elnadeau (786) - Laguna Niguel, California, USA - MAR 8, 2005
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. Wetherspoon beer fest - kirky puffer (may 05)

Cask at GBBF 2006. A red-brown beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet malty with primary notes of caramel, but also with light roasted notes. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of caramel, and a light acidity. The mouthfeel is cask flat.

ianwelby (1212) - SCOTLAND - NOV 12, 2012
A clear red pint with a thick, lasting and red-tinged head. A sweet aroma and a similarly fruity taste with a hint of spice (ginger, perhaps?) I found it to be a little bit sickly.
