Cask; Regular.
By far our most popular ale. An aroma of pale malt and hops introduces you to a beautifully hoppy bitter beer, despite the predominant hop character, malt is also evident, fresh and clean tasting.

Cask@GBBF2009. Orangeish ambery colour, small white head. Aroma is peach, some earth, quite big on the bready and rather sweetish malts as well. Flavour is very much the same. Grassy dry finish.

DruncanVeasey (7349) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2009
Gravity, The Crown Xmas Fest, Nuneaton. Dull gold with no head. Butter, corn and sultana notes. Bit sicky and homebrewish at first but grew on me with some nice aged woody tones.

wheresthepath (1660) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2008
[On gravity cask at beer festival at The Retreat, Reading] Mid brown coloured. Deep malty, yeasty, earthy, almost eggy homebrew flavours which somehow made me feel slightly ill and reminded me of Wells Bombadier. Really didnít enjoy this one, but I can see that some might.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2008
Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Well, I thought this was excellent - just what you look for in a session bitter: amber colour with a small white head, buttery malt and sweetness in the aroma. Rounded malty taste with a hint of refreshing fruitiness. Just the right amount of bitterness for lunchtime. Top beer; my third from Bushys and Iíve liked them all. I donít object to the cartoon fox in this case as heís riding a motorbike and thus is clearly sober.

Gallas. This was clearly comign to the death and the manager insulted me for asking for the sparkler to be removed. Aroma had what i thought was peppermint and fruity notes, then i realised it smelt of mold. Taste was similar, i had to small drinks of it then left.

Nekronos (3737) - Xalapa, MEXICO - APR 12, 2006
Bitter, but refreshing, I liked it, not tiring and nice foam. The colour was a little pale, but still being dark yellow.

chriso (7475) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 18, 2006
Cask (gravity dispense) at Battersea Beer Festival 2006. Amber colour. Mainly malty. Dry with some smoky hints. Quite earthy. Hop character is rather muted. Could do with rather more bitterness. Quite acceptable, but not very distinctive.
