500ml bottle: pours a hazed amber in the glass with a smallish white cap. Modest carbonation. Aroma is understated – light sweet boiled cereals, light grassiness – clean. Weak mouth feel fluid body. Flavour is mild in both malt and hop presence, has a decent smoothness and ease of drinking, Bitter clean finish. Seems like a standard Brit pub mild to me, 2 dimensional, not really distinctive, but I presume this is far better fresh on cask – I have to wonder about the freshness of my sample seeing how it had virtually no ale fruitiness to it. Not that I’m overly thrilled by these mild Brit ales, but the idea of bottling cask style ale never works out well as it stales out so quickly in small containers like bottles.

Jimthechap (1941) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 24, 2015
Mahogany amber colour with a covering of white head. Notes of nectarine, candied orange peel and some faint woodiness. That woodiness comes through in the flavour along with gentle spice and orange peel again. There’s tangy bitterness and tingly carbonation. A bit of a treat down here.

(Cask at Crown Rivers JDW, London Heathrow Terminal 5, 1 Dec 2014) Amber colour with foamy, beige head. Fruity, hoppy nose with notes of citrus, apricots, hints of resin and lots of fresh hops. Malty, fruity taste with citrus, apricots, a touch of ginger and fresh hops in a finish with a balanced bitterness. Medium body, with a touch of sweetness. Fresh and tasty. Nice one.

Sjohnh (368) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2014
Dark amber, slightly cloudy, with a small but sticky white head. Medium body. Aroma of malt and grass. Some malt in the flavour too, but this is quickly overtaken by hoppy bitterness which then lasts and lasts. Interesting, but I’d prefer the sweet malt middle to last a little longer before the onslaught of hops.
