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

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 (17352) - 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.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 18, 2005
Cask@St Albans beer Festival. Bit boring to be honest. Toffee/caramel and apple, some citrus, tastes like a lot of other bitters i suppose.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - OCT 8, 2004
Cask Conditioned, at the Wenlock Arms, London.
Bright golden coloured body, in sublime condition, fine white head. Sulphury aroma. Juicy hop flavour with good bitter length. This was a good example of a good, yet unremarkable beer, scoring really well because it was in such good condition.

JonMoore (2066) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2004
Cask at the Swan in the Rushes, Loughborough. Nice brown colour with a good head and immaculate lacing. Great malty, caramel flavour, smooth and drinkable.

leaparsons (9942) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 14, 2004
Clear brown in appearance. Aromas are hoppy, spicy and clean. Not so much body but a great dry fruit skin dryness that lasts for some time.
