Cask at Wellington, Birmingham
Dark mahogany color, beautiful with its red shades. The aroma shows a suspicious light trace of apples. The flavor has some quite good dark caramel and roasted malts, with traces of apples too, and correct bitterness. I wonder about the bitterness, but its a pretty good Bitter.

tombyars (1662) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - MAR 11, 2012
First tasted this in Gabriels, Paisley in March 1997. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear copper in colour with a thin creamy white head. Hint of sweet caramel in the short aroma. Thin but creamy mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malts give a robust maltloaf base with ginger bread notes. Strong caramel and raisin fruit very much in evidence. Strong earthy hop prickle noted in the long aftertaste. Finish is smooth and malty with raisins and orange peel full in the booming mouth. A decent session bitter and recommended.

Recently had two poor Titanic beers, this my 11th one of theres this year and what a quality ale. Had on cask at Cask Bar in Manchester, after Rochefort 8 it was a tough ask, but this was superb. Strong Walnutty/coffee nose, taste of roast, chocolate, bit of lemon. Chestnut coloured ale, very impressed indeed, definitely not what I expected.

DruncanVeasey (8217) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2011
Cask handpull, The Shoes, Nuneaton, 14/05/11. Chestunt with a level beige top. Slick condition; cherry and apple Chewits dominate; hay and cocoa hints, astringent afters. Fake apple and burnt wood aroma. Trace of bile and copper. What a frustating brewery.
