Nice ruby red that is bit hazy, great full creamy head bout one finger stays long.Looks inviting. Sweet malty aroma has bit nuts and wood, caramel, maöty dark bread. Full and creamy palate like velvet (real ale), soft carbonation, sweet, long tasty finish. Tasty and soft, good flavors. chriso (7533) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2005
Striking ruby colour. Aroma is fruity and herbal, with some dark malt, licorice, chocolate and a vinous edge. A hint of sweetness early on the palate, becoming woody and relatively dry. More licorice and medicinal notes. Slightly sharp finish. Lasting dry, bitter aftertaste. Tending towards an old ale in style. Quite impressive. Bright bottled from cask (gravity dispense) at Chelmsford Beer Festival.

Dark ruby color, small beige head. Nutty, caramelly aroma. Medium bodied. Flavor is caramelly, some licorice (cough syrup) candies, nuts and then light spicey bitterness in the finish. Very English ESB-like beer, not very Christmasy, but pleasant.
Cask conditioned at The Woolpack, Banbury. Chestnut to ruby with slight white head. Fruity, nutty beer that shows its alcohol in a burning medicinal way. Malty with hints of aniseed, moving to sweet on the close. A more challenging beer. duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 19, 2004

Evening Star, Brighton. Light green apple, with some toffee, caramel, and some subtle clovey spice, quite smooth and innofensive.
Cask, handpump at the Woolpack, Banbury, Oxon 20-12-08 Pours dark brown with white head. Malty, fruity beer, touch of sourness, drinks quite well for the abv. Little bit sweet and can become a little tiresome after a while. A5 A4 F6 P3 OV12 3.1 Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - MAR 1, 2005

Thin off-white head, dark brown body. Fruit, grass and some toffee in the aroma. Fruity and malty flavor. Dry and rather thin bodied. Fresh but really nothing special.
Cask-conditioned at the Bag ONails, Bristol 22/12/08. Chestnut coloured with a frothy off-white head. Candied fruit, caramel and marzipan aroma. Flavour was similarly sweet, with plenty of toffee and a contrasting earthy hop finish. Ok. VastActiv (6942) - Oulu/Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 1, 2016
