A Mes rate: bottle thanks to Tashi.
Lovely red brown colour with a bubbly off white head. Peachy fruity aroma with some pineapple and sweet malt in the background. Dry and dusty flavour with some alka seltzer like tangy character. Earthy malt is a little too earthy if you get me. Dry finish with a hint of bitterness. nothing special.

arch 2007. Brighton Beer Fest. A dark beer with some roast and hop bitterness, and a lot of garden mud character. Vague wet wood and old socks. Quite pleasant, but also potentially unpleasant. Initially sweet tasting, but mouthfeel is quite dry. [3.0]
March 2017. Prince of Wales, Southampton. Im not enjoying this, and wont be able to finish the pint. Greasy, damp, and generally unpleasant. Not sure if this is lacking freshness or simply unpleasant. [1.9]

chriso (7533) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 18, 2006
Cask (gravity dispense) at Ealing Beer Festival, May 2006. More deep copper colour than red, Id say. Toffee and faint chocolate in the aroma. Soft, smooth mouthfeel with some caramel malt and a touch of treacle sweetness. Dries out a bit on the finish. Despite all the malt touches, the mouthfeel was a bit lightweight. More hop presence would have pepped this up a bit.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 16, 2006
[email protected] Beer On Broadway. Malty, lightly toasted, roasty characters, with light touches of berry fruit. Finishes with a roughy grainy character and has some bitterness aswell.

Cask Conditioned at Ealing Beer on Broadway Festival, 2006. Ruby. Very richly fruity with some ash/roasty character. Flavourful.
