Tasted 02/06/2008. 500ml bottle from Regional Winesand Spirits. Pours a brilliant reddish amber with a tight creamy light tan head. I wonder where the yeast is on this bottle-conditioned ale and then notice big flocculant chunks at the bottom of the glass... a little 5-star magic there. Nutty, biscuit and caramel malt, milk chocolate, a little floral note off the yeast and a earthy, fruity, tea-like Golding aroma. Lovely! It’s a little tired in the mouth but carries through all of the above flavours with hefty, dominanant hop flavour (fuggles here too), a mild to firming bitterness and a perfectly gentle carbonation. This’d be a real cracker fresh, I reckon. beerledgend (1196) - Waterloo, Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 18, 2007
Bright red in colour with thin cream colured head. Caramel aroma, well balanced malt and hops flavours, warm mouthfeel. Nothing too adventerous. downender (8584) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2007
Bottle. Reddish-amber with next to no head. Fruity, marmalade aroma followed by flavours of fruit and sweet malt. Finish was moderately dry. Good.

Bottle. Clear deep amber with a thick yellowish head. Caramel aroma with hints of grass,berries and even milk chocolate. Berries taste move to the front, moving towards a caramel chocolatey finish. Decent hop bitterness. Enjoyable. Maria (10212) - Thisted, DENMARK - JUL 3, 2007
It’s a nice copper color and the head is moderate. The aroma is malty with notes of caramel and roasted malt. The flavour is delicious!! It has notes of roasted malt, fruit, a hint of caramel and a nice bitter and hoppy finish. Very tasty and nicely balanced. joe19612 (2900) - camberley, Surrey, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2007

Bottle. Aroma of sour malt and crystal malt. flavour is a bit thin, with a malty sweetness, and asome more crystal malt type flavours. Little in the way of hops in the finish.
