Cask Conditioned at Charlie’s Pub, Copenhagenharrisoni (19186) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2007
Dark amber to brown color, clean. Simple aroma. Fresh taste, with some malt, caramel, sweetness if possible. Ends with a vague earthy hopping, but the bitterness is strong enough and lasting. Pleasant.
Cask handpull at Richard John Blackler, JDW, Liverpool. Amber/copper colour with lasting beige head. Served too cold. Yeast, and some hop aroma. Very earthy, bit of Burton style yeast aroma. Fair juiciness in mouth. Dry earthy finish. Bit of citrus tingle. Not mad on the eggy aroma. Rest of beer is ok though, bit of lemon on finish.

A Sim rate (on tap at The Gatehouse, JDW): Subtle cherry aroma with some red grapes. Brown, murky red colour but zero head or lace. Tastes like slightly bitter cherry juice. Delicate fruity finish.

Cask conditioned at The Back of Beyond, Reading (JDW). Dark reddish brown with a small cream head. I too expected this to be a "winter warmer" type beer, rather than a Valentine’s special. Rather lacking in aroma; rather hollow in the mouth, quite malty, but something seemed to be missing; slighty sweet to finish. Mungo (2470) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2007

Humble Plumb, Soton. It didnt click at first that this was meant to be a Valentines day special, the clip with roaring flames could have been for many winter warmers. Perhaps the name and the fact it was a day or two after the 14th should have made it click.Reddish brown colour. Mild roast and abundant toffee. Fruity sweetness in mouth with roastiness fading. Not bad but becomes slightly sweet in the finish.
