Befuddled by the ruddle---where has it been all these years? Honey colored with nice light head. Nose is sweet with a slightly off balanced spiciness. The flavor is equally sweet with notes of nuts, caramel, and fruit, combined with a woody farm ruggediness Really good balance. Dry finish. I get this beer! The perfect counter part to the Guiness extra stout. A smart combination that sustains and it comes in a convenient pratical can...

Don´t let the bottles prevent you from buying this amber/copper coloured, really bitter ale. It´s sold in big plasic PET bottles or in transparant "milkbottles" with a 2 inch neck ! It´s what´s inside that matters. This is as close to an English countryside pub you get without travelling, unless you´re English. A big hoppy nose, with a malty dry continuation that ends with a whole bouquet of hops. dwyerpg (6378) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAY 28, 2005
It took me awhile to buy this because I always thought it looked like tea. Wow, this is nice. Velvety smooth, hoppy yet not scratchy, with a perfectly balanced head. Excellent poured or straght out of the bottle Ingevara (910) - SWEDEN - AUG 26, 2002
Aaahh…! This one has it all. Hops and malt, sugar and bitter, depth and freshness. It lingers, restore and vitalize. A favourite. DrBeer (862) - Solna Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 31, 2005
Copper colour with decent white head.
Fruity aroma with syrup and fudge notes. A bit creamy.
Malty flavor with notes of bread, licorice and cream. Huge bitterness if you get a fresh bottle. One of my all time favorites. A true classic english bitter. oh6gdx (26487) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAR 13, 2005
Bottled. Dark copper coloured with white foamy head, which disappears quickly. Hoppy nose with fruitish hints. Very wellbalanced taste, mainly of fruits, but also bitterness. Mouthdrying effect, but still very fresh mouthfeel.
