A Sim Rate (Cask at Planet Thanet): Sweet and bitter caramel aroma. Slightly metallic. Morello cherriesin the aroma. Bitter dark chocolate flavour. It’s a bit like a Mon Cherie liqueur chocolates. OK, but not great. haddonsman (1234) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - APR 4, 2007

Half Man Half Biscuit once sang; "There is nothing better in life / than writing on the sole of your slipper with a biro / on a Saturday night / instead of going to the pub".
They were wrong.
There is nothing better in life than finding a great pub with great local beer in great condition. Old-satchel-brown body, a transient effervescing head, sweet and soft malts with some slight hazelnuttiness. Superb stuff.
On the cask in York. Deep brown, red highlights with a fading off-white head. Caramel upfront in the nose, with slight grapefruit and assorted citrus notes. Taste was predominantly sour, and slightly unpleasant, with a cloying acidic sweetness that came through slightly in grapefruit and dried fruit notes. Straw or grass hoppiness in the finish, but unrefined. Fin (11070) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2006
Cask handpump at the Crown, Charlton-on-Otmoor 25-11-06. Dark ruby in colour with a malty and dried fruit nose, malts dominate the flavour which is a touch sweet and little bit one dimensional, but nonetheless tasted good, and it was nice to see this in a GK pub.

Cask conditioned @ Humble Plumb, Soton. Nutty lightly roasted malts with hints of sweet chocolate and a slightly dry earthy finish. Quite pleasant but perhaps overly light and not quite assertive enough. Doppelganger (1389) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - SEP 25, 2006
Soapy white bubbles on a hazy orange pour. Fresh apricots, sweet apples, a little musk. Pleasant tartness, earthy, dried papaya, a solid brisk bitterness that lingers more in the front of the palate than in the throat. A nice farmy kind of ale. Unrefined, but with it’s own charm.
