Bottle pours coppery amber with light beige full head that laces. Aroma is rich, caramel,dark fruit maybe a hint of yeast. Fruity sweet start with a counterbalance light bitterness to finish and linger. Some pleasant alcohol warmth . Full palate. Medium carbonation. A good beer. Beesbeer (452) - WALES - JAN 20, 2013
It has to be the quality of the water filtered down through sandstone that gives this beer such a great crystal clean flavour. Chocolate bitter sweetness and barley wine warmth and depth. Quite a sharp green hop citrus ending that lingers on the palate. Quick to make you squiffy!

Pours like a brewed ice tea, complete with tea-ish head.
Scent is caramel, pepper, dark fruit.
Taste is very bready and dry...
Sweet front, bitter back.
A very good ale.

Cask in a pub opposite Exeter Cathedral whose name I forget. Full-bodied for the style and quite sweet, with hints of bread, raisin and orange coming through. Nice bitter. ManVsBeer (10795) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 10, 2012
Copper-brown in colour with a strong aftertaste, although the strength is hidden somewhat by the fruity sweet flavours which are also evident in its aroma. AshtonMcCobb (6771) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 26, 2012
50cl bottle. Pours a lovely amber with gentle bubbles and a nicely proportioned head some of which remains. The nose has raisins and flour. The taste has flour and toffee this time and chocolate biscuits on the finish. The palate is rich but very tight, then a compact middle section which continues into a long dry finish. Overall, a nice strong bitter.

Bottled 06/05/12. A russet coloured beer with an off-white ring of head. A fruity aroma with sweet and slightly sugary notes. Predominantly malty but the hops are there too and give good fruitiness. A nice long finish. Boozy and tasty.8 kermis (14191) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - APR 19, 2012
Cask at Walsall Beer festival. Amber orange pour with a small white head. Fruit and malt in the aroma And flavor with a little alcohol.
