COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask & bottle conditioned; Regular.
Our flagship Bitter pours a rich copper colour with a sweet malt taste and toffee notes. This is perfectly balanced with a mix of Chinook and Cascade hops providing a sharp bitterness, with a strong citrus and tropical fruit aroma and some slight spicy hints.

downender (6245) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 7, 2014
Cask-conditioned at the Seven Stars, Bristol 7/7/2014. Deep gold with a frothy, off-white head. Sweet, husky, cereals, a touch of citrus hop and moderately bitter finish. So so drinking.

BlackHaddock (3645) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 1, 2013
500ml Bottle conditioned: BBD Mar 2014, poured into a UK pint sleeve at home on 31 July 2013. Dull golden colour, with an off-white head. The nose and taste came across as hoppy, bitter, dry, slightly fruity (mixed), toast, some wood notes, with a mild grapefruit finish. Nothing took over the tasting: a pleasant enough blend, but lacked a bit of character and depth. The cask version might be better?

Beer4000 (4440) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 27, 2013
500 ml bottle sampled in 2008. Hazy golden body with an off-white head. Strong aroma of grapefruit, other fruits and bubblegum. Flavor has some caramel malt, fruit, something that feels almost chemical and moderate bitterness. Thin and watery body, aftertaste feels almost dead. Something might be wrong here but it’s not too obvious what it is.

Theydon_Bois (8327) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2013
Cask at the Bailiwick, Englefield Green, 17/02/13. Clear pale golden with a thin white head that clears to the edge. Nose carries pale malts, grass, orange, fruits. Taste comprises caramel malt, orange, straw, biscuit, toffee. Medium bodied with soft carbonation, light bitterness in the finish. Drinkable drop - NOT an APA !

Good creamy head initially but doesn't last. Smooth flavour, malty with some yeast prevalent, drinkable but fairly bland. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jmgreenuk (4258) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - AUG 25, 2012
Draft at the Row Barge, Guildford. I liked this beer! In common with other Ascot ales, it has little carbonation. The head was short lived and that disappeared with any lingering lace. A hint of malt in the fruity aroma and a citrus overtones in the flavour which made quite a refreshing change. Many people from across the pond would turn their noses up at this flat warm beer, so it's good that there's quite a few of us on this side of the world that appreciate this style of ale! One for a session no doubt! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

prawlie (1141) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2012
Pint at the Royal Oak in Bracknell. Orange and slightly opaque with a decent head that then disappears. Smells very hopped and a bit of pine. Not as good as remembered. Fruity, pine, dry and bitter, dried apricot? However sediment at the bottom of the glass so might be the end of the barrel.

Copper colour. Has an aroma and flavour close to that of over boiled carrots. It’s quite sweet but lacks further depth of flavour.

Leighton (10781) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2011
Cask at The Euston Tap, London. Pours a clear, rich gold with a small, white head. Some nice, zesty citrus on the nose, with a bit of toast and hay. Light to medium sweet flavor with well-balanced bitterness. Toast, faint grapefruit and grass, mild honey and bread. Light to medium in body with fine carbonation. Clean, crisp, lightly dry finish, mild sugar, toasty bread, light citrus. Incredibly drinkable beer.
