Cask at Craft Beer Co., London. Pours clear, amber0ruby with a fine, white foam head. Basic but rich bitter with mild dry fruits and toast. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Moderate dry and toasty leaves in the finish, some toasty sugars, faint dry orange citrus. Easy beer, good balance, good condition. No problems here.

Oakes (15806) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 3, 2014
Amber, bright, bubbly head. Not much aroma but a really nice creme brûlée malt, juicy hop character. Totally suffolk in character, actually, a lot like Adnams. 4 7 8 4 17 Kept going back to this one.

imdownthepub (13418) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2010
Cask conditioned at Far From the Madding Crowd, Oxford. Amber to copper with slight white head. Quite a malty, grainy bitter, just a touch on the sourish side. Some lightly perfumed hop notes, but this is dominated by the malt.
