Pint in Ad Lib, Glasgow (£3.60):ralphdot (1095) - Billingham, Durham, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2011
Bitter with an earthy malt aroma and some lighter fruit notes along with some caramel and a touch of burnt sugar. There is some apples and a few sweet malts too.
Toffee brown with a cream, thumb sized head on top that is white and holds pretty well.
Sweet malts and a very bitter taste kick things off along with a nutty taste and a touch of caramel from the nose. There is a fruity undertone with some bitterness towards the end.
Medium bodied and very cream with a nice, rounded bitter finish and a very smooth body. The balance in this one is quite nice too.
Bitter and a great example of the style with a great appearance and a nice balance throughout. There was some nice caramel malts and the hints of fruit were nice too.
4.0% dark brown colour with a good lasting head, fruity aroma, very nice smooth fruity but bitter taste, very good beer, now an all time favourite. mike5326 (1788) - virginia beach, Virginia, USA - MAY 16, 2016

Draught at Princess Louice, London
Deep golden with a creamy tan head.
Soft, smooth and slightly milky.
Some fruits and/or berries; raspberries(?). Shrews629 (193) - Kentucky, USA - JUL 17, 2010
Very nice semi-clear light amber to mostly orange color. Off-white color head. Not a real big head with an easy pour that settled to a nice ring. Getting the sweet fruity smelling grape juice hint. Slightly faint grapes however. Maybe even a touch of cranberry juice. Different, but kind of pleasing. A bit of sourness coming through on the nose also. I’m detecting the cranberry taste first. Just a small amount of bitterness at the back end. Slightly sour after it sets on the tongue for a second. Very well balanced. Medium to thin mouthfeel. Dry and crisp. Somewhat light, but not real watery. This is really a pretty good brew in my opinion. It’s different from most. I like the change of pace, however I don’t think I could make an evening of it.

On tap from keg at the white horse in soho. Medium chestnut amber and initially opaque with a lovely white, medium cream foam residing. Scent is light musky floral properties and lightly caramelised malt. Taste is medium bodied chestnut bitter with very creamy texture and some resin. Finish is clean. Great bitter.

On tap at Waterguard in Cardiff Bay, good tasting beer, but bitter aftertaste. Looks and smells good, just a slight bitterness to the aftertaste, without this it would be perfect. swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - AUG 1, 2012
Draft at Duke of Argyll. Soho, London. Light copper pour. Ligh aroma of caramel malts. Very drinkable but light flavor of caramel/sweet malts. Decent
