a_cross (639) - Poole, Dorset, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2014
Cask; top two thirds look ruby, bottom third amber - maybe the pub lighting; thin white head; malty aroma; taste is sweetish malt and stalky hedgerow fruit: blackberry, blackcurrant; perhaps a little liquourice; moderate bitter finish with some hop character; it may ’only’ be a 4.0% brown bitter, but it has enough character to avoid the dreaded third ’b’ and be a pleasant drink.

Pint at the Crispin in Wokingham. Bubbly head on a red amber beer. Tastes dry, bitter and of hops, pleasant on the palate. Perhaps a little watery. Aroma is hopped and sweet with a bit of fruit. Reasonable. A hint of fruitiness with a bitter dry finish.

Fin (9581) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2011
Cask, handpump at The Shoulder of Mutton, Wantage, Oxon, pub that is run by Peter Fowler (ex Pitsop Brewery) 14.01.11 Surprised that I hadn’t rated this however this seems to be the case. I think this was more amber than golden, and with a nice slim white head, in fact it looked superb. Taste was jolly decent, nice fruity bite and decent stabbing bitterness, lacking a bit in the hoppiness department otherwise a very decent session beer. A6 A5 T7 P4 Ov13 3.5

Cask gravity at Ealing BF 2009. Clean clear orange/amber, lasting bubbly beige head. Good toffee in the malts. Some decent hedgerow earthy hop on finish. It’s an ok quite tasty toffee bitter.
