Cask conditioned Handpump Brunswick Derby. A pale gold coloured beer with a thin white head. The aroma is slightly sweet with the occasional biscuit note. Sweet and a little perfumed in the mouth Floral with a hint of tropical fruit. Drinkable enough but a bit of nothingness really.

Cask-conditioned at the Clytha Arms, Monmouthshire 11/08/09. Deep gold in colour with next to no head. Aroma of hay, sweet malts and a touch of grassy hops. Flavours of sweet, summer fruits and a hint of cloying butterscotch, from which it was saved by a decent bitter finish. Ok.

imdownthepub (13030) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2005
Cask Conditioned at The Great Western, Wolverhampton. Gold amber colour with foamy light head. This is a dry bitter, hoppy with an orange citricity that imparts a juicy flavour. Shows its alcohol a little with a nasal character, but overall a pretty decent beer.
