AlenomoreExceptional26 Oct 2012 This was put on by our host quite late. Another superb, amazingly good, well hopped type. A genuine 5* ale. I first sampled this at the Bhurtpore Inn, Wrenbury, in 2005.

Euston Tap, Euston, Central London

Stephen HarrisExcellent31 Jan 2012 Described on the pub blackboard as a Red Ale, but drinks more like a dark, fruity bitter. Very deep red in colour, rich and fruity, with a dry finish.

RayGood22 Oct 2010 Very dark almost black beer with surprising burst of autumn fruits in the mouth. Short satisfying finish.

Battersea Beer Festival 2006, Battersea, Greater London

IanGood09 Feb 2006 I think this was my highest rated UK beer of the festival and it wasn’t even on the list!!! Chestnut colour with thin beige head. Lovely aroma, nutty/dates/fruit and deep malt. Good malts in mouth. Drying finish. In fact my notes say, Best UK beer so far. Soft in mouth with a salty bitterness.
