Mahagóni vörös színe van, ami tükrösen tiszta. Habja sárgás színű, vékony és krémes. Illata almaecetes, gyümölcsös és vajsavas. Fanyar íze van, ami kissé fás, égetett cukros, zöld almás és pörkölt magvas, rozskenyeres. Könnyű teste van és alig található benne buborék. Utóíze gyümölcsösen fanyar és kiszárítja az egész szánkat. Érdekes egy ale, szerintem ilyenek lehettek a régi idők pubjainak, átlagos italai. armando629 (2456) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 16, 2011
0,5 l bottle, Tesco, south Tottenham, Greater London.BeerViking (5125) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2011
Reddish mahagony colour, creamy-lacing white head. Aroma of caramel, sourish apple, lactic acid, light caramel. Easy bodied one, some apple, some caramel, light woody taste, toasted character, moderated hops in the finish with an easy candy sugar.
UPDATED: NOV 26, 2015 Red-brown with fast-settling head, slightly sweet malt aromas, crisp and balanced on the palate with a little nuttiness, but also with a faint metallic tang, perhaps from being bottled in clear glass. Re-rate, still a little sweet but this time hoppy and lightly roasty, with notes of toasted malt and a pleasing wintery edge. Martin243 (1245) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2011
Looking at recent rates, this seems to divide people: while I wouldn’t go overboard, I like it. Nothing outstanding, smooth caramel flavours, easy to drink, unpretentious. A beer to "settle" for? CalumScotland (182) - Hamilton, SCOTLAND - JUL 11, 2011
Not as nice as other ales for same price so wouldent buy again waste of money

One of the better beers I’ve had out of a bottle. Fairly drinkable. Unfortunately the thick head disappears quickly. Chestnutty flavour. Nice gentle, bitter finish to it. I could drink more than one of these and be happy. tommann (4022) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 4, 2011
500ml bottle. Pours a dark caramel with no head. Aroma is skunk, boiled sweets, caramel and vanilla. Taste has some raisin to start with caramel on the finish with some grass. Leighton (22773) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2011
Bottle at home in London with Lyoli. Pours rich chestnut with a small, foamy white head. Holds a rich toffee aroma with doughy malts and distant, ripe fruits. Light to medium sweet, with toasted biscuits and earthy, leafy and slightly herbal bitterness. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Finishes dryly with notes of burnt candy, toast and some herbal, earthy hops. Pretty nice. DruncanVeasey (8401) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUN 21, 2011
Bottle from my local offie. Shining bronze with lazing carbonation and fine magnolia drum of head. Surprisingly some Shep-like hop aroma has survived the clear bottle treatment; sherbet, jellied orange and flowering shrub..with some less savoury, buttery, uncooked turkey notes lurking in the background. Brittle, berry-flavoured soda taste with instant coffee and liquorice Allsort hints. Drinkable- if split with the missus.
