Theydon_Bois (18966) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2016
Cask at the Triangle Tavern, Lowestoft, 21/11/16. Clear golden orange with a decent off white head that retains well. Nose is sweet malt, caramel, booze tunes, light honey, orange peel. Taste comprises caramel, sweet malt, fruit cake, candied orange, bread pudding, toasted grains. Full bodied, soft carbonation, light warming booze in the close. Easy drinking barley wine but a touch 1D. Some local chugged a pint of this (1pm) in less time than it took 2 of us to get through a half!

Mistakenly purchased after poor reading of the beer menu at the new bell Inn not realising the strength. Expected it to set my teeth on edge but rather recieved a pleasant taste. The taste makes the strength obvious but not paint stripper territory.

jjsint (2924) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - OCT 24, 2015
Handpull cask at Engineers Arms 2015 Beer Festival, Henlow. Golden brown with plentiful white head. Buttered toast and weedkiller in the aroma. Not balanced or pleasant to smell. Sweet syrupy taste, but the vegetal/medicinal note pervades in the finish. Body is full as would be expected. This beer has problems.

old ass review just found on my phone. Goes back to Aug 2013. Presumably a bottle share with the lovely and sexy Ferris. Highly detailed notes claim: :light sweetness, orange rind, lemon, earthy shit, pepper and heat". Sounds like a winner... not.

Gravity at the Stowmarket Festival of Beer and Brewing. Amber with a foamy cream head. The aroma is fruity with orange citrus and caramel. The taste starts sweet with lots of citrus before boiled sweet flavours. Warming alcohol, but not overly evident. Pear drop notes in there too along with a medicinal edge. Not hugely complex, but enjoyable all the same.

UPDATED: MAY 6, 2015 Thanks to Emma from Green Jack for this! Nice sugary aroma. Ripe prunes, fruity yeast esters. Some oak. Taste is lemons, nice bitterness, lime cordial and faint strawberry. Very well made. Good session stuff. Some candi sugar. Aroma from the yeast eminds me of De Dolle. Nice work.
