13th July 2010. Chelmsford Beer Festival. Clear amber beer with a little suddy white head. Some sulfur on the nose! Light semi dry palate. Fresh dry fruit with some toffee malt. Tastes okay but the nose is very offputting!

This is awful cant stand these complex heavy tasting ales. There is flavours of caramel and a dark roasted nutty flavour but it feels old and stale. nasty.

johndoughty (5230) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 21, 2009
Bottle. Clear golden appearance and quite heavily pasteurized which seems to have taken away any trace of a taste. Slightly burnt flavour but no other identifiable taste.Think after 200 years they could have done better than this.
