A superb full-bodied amber bronze session beer - with a biscuit malt flavour balanced with a smooth bitterness from the finest English Fuggles and Golding hops.

Pint on draught at the Beehive, Earsdon. Clear copper with a good head. Mild malt, a little caramel sweetness with a bit of a tart tang to it also. Ends with a good mild to moderate bitter finish. Light carbonation and very, very smooth. A very pleasant session beer.

9th April 2015: gravity pour at the Isle of Man CAMRA beer festival. More blonde than amber with a white crown for it’s head. Nice blend with the hops winning the aroma stakes and the malts coming first in the flavour race. Easy drinking with a pleasant bitter hop finish.

Bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. Dark amber coloured with a toffee, blackcurrant and sherbet flavour followed by an earthy, peppery hop and sweet fruit finish. Very nice.

Cask at The Cluny. Pours clear amber with a thin white head. Aromas of caramel biscuit and soft berry fruit. Mostly caramel sweetness on the taste, and a bit thin on the finish. An OK bitter.

Cask conditioned at Oxford Beer Fest ’12. Pale Gold with white head. Quite a sweet, fragrant beer with a caramel, toffee background, bright enough and simple berried notes but just a little cloying.
