COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
Continued to badged as Buckleys for some time after the takeover by Brains but that seems to have been dropped now.
The Rev. James is named after the founder of Buckley’s Brewery the Reverend James Buckley (1770 – 1839).
The Rev. James is brewed to a traditional recipe and has been described as having a flavour not commonly available these days. Full-bodied and warming, The Rev. James is rich in palate, spicy and aromatic with a deeply satisfying finish.

Rich, warming and deep in flavour. An old bitter in appearance and aroma, but not a bad drop overall. -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10

Marstonlad (386) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 1, 2014
Cask at Lemon Tree, London. Pours reddish brown with a little head. Aroma displays nutty and bready maltiness with a hint of caramel and raisin, interesting if a bit mild. Taste is medium sweet with malts providing the bulk of the flavours, caramel and bread on the forefront. Light to medium bodied, smooth palate. Decent sweet old ale, lacks body though.
