Originally brewed by Hardys & Hansons in Nottingham. Brewed by Greene King in Bury St Edmunds since December 2006.
This delightful well-hopped premium ale has a clean fresh hop aroma which produces a rich, full flavour. All the traditional bitter characteristics from one of Britain’s oldest brewers.

edsspoon (714) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2015
Cask - amber with a creamy light brown head. Good retention and good lace. Aroma of dust, wheat and cocoa. Taste of grass, dust, wheat and hints of chocolate. Medium body.

triskaideka (208) - Killarney, IRELAND - FEB 23, 2015
Cask at Crown and Anchor, Eastbourne. Dark amber - small white head doesn’t last long. Mediocre mainstream bitter - hard to remember details as nothing springs out

niquillis (1583) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 10, 2014
On cask at The Bakers, Basingstoke. Stereotypical brown twig beer. It’s OK but has been left behind.

mike_77 (3784) - 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 (5312) - Ruhrcity, 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.

MichaelAwesome (5287) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 4, 2014
On tap at Eastbourne shared with McTapps. Had two on that day and this one was more or less awful. Brown and dull with a bit of malt and some russian style malt syrup. Developed some taste of chocolate in the end but until that it was more or less undrinkable.

olsvammel (3934) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JUN 20, 2014
On tap at Turf Tavern in Oxford. Malty and bready smell, toasty. Similar taste but mild. Hint of banana. Mild bitterness. Smooth mouthfeel.

JimmyBoy74 (358) - Örebro, SWEDEN - APR 24, 2014
Pint på Royal national. Klassisk engelsk öl när den är som bäst. Bärnstensfärgad. Doftar citrusfrukter. Smakar bröd och citrus.

jackafholmes (598) - - MAR 21, 2014
Really thick frothy head. Deep dark red colour. Quite bitter, and refreshing bite. Oaky malt flavours.

Gary (1532) - Piss-ant Valley, Somerset, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2014
cask @ Who-Thought it Rochester; this is almost like a sweet Dopplebock in some regards but with out the booze and otherwise structure . .But there is similar Toffee apple syrupy palate that holds on to your tounge . A good pint of ale , the malt complexity is right there !
