COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
First seen as a one-off cask release at Ealing beer festival in July 2012. Released in bottles in August 2012.
The third beer in the Past Masters series was first brewed on Thursday, September 10th 1931. The origins of the Old Burton style have changed over the course of the 20th Century, but this version is brewed to the authentic recipe - a true recreation of a wonderful long-lost beer. A rich, golden ale with a big malt character and an incredible balance of sweetness and warmth on the palate.

madquacker (1138) - Canberra ACT, AUSTRALIA - JUN 14, 2014
Excellent big ABV with a nice head. Resins and some sweetness with astringent alcohol burn in the back ground. Overall nice for a wintery evening.

oh6gdx (26482) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 13, 2014
Bottled. Rubyish brown colour with a mediumsized slightly off-white head. Aroma is sweet malts, some mild bready and toffeeish notes along with a nice herbal, grassy and floral touch to it. Flavour is floral, grassy and herbal along with mild alcohol and some sweet malts as well. Very balanced and pleasant to drink.

stravale (3055) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - JUN 4, 2014
Bottle from Old Stand, Mullingar [040614]
Chestnut brown, clear, big frothy white head, some lacing
Aroma of fruity caramel, raisin, soft toffee, some alcohol
Taste of soft caramel, raisin and sultana fruits, some toffee, bit boozy for the abv but not disconcerting, nice but less complex than expected
Palate - soft carb, medium body, smooth, fairly swet, dab of alochol, Finish as main flavour with more warming alcohol
Overall - Only got a slight mineraly edge on the aroma initially which dissipates. Quite a pleasant warming smooth ale

BeerViking (4699) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 17, 2015 Bottle, pours a deep dark amber with a fast-settling beige head, nose is caramel malt with hints of butter and toast, and a spicy herby woody edge. Dry herbal bitterness over a sweet toffee body, strong warming alcohol bite, a little burnt marmalade (hey, it?s Fullers...) and a dry bitter-sweet finish. Yum. Re-rate 18 months on, less caramel and more oakiness, a little drier and somehow toastier.

martin00sr (3999) - Haderslev, DENMARK - MAY 7, 2014
Clear, dark copper. Small offwhite head. Fruity and malty aroma, some caramel. Flavour is malty and caramellysweetness. Soft mouthfeel and slightly bitter finish. Smooth. Nice.

3.6
haukur (1946) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - MAY 1, 2014
red into brown, clear with an off white head. Some bread notes in the aroma, some malt. Nice balance, not too malty and not so sweet with still a hint of bitterness left in it. Balanced strong ale which follows the english style to the letter.

3.6
Svesse (8576) - Hšsselby, SWEDEN - APR 24, 2014
(Bottle) Reddish amber colour with lasting, beige head. Malty, fruity nose with caramel, red fruit, roasty malt, dark bread, dried fruit, a touch of chocolate and spicy hops. Malty, roasted taste with notes of caramel, red fruit, dark bread, figs, brown sugar, orange peel, a touch of chocolate and a balanced, spicy bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a slight sweetness. Tasty and quite well balanced for its strength. Nice one.

jocavalieri (3) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2014 does not count
A cor é linda, a espuma tambem. Esperava um pouco mais, amarga mas aguada no final. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
