"The first beer brewed at High House Farm is this fine amber coloured traditional bitter with a fresh malty aroma. It is a true session beer that delivers a highly rewarding drink."

1/6/14 Cask in Keilder, a gold ale with aroma of malt. Taste, some hops, more malts, a respectable session ale.

Cask gravity at Berry Walmer. Hazy copper colour no head. Cant say it looks particularly good but it tastes ok. Some hop on the finish. Ok

downender (6565) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2012
On gravity at Swindon Beer Festival, 25/10/2012. Amber with a slight, off-white head. Some orange fruit, cereal malts and a touch of floral hop, before a decent, bitter finish. Fine.

dogbomb (984) - ENGLAND - FEB 9, 2012
On tap at White Cross Inn Beer Festival. Rich copper with a white head. There’s an odd vinegar scent coming from this which is sharp and mildly unpleasant. Thankfully the mouth taste isn’t the same. There’s a hint of eggs and malt. Not as unpleasant with it’s bitter malt finish - but just bizarre.

Koelschtrinker (11151) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - OCT 3, 2011
Frisch bitteres Grundaroma mit milder und dadurch gelungen erfrischender Blumigkeit. Süffig, das Gefühl der Wässrigkeit kommt kaum auf. Die Malzigkeit ist dabei gekungen mit Karamellnuancen versetzt, die den Wegfall der Blumigkeit kaum bemerkbar machen. Diese taucht im Abgang unvermittelt wieder auf, das Bier ist bitter, wenig süß, süffig, vollmundig. 6/11/11/12/7/12

imdownthepub (10745) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 12, 2011
Cask conditioned at The Olde Ship, Seahouses, Northumberland. Amber with white head. This is a really tasty session type beer, fresh, biscuity malts with a nicely balanced leafy hop, a touch of fruitiness and just a hint of roasiness. I liked this quite a lot.

Bullit (4029) - Burgos, SPAIN - OCT 11, 2010
