COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask & Bottle Conditioned; Regular.

A hoppy amber ale, brewed with a complex mash of Marris Otter pale malt, Rye, Caramalt and Wheat.
A shed-load of American hops provide a delightful marmalade / citrus bitterness, well balanced by the sweetness of the malt, whilst delivering a charcteristic peppery Rye flavour.

A very light beer, easy to drink. A traditional style, but needs some balls! Too wet round the ears for me, however, Buxton still makes the finest beers in Christendom! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Light haze on this amber beer. Good off white head. Palate is smooth and semi dry with a mild carbonated sting. Mild orangey hops, fresh but pithy. Mild rye spice. Mild minerals and marmalade bitterness. Not bad.

minutemat (1387) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 30, 2013
Cask at The Jolly Butchers. Stoke Newington. Got some bark and forest moss on first sip. Essence is dust, cobwebs and cigar but evens out to a vaguely pleasant malty taste. I felt like I should be smoking a pipe with this.

RichardW (1461) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2013
Bottled. Pours a dusty amber colour. Very prominent citrus and sulphur aroma, taste is well balanced, smooth, yet with some grain characteristics. Tangy fruity finish, with lemon notes. An interesting and very drinkable beer
