Case @ Young’s brewery tap. A dark ruby beer with a roast nose. The loose, ivory-coloured head didn’t last all that long. An initial roast malt hint is rapidly overwhelmed by the toffeeish sweetness, with a faint iodine tang developing in the aftertaste. KnutAlbert (6753) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 12, 2006
One of the seasonal ales from Youngs. Subtle taste - on the opposite end of the scale from the Special London Ale. A bit on the sweet side with a nice nutty finish. fonefan (49554) - VestJylland, DENMARK - AUG 8, 2006

Pint served at perfect room temperature at the Lamb, London. Filmy off-white layer over a mahogany coloued body. Nice lacing on the glass. Roasted malty aroma. Taste of warming caramel malts. Moderate bitter ending. A bit watery. Half of the content was enjoyed with Fish ’n Chips (31.01.2007).

Pint in London@pub, cross from eurostar station. Just returning from Paris on a cold winter day it is a great and welcome brew. But on its own merits i find it rather light and delicate. Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - MAR 1, 2007
Cask, Angel & Grayhound, Oxford. Caramel brown with a light tan head. Toffee and raisin aroma. Roast flavor, slight astringency, soft plums. Could use a bit more texture, but still a nice wintery sort of ale. joe19612 (2964) - camberley, Surrey, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2007

Cask at The White Hart, Overton- Dark brown in colour with red tinges. Malty aroma with caramel and toffee. Nutty, refreshing taste. Not as good as it used to be but still a good pint. downender (8687) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2008
Cask-conditioned at the Bristol Ram, Bristol. Chestnut coloured with a moderate off-white head. Caramel, malty aroma with some fruit in the background. Flavour was sweet, with toffee, nuts and a hint of roastiness. Good.
