A lovely clear copper looking beer. Very malty and got some umph. A good solid 3.5 out of 4, a cracker for real ale drinkers. 17Beer (343) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 29, 2017
Malty leather smells. Pours a rich brown orange with a big quickly dissipating off white head. A lot of fine lacing. Great tastes of caramel and leather. A soft sour finish. Really distinctive and nice. NallePalle (633) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAY 22, 2017
Bottle, 50 cl, Tesco Extra, Slough. Delicious ale, warming and well balanced.

500ml bottle. Molasses, raisins, biscuit, caramel. Great mouthfeel. Recommended. Davros IX (334) - Hertford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2017
2016 catch up - I got the temperature just right and the flavour was excellent. Malt, oak and a very nice level of bitterness. The alcohol was well hidden and there was a very nice mouthfeel. I like this a lot. efeesse (541) - Praha, CZECH REPUBLIC - APR 30, 2017
Beer with gold\copper color, light body, medium bitterness, malty flavor, good volume of foam, average carbonized, (bought a 50cl bottle in Tesco supermarket @ OC Eden, Praha, CZ). kalkone (23) - BELGIUM - MAR 4, 2017
Déçu car marqué vieilli donc je m’attendais a quelque chose de plus fort en goût. Onesimus (82) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - FEB 3, 2017
Mahogany body light beige head
Restrained malty herbal nose.
Herbal bitterness is balanced with hints of caramel. It is distinctive but I can't say what it is.
