Bottle shared in London - many thanks to Daniel. Pours lightly hazy orange-gold with a creamy, white head. The nose suggests mild oxidation, marmalade, crackers, wood. Medium sweet flavour with jammy citrus, mild caramel, pale bread, golden raisins. Medium to full bodied, lightly oily, with fine carbonation. Lightly warming in the finish, with more ripe, jammy citrus fruits, light caramel, more pale bread. Very good stuff. anstei (2169) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - DEC 2, 2016

Holding up well. Midpack in a 6 year vertical, but only because everything was still solid. No oxidation to speak of, hops are close to dead and gone, if they were ever really there to begin with. More toffee and breadier than the 2 older versions. still tons of dark fruit with a warming finish. AshtonMcCobb (6501) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 15, 2016
