It’s a warm golden beer with a nice head. The aroma has notes of caramel, a bit of aroma hops and isn’t very strong. The flavour has notes of fruit, a lot of apples, and a rather dry and moderate bitterness. DruncanVeasey (8283) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2006
500ml Bottle. Bright gold, lagery-hued body topped with creamy suds. Fruity, toffeeish nose. Tangy orange fruitiness, mellow soapy bitterness, a touch of biscuit in the nostrils. Tasty stuff. DJMonarch (9179) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAR 5, 2006

Quite a heavy bitter.Dark apperance and quite fruity with a lingering bitterness.Stands out from the crowd. TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 13, 2005
Poured from the bottle, a light orange/brown with a frothy head. Aroma is quite malty. A sharp malty taste, a little watery though. Also quite carbonated in the mouth.

UPDATED: JUL 11, 2005 Bottle bought at Castle Howard. Toffee sweet with a bit too much fizz. Tastes better when artificial fizz has died down. A boiled sweet tastes takes away some pleasure. I wish mine had been more like the earthy one that Oakes enjoyed. I assume that was a cask version. Garrat (1347) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2005
From A Bottle.Dark amber in colour with a small head,aroma is of light malt and fruit,
taste is malty and fruity with a good dry bitter finish. rauchbier (3933) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JAN 2, 2003
Bottled. Copper coloured, initial head drops straight off and moderate condition does little to help. Low aromas of caramel and hops, but hops develop nicely in the mouth along with some toffee. Finish is dry and hoppy. Nice undemanding session beer.
