Bottle. Dark brown ale with a very lively and thick off white head. Nose is asparin, some lemons. Taste is a bit bland. There’s a hint of chocolate, some asprin, a touch of tea... blergh. imdownthepub (15514) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2017
Draught at The Archerfield Walled Garden Brewery, Dirleton, E.Lothian. Dark brown with cream head. Quite a malty, toffee’d beer, some sweet fruitiness, peachy, caramel notes. Never really gets bitter for me but a reasonable beer. Grumbo (4254) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2017

Cask @ The Windsor Castle, Kensington, London. Clear, dark brown body with a medium sized, dense, beige head. Aroma has toffee, toast and fruit-caramel. Flavor is smooth, mild roasted medium sweet malt, caramel and medium bitterness. Medium body and average, nice aftertaste. A fine and smooth ale somewhere in between a bitter and a mild. tommann (4022) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2016

Cask at Milton Keynes Beer Festival; hazy dark copper pour with a thin off white head, aroma has sweet caramel, taste has bready malts, some fruit action. mutz (1144) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 26, 2016
Donkerbruin rode kleur. Aroma van caramel, gebrande mout. Smaakt dun en waterig. bitterzurig, vaag mout. Onaangename bitterzure afdronk. Ik vind er niks aan, misschien een slechte fles? Heidbummer (976) - SCOTLAND - FEB 21, 2016
Pours dark, decent tight head. Promises a lot on the nose: caramel and hops. Drinks a bit disappointing as sweeter than it should be. Lots of malt and caramel but not enough bitterness for me. Easy drinking. A decent session beer but for the sweetness which is just a touch too prominent.
