StueyD (1158) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2013
A dark brown beer with orange tints, weak head. A light hoppy aroma to start, then a mild coffee malt aroma comes through. Dry mouthfeel. A bitter hop taste, some citrus fruit, which is followed by a bittersweet malt flavour with hints of coffee and nut. The finish is dry and malty. Tasted at the 2013 Norwich CAMRA beer festival. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cask, half pint at Rook and Gaskill. Good looking bright golden-brown coloured body. Spotty lacing from a film-type layer. Quite powerful aroma of caramel malts, slightly roasted. Brittle caramel malty taste balanced by herbal hops. Malt bittersweet finish. Likable (York, 26.01.2013).

Cask@Blue Stoops,Chesterfield. Mmmm.. Not quite sure what to make of this. Very dark coloured,almost like a porter or a mild in apperance,which for a bog standard bitter may put some people off. It tastes quite hoppy and sharp with a slightly roasted after taste. In attempting to cover several different styles in one beer is brave,but ultimately it doesn,t succeed at anything as well as it should. it,s one of those beers that people will try,find okay but then move on to something else. It,s not bad,but........

Cask. Dark brown Ale with a light cream thick head. Hoppy nose with a malt hint. Surprisingly light in the mouth with a large bitter kick. Well balanced and sessionable. Finish is rich and dry. A quality session bitter without being overpowering in any aspect.
