.

UPDATED: MAR 6, 2012 Bottle from Systembolaget in Strømstad, Sweden. Golden copper colour with a white head. Plum, honey and caramel aroma. Well blended sweetness, and light bitter flavour. A really outstandig ale. BeerSkull (1373) - SWEDEN - NOV 4, 2011
Aroma and taste of sweet malt with elements of alcohol. Ok hops tone in the flavor, but otherwise, no thanks! MadIndian (2743) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 27, 2011
Copper pour with a mild earth and hop aroma. A nice malt, hop and bitter flavor. It’s a nice refreshing beer that finishes oddly sweet. alexandereno (2) - GREECE - OCT 12, 2011 does not count
Good taste and aroma ,full palate with a medium body and a nice aftertaste .Pretty much as a good ale beer should be .Not the best ale i have drunk ,but you should definitely try it if you are into ales. prawlie (1633) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2011
500 mL bottle at home into a pint glass. Amber brown beer with a well formed head. Smells of alcohol, red fruit, estery and complex. Interesting stuff. Sharp, a touch sour and bitter, a bit of roast. Tastes not unlike Gordon’s Finest Gold, but perhaps a little more refined. Still, its a bit too acidic for me. Not as good as I thought it would be.
