worldbeertaste (1778) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2011
Brown copper colour with thin white head. Fruity apple and hop aroma. Thin body. Sweet taste of apple juice, with a hop bitter aftertaste and a light citrus feel. Leaning more to the sweet than the bitter or sour. Little bit of caramel and malt but mostly sweet apple.

Cask at the Market Porter, 4th October 2012. Nice beer, you can taste the malt with a caramel undertone. Not bad

MiP (14562) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - APR 22, 2011
Cask. No aroma. Almost clear dark amber colour. Creamy flavour, mild nut not, hint of grassy hops. Subtle combination, but not bad.

invinoveritas (39) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2011
Pint from cask. Pours bright gold with a fair, creamy head. Aroma is intensely unpleasant - smells of vomit. Some ester notes also, and these carry through to the taste, which is of blueberries mixed with Perrier water. Not all that great.

EdKing (2230) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 6, 2011
Dark amber in colour, aroma is floral and some malt. On the taste I have to say it’s one of those thin in the mouth feel English bitters like Shepherd Neame’s Spitfire. Find them a bit watery and lacking body on the palate. this is the same. Also quite intensely dry and bitter on the finish. Not one I’ll have again.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2011
Cask at Bedford Athletic Rugby Club. Amber with a white head. Grainy malt aroma and taste with some straw and sourness. Sharp bitter finish. Makes a welcome change to GK IPA as the guest ale at this Midlands 1 East Rugby Club. But got beat by Leighton Buzzard today.
