omhper (21761) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 20, 2002
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.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2011
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.

Bottled. Golden and very clear appearance, but minimal white head. Aroma with elements of hay, grass, peach (and banana). Heavy sweet, lightly bitter, with a light bitter aftertaste

Many pints at the Brewery Tap itself in Hesket Newmarket. A fine session bitter. Fairly well balanced malt in the mouth and hops leading through to a dry fruit finish. Goes particularly well with the Rogan Josh served in the Crown Inn.

RichardW (1796) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2013
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

Good session bitter. Blew most of my Summer earnings at the brewery tap drinking Doris’ health when doing fieldwork for uni there.

oh6gdx (23143) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 31, 2013
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.

jjsint (1552) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2015
Cask at Old Friends, Ulverston. Golden, heading to copper. Medium-sized white head. Malt, butterscotch aroma, some astringency. Not terribly engaging. Taste is better: some orangey sour adds complexity to the bittersweet character. Medium dry finish. Interesting.

Nekronos (3838) - Xalapa, MEXICO - SEP 6, 2006
Very storng one, amber like in colour and good foam. Too strong to have much of it.
