Bottled. Pours clear amber with a white head. Aroma is fruity. Taste is toffee and caramel. Dry hops finish. TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - APR 25, 2007
Bottle, a reddish amber with a yellowish bubbly head. A soapy malt aroma. A little soapy again in the mouth, and the malt flavour is somewhat earthy. Not such a good effort one from Fullers. RichardWilding (201) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 30, 2007
Bottled. Dark brown with a white head. Sweetish aroma, caramel. Somewhat nutty. Hint of dried fruit. Dry, moderately bitter finish. berkshirejohn (6770) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2006
Bottle: poured a reddish amber colour with an off-white head; malty aroma, full in the mouth with a nutty, malty taste and a gently bitter finish. OK, but not Fuller’s best beer. Fin (11067) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2006
Bottle, think that I got this in a Fullers brewers pack thing that they do, anyway it’s been kicking around for some time. Copper coloured beer with a malty aroma, some nuttiness in the taste along with pleasant malted flavours, quite a nice beer for this autumnal time of year.

Although I’m a fan or Fullers beers, i wasn’t overly impressed with this! Head was non existent, but did have a lovely amber glow to it. Very much a malt dominated brew,but I found it a bit unbalanced, there are some hops just noticable in the background,but they don’t play a major role...overall...well, not up to much really!!! harrisoni (19549) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 19, 2005
500ml bottle from Sainsburys. Attractive russet colour with disappearing beige head. Nice raisiny malt aroma. OK in mouth, but a bit too carbonated which is a shame. Some coffee on the toasty malts and some more burnt raisins. Nice warming beer. DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 21, 2005
Aroma is doughy, with maltiness coming around, maybe a little hops of an unknown sort too. Taste is initially all malt with a weak body, nuttyness comes through to help it out later on. I think i drank this beer to warm could do with a little chilling i recomn ratrher than room temp. johninmelb (1127) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 16, 2005
Bottle. Nutty nose. Deep amber with a thick creamy head and fiery copper centre. Flavour is malty, dry, and has hints of spiced fruit. Lingers on the tongue in a persitant and pleasant way. This lot just don’t make a bad beer. CampbellWilson (533) - SCOTLAND - OCT 10, 2005
Bottle from Sainsbury’s. Amber. Aroma predominantly malty (toffee and nuts) with pasteurised cardboard and boiled sweet characteristics. Little bit sweet. Carbonated mouthfeel, dry finish.
