275 ml bottle, unfortunately served far too cold at The Marquess of Anglesey, London. Amber colour, moderate head. Sweet alcoholic (despite ABV only 5%) candylike aroma. Flavour is a bit sweet with hints of nuts and cherries. Not my favourite this one.

The only problem with this beer is getting hold of it.
The only place I could see to buy it was direct from Marston's.
A lovely beer especially mixed with Young's London Special.

Another copper pour, white head 3/4" deep. Cool ruby edge to it. Nose was mildly fruity, earthy malt and hops.

A light sweetness, a good amount of noble hop flavor contributions. Highly carbonated, appropriate. Caramel and wood malt flavors, tea.

Neither super strong nor bitter, this one doesn't need to be compared to its claims on the label, its decent, but the format and price per oz keep it from being a repeat purchase.

Drank on cask served via handpump at the Salisbury just of Oxford road in Manchester
Hazy deep copper, decent head. Earthy caramel, hints of spicy honey, still reasonably dry. Got something special.
