4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a dark amber with a small head that stays around, and leaves a healthy lacing down the side. Typical of cask I reckon. The low carbonation that is.
Malty, and a bit of hops. Thatís about it. Nothing exceptional, but nothing too distracting either.
Tastes like a session bitter in just about any bar. Malty. Hoppy. Blended just right to make you want more. A little nuttiness in there as well.
Refreshingly crisp. Light carbonation and barely any bitter twang. Malt sticks around after drinking it leaving a nice sweetness.
Very. I could quaff this one all night long. And I just may. Nice beer to have while conversing your cares away with some good company after a day of working.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Beer Engine: burnt orange amber with a thick cloud-like head. Airy hop cone aroma, leave and chlorophyll. Loads of pear and apple flesh. Palate is a bitter but has some sweet nectar and flowers. A bit one dimensional, but all around good flavours, but not much depth. Some dry hop cones linger, nice.

I had this ale on a hot sommer afternoon and was satisfied. Nice creamy head and subtle flow. It is rather light in body (and low in alcohol), has a clean taste with touches of butterscotch toffees, grass and pears. The "english ale" disctinctive hoppy bitterness is practically non existent.
Having checked the reviews on www.ratebeer.com most seem to moan about this brew being "thin". I would agree if compared to say a Youngís Special London Ale, however would believe the lightness is a virtue here. This is a great thist quencher for hot afternoons, on a cold winternight I probably would not have loved it much.

Very nice Goldings aroma with a touch of pine-laden toffee. Clear dark amber with long-lasting, clingy white flanel blanket. Surprisingly complex for such a small beer: nutty and apple-y malt with some tobacco/raisin and rounded, subtle bitterness. Very quaffable!

At Stansted airport. Very good balance. Aromas of caramel, cola, and peach. Taste is sweet, with bitter notes, and long length. Palate is oily, and medium bodied. Orange, with a frothy head.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Amber color with solid lip sticking foam head, lacing to glass. Aroma is of a British lager, bit bitter. Taste was great with the steak we ordered. Nince bitter aftertaste, turning bit sweet. (Barnsley 201208)

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask. Dark orange, transparent. Not too hoppy, but maybe thatís because Iíve had a lot of west coast IPAs before. Nice citric orange rind notes.

UPDATED: SEP 6, 2008 Have been served this warm and cold and is definitely better when warm, its ok with some sharpish bitter flavours, which go quite deeply into the pint, it has a certainin charm to it and is worthy of a decent rating

Clear brown, slight white head. No distinctive aroma, perhaps seaweed. Light body and carbonation. Flavour is light and well balanced - malt, fruit, spice with some bitterness in the finish. Good easy drinking quaffing beer, perhaps a bit thin.
