Cask conditioned gravity dispense Eastgate Northampton. A golden coloured beer with a loose off-white bubbly head. Grassy in the nose and mouth but with a high level of bitterness. Straightforward but drinkable enough.

Cask (handpump) at the Museum Tavern, Bloomsbury, August 2009. I think this was probably a special but I’m not entirely sure. Attractive rich amber colour. Thin but lasting head. Pleasant and fruity. Straightforward but tasty enough. I’m not usually a big fan of Brains beers but I enjoyed this more than most of the standard Brains fare.

The name is nice and compromising. Had it from a tap and it was nice to drink, a little too bitte rfor my taste but very well-brewed.

Cask-conditioned at the Globe, Frampton Cotterell, S Gloucestershire 06/09/09. Inviting, clear amber in colour with a billowy white head that left rings down the glass. Aroma of grassy hops, apricots and a touch of hay. Flavour of biscuit malt, with a trace of citrus and decent dry finish. Good.
