Bottle. It pours a finger-thick beige head over a brown body. The aroma has some bread crusts, but it’s rather weak. Toffee and dried fruits too. Toffee, chocolate, bread crusts and a hint of bitterness in the flavor. Some pine cone and grass. Medium body, quite dry, with a nice carbonation level. Lasting toffee and bread crust finish. Nothing impressive going on here, but it’s a decent ale for sure. 140816

Cask conditioned at The Last Drop Inn, York. Brown red with white head. I got a smokey flavour out of the roased sweet malt, a hint of bonfire, then a sweet toffee / caramel. Not exactly bitter, but reasonable and unusual.

500ml bottle from EuroSpar Tomasjord, shared with Richard. Clear reddish-brown body colour. Low beige head. Grainy malts on the nose, mid-sweet. Taste of malts with notes of dark chocolate and coffee offset by dusty hops. Dry malt bitter endnotes. Easy to drink and foods friendly. Alright (Tromsø 18.04.2014).

Fin (10974) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2013
Bottle picked up by dad from Geltsdale Brewery, cheers dad. Consumed at home Sunday 17.08.13 Reddy brown pour with light tan head. I chilled this (not sure why) so aroma is difficult to pick up. Maybe as it warms ever so slightly perhaps I"m getting a little watery spent coffee grains. Touch chewy with some caramel and biscuit. Its one of yer’ fairly average twiggy brown beers as some would describe them. Its ok. A5 A3 T6 P3 Ov11 2.8

Cask, Criterion, Leicester. Copper, red with a small head. Aromas are blackberry with liquorice and herbal notes. Vinous with spices. Flavours are earthy "kentish" hops with sweet berries and toffee. Dry on the finish. Some herbal notes. Decent.
