look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

500ml bottle bought from Sainsburys as part of an "Autumn Beer Festival" four pack...

Poured a light coppery chestnut colour. Creamy head poured pretty big, thick and foamy then faded to a decent thick, pock marked coating... some light wispy lacing.. very little carbonation...

Aroma - Lightly toasted caramel maltiness, some treacle / brown sugar notes, nice sweet nuttiness - hints of hazelnut and almond, faint smoky traces, some fig and dates fruitiness, alcohol is just noticable, light spicy / peppery hops, quite earthy, toasted bread...

Taste – Peppery hop bitterness mixed with toasted caramel maltiness, definite sweet and lightly toasted nuttiness, some herbal notes, light vegetal hints, some woody and earthiness, light watered down fruits (raisins, bitter oranges, some figs), some buttery traces..

Feel - Pretty rich and smooth.. medium bodied.. a pretty sessionable brew at 4.8%..

Overall - Another tasty drop from Fullers... a nice warming Autumnal beer drunk during a very Autumnal like summer... recommended...

Tried the bottled version tonight. It comes in a pack of four, Fuller's "Autumn Beer Festival" selection, along with three other beers: Organic Honey Dew, Red Fox, and London Porter. BB 21/10/2007, served cool in a straight imperial pint glass.

A: deep dark amber in colour, topped with a creamy off-white froth that lasts well; gentle but constant flows of tiny bubbles in action.
S: notes of sweet caramel, toffee, raisins, dried blackcurrents, young ruby port, sweet black tea leaves all come in one sniff~~ very well-mixed and featuring crystal malts and sour-sweet dried fruits, but slightly one dimensional in terms of complexity.
T: just like the smell, but better in structure and more subtle in composition--dried stone-fruitiness leads the way, slightly sour but also sticky-sweet; then the caramely malt flavour reveals in a most subtle manner, ensued by a quietly expanding woody/tea-leafy bitterness as of Fuggles that lends some more length as well as spiciness to the malty theme. Soothing aftertaste of walnutty and hop bitterness along with a little burnt, dryish palate and a lingering, sour-sweet echo of raisins.
M&D: compared with the cask version that I tried before, the texture is certainly more fizzy and slightly drags down the performance, but never to the point of offsetting the flavour. Medium-bodied, Winter Warmer-type bitter this is, with a more subtle and balanced flavour profile to offer than the sweet nose suggests. Worth a try!

500ml bottle

Pours with a rich copper body with some nice varied hints of amber. Thick patchy foamy white head with good retention and plenty of lacing down the glass

Smell, sweet casky malt, some fragrant english aroma hops off in the distance. Sweet toffee and caramel aromas, along with a whiff of bready alcohol

Taste, thick rich malty body with a very crisp mouthfeel. Syrupy sticky sugar and caramel, crisp biscuity finish. Some slight hop bitterness left on the palette

Very cask like and very drinkable. Another solid beer from Fullers
