From cask at Charlies. Pours cloudy orange with a lacing off-white head. Light toasted to breadish dry malt aroma. Flavour follows this with a mild fruity note in addition. Light liqourice note into the finish. Finish holds a light bitterness yet still mixed with the same malt flavours. Very pleasent biter.

Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Amber. Bland malty aroma. Some roast in the taste with some sharp bitterness at the finish. I find I donít get on too well with Hambleton beers. This is an exception. Quite decent.

Bottle. Amber with a moderate white head. Aroma began with some floral hops and then became a touch earthy. The flavour started with some malt before the same earthiness, almost farmyard-like came through. The finish was bitter with some more floral hops. Pleasant.

Red mahogany and a nice head. the aroma has notes of roasted malt and hops, and I find the same in the flavour. Itís a bit thin in the body, so this stallion isnít very feisty. The finish has a nice bitterness.

Bottle. Pours a dark brown body with a small bubbly white head. Pleasing aroma - very nutty and caramel-esque with some ryeish tones. Nutty flavour, some bitter grassiness, and watery character. A bit thin but itís not terrible by any means.

Bottle 500 ml
Very fine haze, black tea like with stroke of copper. Minimalist fizz and ring of foam around.
Richly composed aroma, medium dark malts. Dark heavy honey like nose, sap and green bitter hops. 6,5/10
Woody bitter like front, lighter earthy below. Sweet, thick brown sugars noted .Green leaf on top. Hint of black tea floats around. Multi layered ale. Decent but not mostly coherent brew out there.

Cask at the Wharf. Nice malty sweet aroma. Dark copper/brown colour. OK head. Very nice flavour, sweet fruity hoppiness, a little spicy. Finishes on a good bitter note, cleaning the palate. Pleasantly low carbonation.
