A lovely refreshing bitter. Sweet but not overpoweringly so with a lasting pleasant aftertasteTried it in bootle form which is very rare in England so it was a real treat. nigos (631) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - DEC 13, 2004
Deep tawny red hue with a decent off white head. Hoppy toffee nose, rich warming nutty taste with hints of coffee and toasty malt. A beer with some good complexities. Good stuff. kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - NOV 25, 2004
Nutty caramel aroma. Dark amber with tan head. Fruity nutty sweet start with a mild dry finish. Not bad. SilkTork (5755) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - NOV 19, 2004
Bottled. Part of the Fullers Autumn Fest Pack. A good toffee accented ale. Nice and clean with no tricky corners. Plastic smooth mouthfeel - as to be expected with a pasteurised beer. Cardboard notes all over the place. Strange mix of the good, the bad and the ugly. Feels strangely thick and heavy for a 4.8% beer - did they put some treacle in this? I’d be interested in experiencing this from the cask because it does have promise, but certainly in the bottle it’s a dead Harry. Emil (6065) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 13, 2004

Cask. Dark chestnut colour. Fruity, malty, flowery flavour. Very bitter, quite harsh aftertaste. JayBaxter (407) - Greater Manchester, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2004
Autumn pack also, dark copper colour with an off white head. Bitter / nutty, slight toffee flavour with a long finish leaparsons (10613) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2004
Bottled. Part of the Fullers Autumn Fest Pack. Nice amber colour with a small off white head. Aromas are nuts, toffee and caramel. Nice and malty with some yeast and banana. Flavours are biscuit, toffee malts with a pleasant nutiness. Gently roasted in character with a disappointing metallic finish rather than the dryness I was expecting. Still very good. haddonsman (1234) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2004
Bottled in the Fullers Autumn Selection pack. Desperatly average; dull brown body, whiff of malty nose, didn’t spot the raisin and caramel promised on the label. Pleasantly dry finish but not up to the other Fullers I’ve tried. rauchbier (3902) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2004
Bottle, from Sainsburys. Amber bronze, good lasting off white head and low gentle condition. Initially caramel heavy in the nose but with a developing hop note that brings it into balance and some fruitiness with time. Soft and fruity in the mouth with vanilla, caramel, a gentle toasty nuttiness and some butter notes. Long lingering roasty dry bitterness in the finish with some nuttiness.
