Bottle at home in London - sourced from Sainsburys way back when they did one of those beer promotions; this beer is BBE August 2013. So, pretty old. Pours a rather fetching amber-ruby with a creamy, khaki head. The aroma holds ripening berries, brown bread, fruit leather, plum. Medium sweet flavour with some hearty brown bread, more plums, dates, berries, faint earthy hops, strawberry. Medium to full bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly warming in the finish with a bit of sticky sugar, more ripe berries, some toffee, grapes, earth, leather, raisins. Overall, this is a pretty damn solid strong English ale. Nice work. evergreen0199 (3556) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 11, 2011
