A distinctively darker bitter brewed with malt made from Maris Otter barley and the careful addition of amber malt, to give a nutty flavour that supports a subtle blend of English aromatic hops.

Cask, half pint at the excellent Roscoe Head. Crystal clear, dark brown body. Tiny layer blanketing the glassware. Mild, roasted malty aroma, semi sweet. Roasted malty taste with nuts and caramel added by fruity hops. Smooth bitter ending. A good, low alcohol, bitter (Liverpool, 07.04.2013).

Not terrible, but not great either; however I have a feeling it varies a lot from place to place so I may revise this on a re-tasting.

tombyars (1352) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - FEB 1, 2012
First tasted this in Coanes, Johnstone in June 1993. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear amber in colour with a thin white head. Slight aroma of toffee short in intensity. Thin mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malts give a robust digestive biscuit note to the base with sweet toffee and barley sugar present. Dusty hop prickle present in the resiny aftertaste. Finish is slightly malty with sweet golden syrup notes present. An ok session bitter.

ralphdot (982) - Billingham, Durham, ENGLAND - JAN 22, 2012
3.5% amber colour with a good head, hop and malt aroma, very nice malty bitter taste, very easy to drink.

AleManTom (195) - Chapel en le Frith, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - AUG 1, 2011
Domination of malt with little in the way of hops. Roasted caramel side to it, not a bad beer.
