Cask-conditioned at the Hobgoblin, Bristol. Chestnut coloured with a decent off-white head that left plenty of lacing. Red fruit and sweet malt aroma. More fruit in the flavour before a decent bitter finish. Ok. DruncanVeasey (8226) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUN 1, 2008
The White Lion, Tamuff. Chestnut with a tight beige collar. Sulphur, caramel, slightly sourish stone fruit, a faint dusting of choc. Mellow, mild-like, dunkelish stillness. Alright, but a bit drab. Could use a richer or roastier depth of flavours. larsniclas (7075) - Billdal, SWEDEN - DEC 21, 2003

Draught at Goat Hill Tavern, Costa Mesa CA. Brown with a smallish head, faint malty aroma. Although a drinkable, mostly malt brew, not really much going on for this other than being rare to find on draught in So Cal. DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 14, 2005
UPDATED: APR 20, 2007 Quite an attractive pour, aroma of slightly burnt malt, no hops at all.
Taste was different like i cant figure out what it was, decent all the same, maybe a bit thin though. Malty, burntness, caramel maybe.
A decent session beer, good for wetherspoons anyway. Rerate: rubbish.
