A rich golden coloured smooth premium ale. Brewed with a full malt mash, this beer has a robust malty palate and well-balanced steely bitterness producing a massive complexity of flavours. A former Champion Premium Beer of Britain.

teorn88 (4686) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 14, 2015
Backlog rating. Cask at JDW CW, London. It pours a clean golden color with medium white head. Aroma is biscuity and bready, with light caramel and grain notes. Taste is mild and lightly sweet, with biscuit and bread dough notes. Light bodied with ok carbonation. Overall, unexciting

Hippoman (397) - Durham, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2015
Cask at Bishop’s Mill (JDW), Durham, £1.99/pint. Pours pale golden with thick white head. Malty and biscuity strong pale ale. Easy to drink but lacking in bitterness and hop character and therefore equally easily forgettable.

niquillis (2130) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2015
On cask at Bulls Head, Burslem. Pours golden with a white head. Some hay, water, hint of caramel toward the end to save it from being a real car crash of a beer.

nihtila (2086) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 6, 2015
Cask at JDW Alexander Graham Bell. Pours clear golden. Nose is malty and bitterish. Taste is sweet, grainy, some citrus hops and malts, bitterish finish. A bit unpleasantly sweet for the style.

gegwilson (2379) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2015
Cask in the Plimsoll Line, Redcar. Pours golden with an off white head. Little in the way of aroma or strong flavours. Light citrus and a touch of hay. Watery. Pretty bland.

Light straw colour with a white head. Slight grassy aroma but not much. Taste is too sweet for me with an acidic finish.

Towey1989 (958) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2015
Cask at The Green Dragon, Leek (JDW) A clear golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma of sweet grain, bread, some melon and lemon plus grassy hops. Taste of grain, bread, barley, light citrus notes of lemon and earthy hops, light bitterness. Light bodied and flat carbonation. A light vegetable and earthy bitterness in the finish. Don’t like this, has like a flat lager kind of taste.

UPDATED: APR 10, 2015 Excellent beer. Can see why it was a Champion. Vanilla aroma pale golden appearance. Subtle in taste as bitterness starts low and builds. Lovely citrus flavours. Seems mild on palate but as you down the pint it gets better. Very moreish. Lovely beer and will definitely drink again. Surprisingly score went down on second pint for aroma and overall. Still very good though.
