Gary (1889) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 4, 2015
Cask @ Grayhounds JDW >Bridport . Dark brown with a long lasting creamy white head . malty roast nose, chocolate - like Maltesers . A powerful rich roast coats the tongue . Vibes and textures that suggest chocolate , toffee apple , earthy mild hops . That rich roast is excellent . This is a compact , flavoursome and enjoyable Bitter. I could drink this till I pass out. A good low boost beer.

JorgeLee (1797) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2014
Cask in the Bree Louise. Deep chestnut brown colour, thick foam. A fairly typical south-west ale, fruity, malty and sweet. Slightly minerally (sulphur?) to smell. A tiny spicy hop in the finish, but the sweet fruitiness dominates. Pleasant enough.

imdownthepub (13390) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2013
Cask conditioned at Far From the Madding Crowd, Oxford. Amber to copper with white head. This is a richly roasted malt quality, full and quite nutty, in some ways quite roasted chestnuts character. Bitter towards the end, lasting. Reasonable.

BeerViking (4209) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2013
Cask at the Magpie, red-brown with a lasting coarse head and a malty nose. Malty body with hints of forest fruit and a roasty bitterness on the palate. Pleasant, albeit pretty run-of-the-mill.

Cask conditioned handpump Queen Adelaide Northampton 11/03/13. A ruby coloured beer with an off-white head. Sweet and fruity with plummy notes. A touch of sour alcohol late on. Its OK but unremarkable.

Cask; golden brown, frothy white head; sweet malty aroma; sweetish malty flavour with fruit - some bitter orange and berries, and wood; quite a bitter finish; straightforward, average bitter.

downender (7960) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2013
Cask-conditioned at the Cornubia, Bristol 16/2/2012. Deep brown with a decent, off-white head. Sweet caramel and hedgerow fruits, with some solid malts and decent, bitter finish. Fine.

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 4, 2005
Deep copper colour. Very malty and quite sweet with pronounced toffee and caramel notes. Lots of plummy fruits but only light bitterness. I found it a bit soft and rather too sweet for my taste. Cask (handpump), Tom Browns, Dorchester.
