Pours amber with a large white head. Vanilla, caramel, cheery, and oak aromas. Sweet malty flavors with vanilla, bourbon, oak, caramel, and cherry notes. Easy drinker with a high level of carbonation and a sweet lingering aftertaste.

FatPhil (15975) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 28, 2012
Cask (Live & Let Live, Cambridge)
7 Sweet dusty walnuts.
3+ Rich orange, simple loose head
7 Lovely sweet malty body. Gently hinting at husks and nuts, but also showing just a little hoppy bitterness too.
4- Smooth palate. Simple malty finish, kinda "beery".
14 Nice graininess, and the touch of husks makes it feel nicely old-school amongst bitters.

Warning! Early amateur rating! On tap at the Sun Inn, Kelvedon. Fruity and slighty bitter ale. Mild carbonation. Slips down easy enough.
