Cask; Regular.
A light amber best bitter with a fresh malt and peppery hop aroma. Balanced malt and the hop presence lead to a pleasantly dry and clean finish.

Bottle.Slightly cloudy which put me off. After that it wasn’t too bad. Poured with a medium head and a slight hopppiness. Profoundly bitter and quite pleasant although the initial appearance didn’t really help.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - NOV 4, 2006
Cask Conditioned at the Market Porter, Borough, London. Chestnut colour with large beige head. Full bitter flavour, good value bitter that drinks well from top to bottom. The bitter bite holds your attention and demands quaffing.

Rich hoppy malt nose is intriguing. Mellow mouthfeel. Slow lingering finish. The actual taste of the stuff didn’t leave much of a mark though.

chriso (7475) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2005
A very impressive amber coloured best bitter. A distinctly dry beer with some full malts in the aroma, plenty of tangy hop on the palate and a rasping bitterness on the finish. Crisp and refreshing. Cask (handpump), Bankes Arms, Studland.
