UPDATED: AUG 10, 2015 Copper colour. Rich caramel and hoppy aroma. Deceptively strong. Very drinkable. Nice bitter taste at end on palate. Hazy appearance. niquillis (2752) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 29, 2015
Cask at Arnold Machin (JDW), Newcastle under Lyme. Pours mud brown with off white head. Sour prune, hint of vinegar. Not sure how long this beer has been doing the ’spoons rounds but recent comments suggest a while. Yuk.

Cask at the Hounslow JDW, amber-brown with a very light haze and a lasting off-white head. Slightly tart nose, still malty with toffee and a touch of toasted bread, but the cask’s *just* on the turn, I fear. GuideDogSaint (1811) - Xiamen, CHINA - JUL 19, 2015
