Bottle from BB Wines, Windsor. This is an amber beer with sweet caramel flavours, fruit and slight bitterness and toffee on the finish. BantamSpirit (18) - ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2013
Very very pleasant. Full bodied bitter with a slight sweet finish. Head clears quite quickly and not much fizz, which is all the better for bitter. jmgreenuk (9452) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - MAR 4, 2013
Bottle from Stirchley Wines, Birmingham. Poured a clear amber with a thin white head and broken lace. The aroma is malty with hoppy notes. The flavour is medium bitter and malty with a nice rounded bitterness on the palate and into the aftertaste. A drinkable session beer. deanso (10134) - Chiang Mai, THAILAND - MAR 4, 2013

Bottle from SH Jones Wines, Leamington. Clear fizzing copper with a persistent white foam. Lightly buttered raffia aroma with hints of nuttiness. Watery with faint toffee, aniseed and toffee streaks. Just another middling, middle of the road mid-brown bitter from the middle of England I’m afraid.

Bottle. Pours a golden color with a small off-white head. Has a sweetish malty aroma with some weak caramel hints. Sweetish malty caramel flavor. Has a sweetish malty caramel finish. yngwie (17053) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 7, 2010
Bottle, shared by fonefan. A clear, dark golden beer topped by a small, off-white head. Malty, meaty nose with some oxidation hints and a hint of piney hops. Sweet, malty flavor with some hops giving a little bitterness. Medium body. Some metal hints in the otherwise mostly bitter and fruity finish. Not my favorite indeed. 100814
