Cask conditioned - handpump - New Inn, Cropton. A golden coloured beer with a tight white head and lacing. The aroma is slightly hoppy, but the hops in the mouth are better. Orange fruits. Clean, citric and drinkable.

StueyD (1567) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2007
A mid to dark, copper orange coloured beer with a thick off-white head. A predominantly malty nose, slight hint of caramel, toffee, then a well hidden hop aroma comes through with a touch of citrus. The taste is follows the pattern of the aroma, mainly malty elements, caramel, toffee, a touch of chocolate maybe, then a mildly zesty hop flavour comes through to give the finish a plesant dryness. (Cask - 2007 Cambridge Beer Festival).

berkshirejohn (6061) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2007
Cask at The Anchor Inn, Oakerthorpe, Derbyshire. Amber in colour with a white head; fruity taste and a clean bitter finish. A fairly basic bitter, not as interesting as some of the other Cropton brews.
