Cask; Regular.
A dry, hoppy traditional bitter with a light bronze colour. Excellent on its own and particularly good with food.

Leighton (12969) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2015
Cask at the Great British Beer Festival 2014, Day 3 - London. Pours clear, vibrant gold with a frothy white head. Nice bitter, with some easy grains, hay, lightly toasted bread, dough. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Good balance on the finish with slight bitter straw, leaves, lightly toasted grains. Solid one.

Alfies, Winchester. A hop forward session bitter. A little too rasping in the finish for my taste.

ForlornHope (145) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - OCT 10, 2014
On draught at the Wheatsheaf, Shedfield, Hampshire. Aroma is of cereal and has a slightly resinous hint. Really nice orange colour, brilliant appearance, slight head. Exceptional taste of grain, the sweetness immediately becoming very bitter with a peppery background. Great mouthfeel, the bitterness goes on and on, with a very long finish bordering on astringency. Overall an extremely good beer. The bitterness is exceptional and may put some off, but this is one of the best cask beers out there right now.

jd543 (414) - SCOTLAND - MAY 18, 2013
Amber colour, little in the way of a head. Rich malty aroma with a hopy kick. Perfectly pleasant, well balanced beer with a light bitter finish.

Theydon_Bois (11072) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 15, 2012
Cask at the Albion, Winchester - 09/09/12. Mid amber with a small white head that soon cleared to nothing. Caramel and malt on the nose, slight diacetyl tones. Flavour follows nose with a little dark fruit in there, again a tad buttery. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation leading to a dry finish. File under ’W’ for whelmed!

kiwianer (3413) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 12, 2012
Head is medium, the body brown-gold. The taste is a bit bitter, different flavours, hoppy, bitter. In the aftertaste a bit bitter sweet. 11/10/10/9/-/10

berkshirejohn (4897) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2012
Cask at the Hyde Tavern, Winchester. Bright amber with a tight cream head; orangey fruit aroma; intense orange fruit flavour with a pleasantly sharp bitterness leaving a slightly spicy finish. An excellent standard bitter, certainly not "ordinary".

imdownthepub (10973) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2009
Cask conditioned at The Black Boy, Winchester. Amber with white head. Proving that this pub can serve a decent beer, but strangely it was right next to another pump with Black Boy bitter, which is the same beer as this!! Hoppy, bitter, lasting session type beer, pretty reasonable, but not for 10p over 3 quid its not.
