Cask at Hook Norton Brewery. Golden. Slight sourness from the errrr malt maybe. Tart on finish, which is pleasingly flavoursome. Damon Hill.

This is a really nice smooth bitter that just goes down so easily. Great for a short session.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask with Sarah. Pours a clear amber gold with an off white head that dissipates to the edges and laces slightly. Aroma has notes of light fruit and light pine with a backing note of earthy grains. Flavor is easy to drink light pine with grapefruit and sweet grains.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled from a cask direct from the brewery at Henry’s wedding. Poured an amber colour, bright in colour, looked very flat. I’d say something of a consistency of house character with the Hooky, but as a premium bitter had a more pronounced (boozy?) fruity malt character along with good levels of hop bitterness. A very tasty beer, I’d have had a few more but for the slightly aggressive abv, would be a dangerous session!

Cask at Wetherspoons in Banbury, Oxfordshire. A straw coloured pour with a medium white head on top. Virtually no aroma to speak of. Tastes slightly hoppy, malty, hint of caramel. Not much activity in this one.

First tasted this in Coanes, Johnstone in August 1996. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear orange amber in colour with a thick white head. Short sweet golden syrup notes in the aroma. Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malts give a rich digestive biscuit base with sweet caramel notes. Yeasty bread notes in the short bitter aftertaste. Finish is slightly citrus with orange peel notes and a hint of liquorice. An ok session ESB.

The Merchant, Rugby. Burnished orange gold with a low, lacing top. Slight orange and pine aroma. Thick and heady with hay, aniseed, orange and almond notes. Some cream and pine. A pint would be plenty. Decent, old school stuff but too much at lunchtime
