On draught in Swindon, so not quite the Cotswolds. Dark woody colour, decent white head and medium bodied. Some earthy fruit on top of caramel malt. Pretty good and very drinkable.

Queens Head, Stow-on-the-Wold. Diacetyl in the nose. Honeyed flavour. Soft and accessible, but a little dry and dull and slightly spoiled by the diacetyl (which, reading the other comments, seems to be a standard feature of the beer when served at this pub).

Had this at The Queens Head in Stow. Malty and caramel, bronze color and a nice head. Preferred the BB also on cask.

Draught at a pub in Stowe-on-the -Wold. Nice simple bitter that is good for sessioning. Best drunk in a small pub owned by the brewery if you ask me.

Cask at the Prince of Wales, Farnborough BF (at the bar - may have been part of the BF range?) - 12/10/12.
Clear golden/amber with a decent off white head. It’s appearance was the highlight of this beer!
Pale malt nose and a touch of the vinegars.
Taste is pale malt a little fruit and hops.
Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, bitter finish.

Queens Head, Stow-on-the-wold, Cotswolds. Darkish brown/amber, creamy head, caramel and butterscotch malts & light bitterness. A lovely session drink for sure, very moreish. There were 2 staunched lager drinkers in our group and they happily quaffed SBA all weekend. And I do mean all weekend...

Straight from the cask at Arkell’s Brewery Beer Festival 2010. Chesnut coloured beer. Citrus nose, some fruit in the taste and a dry palate. Tasty.

15th July 2010. Chelmsford Beer Festival. Hazy amber beer. Little cream head. Sulphur on the nose - sigh! Dry palate - almost chalky. Fresh tangy fruit - tart orange with an unusual and pleasant dash of cherry. Nice flavour but the palate is too bloody dry!

Cask @ Queens head, Stow-on-the-wold, cotswolds. Darkish amber orange, light textured white head, watery body, light caramel malts & lighter bitterness. A hearty drink to be enjoyed indeed. I really enjoyed this one and the hospitality at the pub. Pub and SBA both heartily recommended. Even the Mrs liked it (!).
