madmitch76 (26366) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2010
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!

omhper (25943) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 10, 2006
[Cask at GBBF] Brownish amber. Nutty and roasty nose. Sweetand medium bodied. Distinct nutty malt flavoured covered with resiny hops. Almost woody finish.

harrisoni (19534) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2006
Cask at GBBF 2006. Hazy amber. Little bit of weird yeast on teh aroma. Bit of fruit in mouth. Some dryness on end. Odd. Very drinkable and you can see that you would drink a lot of it even at 5%

FatPhil (17334) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 15, 2010
Cask (GBBF2010)
6 Sweet malty aroma
3 Deep orange, small head
6 Pear drops, very estery and a bit chemical.
3 Soft palate, carbonation low. Apple flaws in the finish.
10 This went wrong somewhere before reaching the glass.

Scopey (16225) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2013
Cask at The Claret. It pours deep amber with a small white head. The nose is earth, light spice, wood and leather. The taste is caramel, wood, butterscotch, berry, earth, leather and some alcohol warmth with a dry finish. Medium body, soft carbonation and viscous mouth-feel. A decent ESB.
