A Mes rate: Cask at Baker Street ’Sporks.harrisoni (19165) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 7, 2008
Dark amber with a thin white head. Caramel and fruit aroma with a slight buttery note. Odd caramel and crème brûlée flavour with a little more diacetyl. Harsh wheaty notes. Liquorice and malt finish. Next.
Cask handpull at County Hotel, JDW, Ashford. Attractive amber colour with lasting dark beigehead. Slightly coffee caramel aroma and flavour. Good nick. Fullish in mouth with raisins/sultana fruit mixing with fullish malts and slight creamy coffee to give a fruit cake feel. Very good deep full bitter. Decent hoppy sting on finish. Not really my style, but I still give it a good score for the flavour. bobinlondon (1297) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 30, 2008

Light reddy brown, loose head. Dry dusty hoppy aroma. Slightly over-ripe fruity aroma, almost pungent. Thick mashy grainy taste, also sweet and fruity. Soft palate. Overall quite pleasant, but nothing excels.
