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.

BlackHaddock (3912) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2014
Cask pint in my local Wetherspoons on 30th Sep 2014. Mahogany reddy brown in colour, clear and clean, an off-white head on top. I thought it dry, bitter and hoppy. Had I known it was brewed to celebrate a Welsh Prince who rose against the English I would not have bought it. I actually enjoyed the beer but I will never have another.

berkshirejohn (4601) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 18, 2014
Cask at the Prince Arthur (JDW), Fleet. A dark golden amber pour with a loose cream head; aroma of purple fruits; a big, full, mouth-watering taste, spicy and malty to begin, followed by a strong woody bitterness, and then some orangey malts; leading to a dry spicy finish with traces of grapefruit and licorice. A complex beer with a forceful presence, well worth looking for.
