Still a nice ale, but I have a long memory of when I first tried it, from a counter mounted wooden cask, at the Norfolk Arms in Arundel, in 1976.
Then, it was a more powerful brew at 6.3% with a little more body.
First taste, I was hooked! Westchesterco (2274) - mclean, Virginia, USA - DEC 18, 2017

From a bottle. Pours a clear cola with a thin tan head. Aroma of toffee and caramel. Flavors are moderately sweet pit fruits and banana. Light bodied but pretty tasty. p0urmeac0ld0ne (413) - Merthyr Tydfil, WALES - DEC 18, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2017 Rating from a historical source, where I gave it a fairly high 4/5. The little memory of this that I do have is that it was a lovely dark beer. Will have to try it again some day to confirm. Piepenhenrich (1288) - Steinbach, GERMANY - DEC 7, 2017
Pours dark brown with a beige head. Intense roasted malt flavors combine with a pleasant bitterness to provide for an enjoyable drinking experience. Decent brew!

Bottle @ home. Nice deep dark red to amber-brown color, small to average sized beige head. Smell and taste malts, lightly dark malts, raisins, caramel. Decent body and carbonation. Decent beer. gilgameshcup (1) - - DEC 3, 2017 does not count
A complex mixture of fruit and bread. At first reminds of raisins and apples, but the after taste is a very soft bread flavour. Sweet and slightly bitter. For me, it is slightly too sticky. Carbonation gives it a small edge. Hopverdju (1644) - BELGIUM - DEC 1, 2017
