Cask & Bottle conditioned; Regular.
A classic mid-brown coloured strong bitter, with a markedly bitter finish from the generous use of Styrian hops. Flavoursome English pale malt adds balance and a smooth finish, which lasts and lasts. Full-bodied, yet with an ease of drinking which belies its strength.

chriso (7428) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2011
Cask (handpump) at the Queens Head, Chelmsford on 3 February 2011. Amber colour. Initial impression is sweet and rather malty with quite jammy fruit. However, some assertive sharp hops come through strong in the middle and it ends much more dry, bitter and balanced that the initial impression suggested. Tasty stuff.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUN 15, 2010
Cask conditioned handpump The Pub Leicester. An orange/gold coloured beer with a white head. Bready malts and oatcakes in the aroma. Very bitter in the mouth with citrus notes. Big bodied and with burnt toasty notes. Bit too much going on really as the hops and the burnt bits don’t really balance. Interesting though.

ladnewton (1490) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 14, 2010
Cask at the Cask Pub & Kitchen, London on 9th January 2010. Orange gold with thin disappearing yellow white head. Rounded. Hoppy citric notes and a touch of orange zest. Toffee malt aroma. Increasingly dry bitter finish. Smooth mouthfeel. Satisfying beer.

sm89walt (1780) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 3, 2010
Cask - The Fat Cat, Norwich. Pours amber with a fine, disappearing off-white head. It’s called Marmalade for a reason: dry orange peel aromas and a dry grassy hop note. Again, a juicy yet dry twang of bitter marmalade on the tongue, which succeeds in holding you over until the next sip. Dry and refreshing, bitterness is different and a change of pace. Softish palate, medium body.
