At the Old Toad on recomendation of the bartender, he called this an English Pale Ale. It is a clear amber color, not much in the way of hoppy notes in nose or pale. It does have the typicall English hints of toffee/caramel, a bit of nuttiness, and is a nice session ale.

Dr_Butty (87) - SCOTLAND - MAY 15, 2012
Cask at Tweedies Grasmere. Deep brown, clear, modest head. Mild malty aroma, low bitterness. A fruity and malty pint with enough acidity to keep it fresh. Not Coniston’s best, but drinkable.

tombyars (1332) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - NOV 23, 2011
Tasted this at the Troon Beer Festival in October 2007. Cask, gravity dispense. Clear garnet red in colour with a thin white head. Strong aroma of boiled bramble fruit, long in intensity. Smooth mouthfeel and good lacing. Mixed malts give a fruity malty base with maltloaf to the fore, laced with dark berry fruits. Very short note of hop resins make a brief appearance in the quick aftertaste. Sweet malt appears at the end and gives a vinous finish with port flavours evident. An excellent old ale and well recommended.

Malty, fruity taste with notes of dark bread, caramel, raisins and a dry finish with a mild bitterness. Medium body, quite dry. Nice one.

Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 6, 2010
Amber-brown. Toffee-caramel nose - a touch of butter? Soft, light toffee character. Finishes a little bit weak, actually.

Beershine (5201) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - SEP 12, 2010
CAsk @ Black Bull, Coniston. Very dark brown with stable small head. Mild, shy fruity malt aromas. Some prune. Thin, almost watery. The fruity malt character is good but too subdued. Has a brilliant dry finish, though, and is a nice drinkable beer. Would peg it more as a mild than an old ale. The name of the beer is just the name of the mountain in Coniston anyway.
