Bottled. Goldeny amber colour with a small white, but longlasting head. Aroma is fruits, some mild bready and biscuity maltiness along with a bit berryish notes. Flavour is sweet and crispy malts, with some floral and berryish notes kicking in. Mellow.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sampled cask conditioned at The Crown Inn, Hesket Newmarket, Cumbria.
Amber coloured. Toffee aroma. Chewy and malty, dryish with filling mouthfeel. Complex flavours, and chocoalte finish. This is the most outstanding of the fine ales I sampled at this pearl of a country brewpub in the northernmost corner of the English Lake District. If you want to eat here, make sure to reserve a table way ahead, as it is very popular with the locals.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. A copper coloured beer with a whitish head. A nice smoky, malty aroma. Sweet ish in the mouth with good fruits and a nice malty body. Really easy to drink and far better and more enjoyable than the sum of its parts which is a real skill.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A copper coloured best bitter. Quite malty, but a bit of butterscotch and the malt seems rather undeveloped. Some hops come through in the flavour, but this wasn’t ready in my view. Cask (gravity dispense) at Peterborough Beer Festival.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Peterborough Fest. Sulphury nose. Some chocolate and oaky notes in an otherwise slightly fizzy and acidic best bitter. Looking at Per’s comments, I would say that this is a beer that doesn’t travel well.

Cask, Beehive Carlisle. Sweet, fruity aroma and flavour. A good body, with a bittersweet finish and tang. Not had this for years & I think it’s vastly improved
