SilkTork (5690) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - SEP 19, 2002
Not as famous nor as well balanced as Old Peculiar or Old Speckled Hen, this is none the less a decent quality old style beer.

skortila (5662) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - OCT 10, 2004
Aroma of caramel malts and raisins. Not too good.. Hazy, brown coloured with a thin, lasting brownish head. Taste is sweet-caramel, malty, sugar and fruits. More bitterness towards the finish. Smooth palate. Quite okay. Typical english ale.

Cybercat (5556) - Georgia, USA - JAN 17, 2016
Pours opaque chestnut with a fair buff head. Malty and fruity aroma invites a taste. Fruity, malty, caramel flavor is quite pleasing. Mouthfeel presents firm body and good fizz. Rodger dodger, a good one.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 20, 2002
Sweet, oaty start, dry-ish hoppyness towards the finish, some light peaty and smokey flavours, and a bit of oak, some mollasses in there aswell, not real elegant, but not too bad either. Not overly complex, but it occasionally surprised me on the odd sip.

Marko (5403) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 28, 2011
Since Iím stuck on this ferry for the next 5 hours might as well rate stuff I normally wouldnít even consider round these parts. Cola body, medium tan head. Fruity, slightly soapy malty nose, nice really. Slightly polleny and candyish. Light dull malty taste, the nice fruity (vague strawberry jam?) soapiness shows up again but the palate is thin and dry. Some light alcohol pops up... To be continued as it warms... Umm yeah. The tartness gets stronger and the alcohol too, though not terribly so. Gets slightly salty though. Dunno, hardly exciting but one can do far worse.
