Smells nice and fruity but soon gets distinctly average. Quite watery in taste and carbonation in the bottle takes away the charm of the cask version. Cheap and dull but inoffensive really.

Patrickctenchi (6090) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - OCT 2, 2016
Bottle: Clear, amber, with a clear-white/soapy head. Watery caramel, hay scent. Taste is fairly weak and washed out, but not bad.....toffee malt, grain malt, grass. A slight yeastiness. Bland, overall....but it would be a great session beer for sitting too long at the pub with....

shrubber85 (10760) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - SEP 30, 2016
Bottle. Barley toffee malt and hay aroma. Hazy golden yellow with moderate head. Lightly sweet barley, toffee malt, and moderately bitter herbal hay/light wine flavor. Body on the light side. Seems a little underattenuated but okay.

jmgreenuk (7837) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - AUG 17, 2016
Cask at the Crumpled Horse, Upminster. Poured a crystal clear medium amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is malt, light hop. The flavour is moderate bitter with a light smooth grainy malt, hop bitter palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

alexmate (74) - South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2016
A fairly average ale. Pours a dark gold colour with a big creamy head. Nose: difficult to detect. Some caramel, malt and a slight vomit like smell. Taste: the caramel is present, some slight metallic taste and some slightly floral bitter hops. Not bad just very unremarkable, reminds me a bit of Bass bitter. Price paid: £1.

berkshirejohn (6072) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2016
50cl bottle from Morrison’s, Bracknell. An amber pour with no head but light carbonation; caramel malt aroma; fizzy in the mouth with a caramel taste; nd then a lightly astringent finish. Rather poor.
Earlier Rating: 9/23/2010 Total Score: 2.7
50cl bottle from Aldi. Pours amber with a rapidly fading white head; light biscuity aroma; typical stewed malt flavour of an over-pasteurised beer; some more dry biscuit to finish. Actually quite pleasant.
