Tap @ The Shipwrights Inn. Pours cloudy amber with a small off white head. Aroma sweet malty, fruity, floral and slightly hoppy. Flavor is fruity, citric, a bit sweet and bitter. Finishes dryish bitter.

tommann (3307) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2011
Cask at the Bridge, Kingswinford. Pours a hazy gold copper with a medium head. Aroma is bread and a little apple. Taste is mostly bready malt with some apple on the finish.

MiP (15253) - SÝnderborg, 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 (115) - 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 (2379) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 6, 2011
Dark amber in colour, aroma is floral and some malt. On the taste I have to say itís one of those thin in the mouth feel English bitters like Shepherd Neameís 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 Iíll 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.

harbert (100) - leiden, NETHERLANDS - DEC 5, 2010
floral aromas with cut grass and fresh hay, a touch of smokiness leeds to the pear of the fruity hops. nice dry finish

Vladivostok (433) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - SEP 27, 2010
I have drunk this in many places - usually Hobsonís choice - and it never strikes me as being a great or even a good beer. Little aroma and very, very bland. One can give Marstonís the credit for maintaining production at Cockermouth but they really should be putting out something with a bit more oomph than this.

pivnizub (10102) - Bochum, PorķřŪ, GERMANY - AUG 11, 2010
Cask (Saddle Inn, Keswick, York): A bit unclear, deep golden, "woody" hoppy nose with a subtle fruitiness; very light bodied, moderate bitter-sweet flavour; a certain fruitiness plus herbal hops in the dry finish. O.K......
