3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
[Pint, J.D.W. Cuthbert Brodrick - Leeds, 07/01/10] Aroma is all malt, with little in the way of hoppy influence, so there is caramel and toast on the nose, with subtle unwanted metallic notes. Taste is much the same; caramel sweetness joins in, with a light-medium bitter finish. Medium bodied with a slight oiliness. Not perfect, but this is certainly a quality English session beer for me.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask handpull at the brewery and The Reindeer, Banbury. Clear chestnut with a level cream collar draping with lace. Fresh, malt-driven bitter replete with biscuit, honey, vanilla and Ovaltine goodness; some fairly heady autumnal and hedgerow fruit bobbing about- pear and blackberry as well as the signature apple. Bittering walnut hints. Good.

Cask @ some bar, London. Amber colour, off-white head. The brew has caramel, and toffee, and some spices, maybe cinnamon? Not my taste.

Cask. Charlies Pub. Copenhagen. Amber colour with an off-white head. Grain, caramel (crystal malt), fruitiness, butterscotch, light roastiness, light coffee, bread, english hops. Malty, but balanced by a fair amount of hop bitterness. Very tasty in my book.

In the Great Western Pub in Blockley. Of course hardly any carbonation, smooth, golden color, no head, and only a little lacing. It had just a hint of bitters at the finish.
