A deep mahogany to ruby red bitter. Full bodied and slightly vinous malt character soundly balanced with the finest English hops. Celebrating the aircraft that broke the world speed record over Sussex in 1953.

Scopey (12711) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 31, 2016
Cask at the Claret. It pours clear deep brown with a medium off-white head. The aroma is rich, sweet toffee, light cocoa, wood, leather and brown bread. The taste is smooth, rich, bitter - sweet, toffee, dark fruits, wood, light spice, chewy malt and brown bread with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Great condition. Rich and pretty flavoursome. Good bitter.

imdownthepub (13395) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2013
Cask conditioned at The Turf Tavern, Oxford. Chestnut with slight head. A pretty smooth, malty beer with heavy toffee, caramel flavours. Quite cloying and a touch sweet for me to really enjoy it. Not totally sure about this one.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2010
Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Amber brown with a small off white head. Rough malt aroma with a touch of marmalade. Pleasant full sweet malt taste, a little peppery, with some bitterness. Hammerpot don’t seem to be getting the best of ratings, however I’ve had a couple this week. Martlet was pretty good. This one, I thought was first class. Well done.
