COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Regular.
Brewed at Henley by Brakspear until 2002 when the brewery closed and Refresh UK bought the rights to the brand. The beer was then contract brewed at the Thomas Hardy (Burtonwood) brewery for Refresh until 2004 when production was transferred to a purpose built brewhouse at the Wychwood brewery which includes original Brakspear brewing equipment.

Cask at Max’s. Pours clear copper with a creamy off white head and lots of lacing. Tastes like light hops, dry cracker malt, grapefruit. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like sweet, dry spice, cloves, biscuit malt, and cinnamon fruityness.

Cask at Max’s. Pours clear amber with thick, creamy white head. Aroma is cereal and biscuit malts, light floral and grassy hops, and faint pear. Flavor is smooth malty base with light apple esters, light hop bitterness, and faint toast; creamy and smooth throughout. Medium body and carbonation.

solidfunk (3660) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUL 9, 2014
Not a bad session bitter. Pours amber with pretty good head and lacing for cask. Light citrus that gives this mostly an acidic finish. OK barley presence. Cask at Max’s

Oakes (12234) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 14, 2014
Dark amber, minerally, slightly metallic character. Touch of caramel, good hop character leaves a dry, moreish finish, really nice easy-drinking bitter, though with a hint of diacetyl.

Cask at The Three Tuns in Henley. A lot of flavour for the abv. My dad enjoyed this. It is a classic brown English beer.

Cask. A decent session bitter that was greatly helped by being served in good condition.

Golden copper in colour. Has a slight berry fruit character, more so in aroma than taste - and a fair bitterness.
