Parmenion777 (257) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 4, 2017
UPDATED: MAR 4, 2017 Pours a clear red brown colour with a small beige head. Bready malt, and caramel aroma. A similar bready malt taste, some light caramel sweetness and berry fruit flavours. A moderate herby bitter finish.

Leighton (20800) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 21, 2016
Cask at the Green Man, JDW - London. Pours clear honey-gold with a frothy, white head. The aroma holds some toasted malts, brown bread and light caramel. Light to medium sweet flavour with notes of graham crackers, toffee, more brown bread, ripe berries. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. OK balance in the finish, with more toasty bread, minimal bitterness, ripening fruits. Enjoyable.

BeerViking (4606) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2016
Cask at the Michael Balcon, deep red-brown with a lasting fine beige head, nose is sweetish malt and dry wormwood, rich and lightly bready, more malt, a little toffee, a woody undertone, and a lasting bitter herbal note. Intriguing.

Cask HP at Hamilton Hall London as Woods Wonderful. Dark amber orange, clear and still with minimal head. Aroma is toffee and honey, bready sugars. Body is smooth with lowish carbonation. Taste is bready, honey, lightest touch of resin dryness. A pretty pleasant sweet and malty ale.

Towey1989 (2560) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2015
Cask at The Holy Inadequate, Etruria. A clear amber colour with a medium white head. Aroma of sweaty malt, soft toffee, some yeast, slight apple and subtle diacetyl. Taste of toffee, some yeast, slight bread, a little apple, fruity malt and subtle diacetyl again. Medium bodied and soft carbonation. A soft, fruity bitterness in the finish. This beer grew on me but overall its a below average, malty ale with unappealing apple and diacetyl tones.

BlackHaddock (7078) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 9, 2014
Really pleased to see this, an old friend from many years ago: 6th Nov 2014, hand-pulled half-pint at the 24th Shrewsbury CAMRA Beer Festival. Copper with darker ruby hint, wispy head on this pour. Aroma is toffee apple like, as is the taste, both of which have a fruity semi-sweet feel to them. Medium bodied and very easy to drink.

UPDATED: NOV 15, 2016 Nice one. Copper colour. Caramel and toffee flavours with berries and interesting woody hints. . Lightly bready. Very nice on palate. Will drink again and rate again. Yes raised several points on second pint. Really excellent. Good strength. Also apple and fruity tones in taste.
