Taste of caramel, bready malts, some fruit slight red berries, a little cocoa powder and subtle spicy hops. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A dryish, fruity, malt bitterness in the finish.

Cask at the Townhouse, Ely. Mid brown, clear, very translucent. Vinegar, caramel, crystal malt aroma. Sweet taste with a bitter buck. Finish reminiscent of stone fruit and wine gums. Nicely carbonated. Solid enough offering from the GK stable

Cask. Little aroma. Poured cloudy brown clearing to darkish copper with thin white head. Ok in mouth and on tongue, smooth though again little depth to taste. Enjoyed but nothing exceptional.

triskaideka (363) - Killarney, IRELAND - FEB 23, 2015
Cask at Crown and Anchor, Eastbourne. Dark amber - small white head doesnít last long. Mediocre mainstream bitter - hard to remember details as nothing springs out

niquillis (2344) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 10, 2014
On cask at The Bakers, Basingstoke. Stereotypical brown twig beer. Itís OK but has been left behind.

mike_77 (5573) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - SEP 10, 2014
Has a light hoppiness in the aroma. A fairly simple bitter that is rather thin and watery. Lacks depth.

McTapps (6502) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - AUG 4, 2014
On tap at Crown & Anchor in Eastbourne. Pours out in a hazy brown colour with low head and flat body. Aroma of light malt and bread., Taste of bread, malt, acid berries and basement. Dull and boring to drink with no deepness. Awful stuff.
