Cask: Dark copper in colour. Mildly malty, earthy hops. Another boring bitter unfortunately. johninmelb (1127) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2006
Draught. Nose is raisins and malt. Slightly cloudy with a fluffy head. Mouthfeel is smooth with a balance of buttery malt and sharp yeast in the flavour. Steady bitter finish. CampbellWilson (533) - SCOTLAND - DEC 31, 2005
Cask from Bon Accord. Amber with peststant off white head. Slightly vinous aroma, got that Burton sulphury thing going on in the background, with some fruity malt. Good body, with a lasting minerally finish. I’m not a huge fan of Marston’s, these days, but this was interesting stuff. iammadeofjelly (194) - Liverpool, Merseyside, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2005
They’ve done this beer again this christmas, a warming alcohol percentage to be had on a cold day, certain to let you leave the pub with a rosey nose. Has a christmassy taste. SilkTork (5778) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2005
Leather Bottle, Cobham. The first beer of 2005. Chrissie and I like to have a long walk on the first day of the year. Starting and finishing at a decent pub. One of our favourite walks is from the charming Leather Bottle in Cobham, an old coaching inn popular with Charles Dickens. This beer was a pleasure to start the walk, and was something to look forward to at the end of the walk. It’s a winter warmer - a sort of weak barley wine. Warming, pleasant and slightly spicy. Yummy.
