Cask (gravity dispense). Beer #14 at Bedford Beer Festival 2005. A copper coloured beer with the emphasis on nutty malt. Some smoky notes and lots of toffee. Powerful fruity malt flavour, with caramel and some chocolate nuances. Reminded me of Caramac chocolate bar (do they still make that). Well made to the style. I just prefer a touch more bitterness to balance things out.

imdownthepub (14557) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 11, 2008
Cask conditioned at Banbury Beer Fest ’08. Copper gold with white head. Full with a strong alcohol note, heavy body with a slight roasted background. There is a dry fruitiness, almost apricot in the beer, as is usual with Milton beers, really well brewed to deliver the hop notes which were dry and spicy. Not bad at all.

Copper, quite clean. Dark peach. Good mouth feel, but short aftertaste. It’s okay. (Pint shared at Haymakers pub)

Chelmsford Beer Festival. Cask. Light haze on this gold beer, a few pale cream colour bubbles. Palate is light and smooth, modest fine carbonation. Smooth sweetish malts, a touch of honey. Mild marmalade and a little lemon. Some sweet floralness. Light spice. Light dry finish. A dry but pretty drinkable golden. This ain’t an English Strong.
