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).

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 (!).

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cask at GBBF 2009, 5th August 09. Murky mid-brown. Very malty - lots of toffee and biscuit notes. Nutty too. Palate was flat though and overall it wasn’t a pleasant drinking experience. End of the barrel perhaps.
