Spoons Fest.Clear amber beer. Pretty well balanced in it’s dullness. Dry malt, hops more bitter than fruit. Typical English bitter. Lingering bitter aftertaste. Hard to be offended but just dull.

tombyars (1411) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - JAN 4, 2012
First tasted this somewhere in Nottinghamshire in June 1990. Cask, handpump dispense. Jet black in colour with ruby highlights and a thin creamy buff head. Strong roast malt in the long aroma. Thin but creamy mouthfeel and good lacing. Dark malt base gives a robust roast coffee, treacle fudge and bitter chocolate notes. Bitter hop resins give a dusty dry aftertaste. Finish is malty with juicy berry notes. A decent session mild and full of flavour considering the low ABV.

berkshirejohn (4679) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2007
Cask at the Hay Inn, Shirland, Derbyshire. An appealling deep cherry red colour with a cream head; little aroma; but a fruity taste with cherries too; a clean light dry finish with a touch of biscuit.
