Cask; Seasonal - February/March. Also available bottle conditioned.
Tasty premium bitter brewed with a blend of traditional UK Goldings and Fuggles hops.Enticing floral aromas of Fuggles are followed by smooth spicy/citrus flavours of Goldings hops. Dark malts give a dark amber hue to this fine ale and create a lasting, memorable finish.

AshtonMcCobb (2314) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 7, 2013
On tap @ the Ship Inn on Anglesey, of course. The beer is a dark toffee colour with a nicely proportioned head. The nose has toffee, small amounts of biscuit and apple. The taste is more in the toffee and caramel zone with a decent amount of bitterness to make it refreshing. Overall, a good ale.

Rune (7760) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 16, 2013
One-third pint glass, cask at Ship & Mitre. Tiny beige head to an almost mahogany coloured body. Good amount a lacing to the glass. Earthy, mid-sweet, malty nose. Taste of caramel malts mixed with spiced fruits. Bitter roast malts to the finish. Fine bodied. Decent brown bitter (Liverpool, 08.04.2013).

Hanoi (354) - Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 3, 2013
From 500 ml bottle. Nice malty aroma. Hazy amber in colour despite careful poor pouring. Slightly spicy taste with a muted citrus. Utterly forgettable beer,inoffensive and pointless

Pudding (172) - Birmingham, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 30, 2013
500ml bottle. Well carbonated, with thick marshmallow head. Hazy. An interesting mix of flavours, some pine. A worthwhile effort.

Essex (51) - Cardiff, WALES - JAN 5, 2013
Poured from a 500ml bottle into a pint glass. Bottle conditioned and brewed with golding and fuggle hops. Pours a dark amber colour with a hard to achieve head but surprising the small layer of foam stays and gives a lovely load of lacing. Smells dark and fruity, almost like preserved fruit e.g. raisins, dark malts there too and some spice. Tastes rich and dark, with tangy fruit and spice, some hop bitterness on the finish. Has an other quite a strong taste of alcohol and a fairly watery mouthfeel which are the main things putting me off this beer. Overall a decent beer, with quite a bit of room for improvement.

Not a bad bitter, taste is well balanced with some nice sweet malts going on too

tombyars (1332) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - OCT 1, 2012
Tasted this in the Salt Cot, Saltcoats (JDW) in October 2012. Cask, handpump dispense. Dark amber in colour with a thick off white head. Short yeasty note in the damp earthy aroma. Thin watery mouthfeel and poor lacing. Pale malt base gives a short maltloaf flavour with a hint of sweet overipe redcurrant and watermelon just about present. Slight sour taste comes through although the beer itself was not off. Spicy peppery note evident in the long bitter aftertaste. Sharp metallic tang noted in the weak malty finish, soon runs out of legs though. Reminded me of John Smiths Magnet in some ways. A poor session bitter

Cask@jdw. Dark brown colour large giant head. Aroma of sour malt. Taste is slightly too sour with a little bitterness and maybe a touch of coffee. Medium bodied and sour aftertaste. No very good, will not have again.
