COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
"Brewed to a recipe combining pale and crystal malts with choicest traditional ale hop varieties. The beer has a long, deep, bitter-sweet finish with fruit and hop notes, a strong ale which is distinctively hoppy."
Michael Jackson 500 Classic Brews.

AshtonMcCobb (3400) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 2, 2015
On cask at the William Stead. Appearance - amber with a decent head. Nose - spiced biscuit and apple. Taste - more of the same plus slight malt astringency. Palate - light to medium bodied with a crunchy texture and a dry malty finish. Overall - solid but not special.

RDJenkins (2) - WALES - AUG 24, 2014 does not count
Settles a clear copper with a thin head. Taste is dull but steady - bready with flat cereal undertones. Creamy on the palate with floaty toasted malts. Eminently drinkable but dissapates quickly. Homely but unspectacular.

NordicV (1293) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - AUG 3, 2014
Cask @Charlies i Köpenhamn. Bärnstensfärgad öl med lätt skum. Doften är fruktig med karamell och lätt blommighet. Smaken är ganska söt med frukt malt och en lätt jordighet.

jjsint (1134) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUL 29, 2014
Cask at the Goat Major, Cardiff. Copper brown with a thick creamy head. Sulphurous berry aroma, a bit of biscuity malt. Taste is robust, bittersweet with slightly sour edges. Malty caramel and tart berry dominate the flavour. Thicker body that one would expect. Slightly odd finish and aftertaste but all in all a decent and dependable if not outstanding cask bitter.

BeerViking (2878) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2014
Cask at the Hounslow JDW, deep brown with a thin white head, nose has toffee and a hint of cocoa. Mid-full bodied with caramel, nutty and lightly fruity notes, touch of sweetness but nicely countered by an earthy and faintly herbal bitterness.
