COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
A light, ruby coloured ale with excellent hop and malt aromas, and a smooth, dry, malty flavour. A real ale that landlords tell us is popular with younger drinkers.

prawlie (1186) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2013
Pint at the Old Manor in Bracknell. Creamy, bubbly head over a dark red beer. Very smooth, dry aftertaste, floral hops, but disappointing. Creamy light chocolate aroma, but very faint. Wouldn’t bother with it again.

Bronze in colour and maintains a good head, but has very little character elsewhere.

justm (164) - Essex, ENGLAND - MAR 22, 2012
Cask at Blue Boar, Billericay. Pours a chestnut brown with an amber edge and a gentle off-white head. Aroma is very subtle, slightly floral and malty but very faint. It runs rather nicely over the palate however. Tropical fruit flavours shine then collapse quickly into a dry coarse bitterness which also doesn’t hang around for long. The merest of aftertastes leaves you pondering what it actually tasted like and so draws you in to another sip. A firework of a beer that flares, fades, then leaves you wondering whether it was really there in the first place.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 8, 2012
On cask at Cloisters. Pours a brown colour with a thick white head. A musty yeast and caramel aroma with similar flavours. A little lemon to finish. Moderate carbonation.

DruncanVeasey (7315) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2012
Cask, The Larry, Nuneaton, 25/02/12. Cherry red with copper edges under a slim cream top. Sour berry tang aroma. Same taste; aged, acetic, Tunes-like, plain wrong. Bitter afters from nowhere. Hay and faint biscuit. Yuck.

berkshirejohn (4674) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2012
Cask at the Wetherspoons on Victoria Station. Copper coloured with a tight beige head; red fruit aroma; smooth and soft with a rich fruity toffee flavour with lots of depth from deeply roasted malts; the finish is dry with some spicy hops. Very drinkable.

mr_h (3084) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - JAN 11, 2012
Cask by handpump at Counting House, Glasgow - very faint fruit malt aroma, pours clear deep amber with an off white head, slight sourness

tombyars (1411) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - OCT 5, 2011
Tasted this in The Esquire House, Glasgow (JDW) in October 2007. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear dark mahogany in colour with a thin white head. Strong roast grain the long aroma. Thick creamy delicious mouthfeel and good lacing. Dark malts give digestive malt with smokey overtones and rich overipe figs. Slightly dry leather notes in the bitter aftertaste. Molasses in the sweet warming finish. Tastes like a stronger, better version of Ambeardextrous. Cracking session ale and well recommended.

wheresthepath (1615) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2011
[Cask at the Three Crowns, Chippenham] Chestnut with a slight white head and no fizz. Some toffee, a hint of vanilla; dry finish with a little sour, earthy bitterness. Somehow made me think of a Greene King seasonal which put me right off.
