COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also available in keg (cold filtered but not pasteurised).
Refreshingly clean, easy-drinking bitter, with a wonderful aroma of freshly-rubbed hops that carries through to a satisfying aftertaste. Also available as a cold-sterile filtered (not pasteurised) kegged beer

Patrickctenchi (3658) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAY 27, 2012
Pours red-amber with active off white head. Aroma is sweet malt, earth. Taste is tea....smooth bitter hops. A nice, soft feel to this one. Light, mild, excellent.

mR_fr0g (3130) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2011
Bottle from Tesco. Burnt orange pour with absolutely no head. This bottle may not have been treated very well. Big skunky metalic smell. Palete is very thin. Flavour is metalic slightly nutty. Worst beer I’ve have in a long time.

queenholly (2920) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - APR 6, 2012
Bottle courtesy of shubber85. Light amber with a small white head. Sweet malty aroma with a faint hint of spice... almost like cinnamon. Slightly sweet biscuity malt and a light herbal hops finish. Light bodied.

Mungo (2472) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2006
Bottle (from Bitter Virtue, BBE Oct 06). Fruity hops to the fore with gentle malt sweetness in the mouth. Well balanced but just lacking a little pazaz.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 26, 2007
Cask at the Bargeman’s Rest, Newport, Isle of Wight, 5th Sept 2007 (thanks to the lads at Stainless Games). Strong aroma of fruit and wine, but a bit musty. Clear amber appearance. Rich, malty taste - reminded me of Wadworth 6X. Full bodied but short on the finish. Good enough but not great.

hirigalzkar (2290) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 31, 2012
On tap @ Akkurat. Honey, candy sweet tropical hoppiness, white bread. Small flowery bitterness. Light and drinkable.

Vignale (2061) - Malmö, SWEDEN - SEP 29, 2010
Goddards standard ale. Ett bra hantverk men inget som stack ut. Typisk engelsk EKG karaktär.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - SEP 6, 2006
Cask (GBBF 2006): Quite nice simple nutty malts with earthy hops. Balanced and Morish. I bet they brewed this specially for Trevor.

SarkyNorthener (1950) - Walsall (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2013
Cask@lychgatetavern, wolverhampton. Amber coloured, medium head with good lacing. Little aroma. Taste is a dash of pepper and nothing much else. Pretty dull. Not a good beer at all.

Alphadelic (1751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 9, 2009
This is somehow the clearest drink I have ever seen. Simple sweet malty nose with the tiniest hint of hops deep in there somewhere. Nice and thick with very little carbonation which works well with its laid back nature. It has a nice balance but it has nothing particularly worthy of a note home. Lots of neutral cereals and a honeyed finish with some bitterness.
