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.

Tasted cask at Famous Three Kings, West Kensington, London on 18 May 2012. Slightly cloudy dark amber color, spongy small head with long retention, no specific aroma, roasted malt taste, medium carbonation, long finish. Surprisingly fine.

Pyrmir (2758) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAR 16, 2014
Cask during London vacation. Clear copper color with thick off white head. Aroma is sweet, fruity, toast and caramel. Taste is medium sweet, ashes, earth and mild acidity leading to a bitter and ashy finish.

Niall73 (1051) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 30, 2014
Cask, coach and horses. Streatham. Pours amber with an off white head. Aroma is malty and a touch medicinal. Medium body, mild carbonation. Toffee cake. Sweet with very little bitterness and there's is very little going on, but it's perfectly drinkable. OK. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jjsint (494) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2014
Cask @ The Cannon, Newport Pagnell. Mahogany; dark but clear with a compact head. Aroma not up to much: faint spruce and Malteasers. Taste is sweet with an overlaid smokiness. Bitter aftertaste. It is ok, but not one of Brain’s successes.

Osprey87 (1158) - London via, WALES - JAN 19, 2014
Cask at the Crown and Sceptre Cadoxton, Neath. Short review due to social event. Clear dark brown with a foamy white head. Smell is toned down malts - not much to describe. Body is medium. Taste - malty, metallic notes, musty bitterness. Average and a pint is plenty.

gegwilson (616) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2014
Cask in the Thatched Cottage, Farnborough. A chestnut ale with a cream head. Quite nice and malty with biscuit and caramel notes. Nice enough.
