Red and brown color. A little brownish head. Aroma from hops and a sweet taste. SilkTork (5726) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - NOV 19, 2003
Bottled. Pasteurised. This was drunk in two parts. I started it last night, and I was thoroughly enjoying it, when I fell ill. My last words as I staggered upstairs to the toilet were "Save that beer in the fridge for me." And now I'm finishing it off. Of course, the oxidised flavours of a pastuerised beer are more apparant the next day when all the fizz has gone, but the firm mouthfeel, and the sultana fruits and brown sugar are still there. I should imagine this would be excellent in the cask. larsniclas (7038) - Billdal, SWEDEN - OCT 26, 2003
Aroma from toffee and wood.
Soft, vinous palate.
Flavour from toffee and chocolate with a distinct alcoholfeel.

Red-brown color, a nice thick head. Aroma is fruity. Tastes of carmael, maybe some kind of fruity caramel. Some bitterness in the finish. A little different but a rather nice ale. imdownthepub (14448) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2003
Bottled, Pasteurised. Deep ruby red beer with close knit head. Malt and smooth wine flavours predominate, maybe a little apply cider characterisic. Autumn fruits come through. A well constructed beer but possibly no longer available? ante (3373) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 15, 2003
Amber coloured. Aroma is pretty fruity with some english hops. Taste: Very , very good, loads of flavours, some sweet malt with some alcoholic sweetnes with a very grassy and oily hop bitterness. Sweet vinous finish. Sigmund (7390) - Tau, NORWAY - JUL 7, 2003
(500 ml bottle). Ruby (rather: reddish brown) colour, very low head. Vinous aroma, full malty flavour, slightly alcoholic, good bitterness. Despite it being called a "table beer" (with robust foods) by the brewers, I would rather call it a typical "sipping beer". Recommended. rickgordon (3874) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 29, 2003
Amber color. White diminishing head. Hoppy caramel aroma. Caramel flavor. Notes of licorice in the flavor, truly malty.
