Martyn (15) - Greater London, - DEC 7, 2007
A beautiful bright amber appearance with a lovely fruity nose. An initial red berry fruit flavour is followed by a butterscotch middle and a superb long caramel malt finish balanced out with a nice hop background. A great traditiional british ale with a great appearance and branding. Lets get some younger people drinking cask ales!!

Perpignan73 (40) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2016
Bottle chilled and poured at home. Clear amber with lasting, creamy white head; nose of malts, caramel, fruit, grass; zingy light bitterness on the toungue, giving way to fruits possibly orange with a sweetish caramel finish. Has a great balance bewteen caramel and punchy fruit flavours, which many red/amber ales fail to achieve. At the time of review only 5am Saint is a better representation of the style.

Idiosynkrasie (7093) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - OCT 7, 2016
500ml bottle. Clear, amber colour with average, thick, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Floral hoppy aroma, slightly nuttily, mellow malty background. Taste is floral and slightly fruity hoppy, minimally doughy malty, a touch of gooseberry and red berries, unripe peach; dry hoppy finish, almost lively, but fine and gentle carbonation. Very nice..
