Cask. Lovely lace on a hazy red body. Quite a big, powerful aroma. Fruity and rather intense. Lots of dates. Also prune--maybe prune schnapps. Touch phenolic. Body is nice. Lots of prune again. Finishing dry with a big of alcohol on the tongue. Fruit cake with the bitterness of fruit skins. paintyouup824 (13) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 30, 2010
This one had me scratching my head a bit, as when I first poured it, the aroma was not too much in your face but was there with sweet oak hint. A beautiful copper red color with a very small white fully diminishing head on this one. I really enjoyed the flavor however, with an initial sweet nutty caramel start finishing with a fruity sweet taste that was quick and did not linger on the palate. Very little bitterness to this beer and was quite refreshing and relaxing. It had a watery texture with medium body. I really enjoyed the taste of this beer, and it is unfortunate that the aroma really was a bit of a let down. Maybe it was my particular beer, but with a strong prevalent aroma this beer would be up on my list. Vignale (4118) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 7, 2011
Inköpt i England och drucken med ölföreningen. En bra ESB med karamellkaraktär som balanseras av en frisk och fruktig humle med bra bett i beskan. AshtonMcCobb (7027) - 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.

Half-pint at the 2014 Lincoln Beer Festival. Good looking dark, deep brown beer with a full white crown on top. Malty from the start, this is a fruity, wholesome brew that oozes flavour. The hops keep the maltiness in check to produce a lovely blend that is easy to drink, mildly bitter towards the finish.

From the cask at Reading Beer Festival 2016. Complex, malty and clean, and tasty and well rounded beer. Otter have gone up in my estimation. Garrat (1347) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2004

Bottled. Hazy orange. Butterscotch, grass and toffee dominates. Sweet with soft maltiness, notes of honey and some licorice. Bitter finish. Solid. Spiesy (2337) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - JUL 12, 2004
Bottled. Deep, honey amber coloured body with soft, fine head. Malt and vanilla aroma, generously lifts of the top. Lovely vanilla and malt flavour buttressed by good bitterness and succulent mature hop backbone. Quite enjoyed this little guy. CampbellWilson (533) - SCOTLAND - NOV 28, 2005
Bottle from Sainsbury’s. Not obviously bottle conditioned, I couldn’t see sediment, but no obvious pasteurisation notes either. Dark amberwith dissipating head. Aroma of caramel, orangey hop, liquorice. Good body, complex finish with hop and liquopricy, choclatey malt.
