Cask; Seasonal - September and October.

A well hopped, russet coloured beer with strong floral hop notes easily recognised in the aroma. Characteristically autumnal and warming.

tombyars (1434) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - DEC 20, 2011
Tasted this in the Last Post, Paisley (JDW) in October 2009. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear orange amber in colour with a thin white head. Smell of wet soil and dusty hops in the short aroma. Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt gives a sharp citric orange flavour laced with hints of toffee. Bitter hop resins give a short dry aftertaste. Malt returns briefly in the well balanced finish with biscuit notes. An ok session bitter.

DonMagi (5595) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 26, 2009
Cask in the Market Porter. Alround rating: Caramel and lightly biscuity malt, grassy floral hop, perhaps lacking condition a bit. The generic 3.

downender (6646) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2009
Cask-conditioned at the Crosse Keys, London 06/10/09. Amber with a slight white head. Slightly strange mix of caramel and citrus fruit with a sharply bitter edge. Ok.

imdownthepub (10989) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 27, 2009
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Amber with white head. Light grainy bitter, dry and just a little thin. Easy drinking but little flavour and quite bland. Average.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - OCT 13, 2006
Cask conditioned - handpump - Swan and Rushes - Leicester. A copper coloured bitter with some citrus hop aromas featuring lemon predominantly. The taste is also nicely hoppy with more lemon again. Quite dry and nicely tasty and clean.

chriso (7475) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 3, 2005
Cask (gravity dispense), St Albans Festival, October 2005. Amber/gold colour. Rather dull, slightly grassy aroma. A bit sweet initially on the plate. Clean enough, with some citric hop, but there’s not really a lot going on. May not have been in peak condition.

harrisoni (14509) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 19, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 2, 2009 Cask handpull at Blakes, Dover. Copper colour with thin white head. Quite a nice hop nose with some strawberry fruit. Some acids in mouth, with drying hop end. Quite a nice bitter. In fact it must have been nice as I ended up doing a session on it and enjoyed each fresh pint. Not too heavy but enough taste it keep you interested 3.4/5 Re-rate cask handpull at County Hotel, Ashford, Good biscuit malt, Decent yeast, some fruit but as a biscuity light bitter, this was excellent.
