Cask Half Pint at White Horse Old Ale Festival 2009, Parsons Green, London in Nov 2009 - Orange Amber in colour. Hazy. Vinous. Fruity; citrus-orange. Malty; sweet malts, caramel. Very very sweet malty with slightly bitter hop edge. Dry finish. Far too sweet. Not for me. Didnt like it. (2009-11)

Pours pale amber, cloudy, frothy cream head. Aroma is citrus and pale fruits, bread, herbaceous. Taste is medium-strong bitter, a slight touch of sweetness. Medium-full body and quite a heavy feel, bit powdery.

RichardGretton (4739) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2015
Bottle. Amber orangey beer with a strong head. The aroma is yeasty with some fruitiness, and the flavour is burntly bitter with a fortified spirit undertone. Overall an average strong beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

gegwilson (3627) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2015
Bottle from Rehills of Jesmond. Pours hazy golden with a fothy cream head. Aroma of lemony cirus, caramel and bread. The taste is sharp citrus at first before spice with bready yeast notes. At first this felt pretty rough around the edge with a bit of a home brew vibe, but as it went down I enjoyed it more with some clove and banana notes coming through. OK

330ml bottle from Fire & Ice, Narberth. Pours a golden amber. Sweet malt aroma. Taste is bright crisp farmhouse spice with a boozy rich hop profile, like a cross between a Saison and a Barley Wine.

TimE (5608) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 9, 2013
med amber color. Big earthy nose with crystal malts and pine sticking up. The mouth show tons of earthiness, woodiness some what austere and hops back up the big malt with orange, apples and apricots showing up. Full bodied. Definitely English. Very interesting. The more i drank the more i groved on this
