This golden-brown bitter has a chocolate, toffee and roasted malt aroma, leading to a biscuity flavour and a long, dry hop finish.

Cask, King’s Head, Carlisle. Very smoky flavoured ruby coloured ale. Dry mouthfeel and finish, malty aroma and very much in the Jennings style.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 21, 2010
Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Amber with a small white head. Faint malt aroma. Pleasant sweet malty taste with a little earth to stop it becoming too intense. Some bitterness. Excellent straightforward bitter of the type I always enjoy.

DruncanVeasey (7191) - NUNEATON, Top 18, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2010
The Anchor, Burbage. Pale ruby with a creamy foam. Cinder toffee and cheap coffee granule aroma. Pleasant, coffee-dusted, mild-type brew with a mellow roasted finish and Crunchie afters. Like Snecklifter on form, actually a pretty decent beer. Marstons are yet to destroy this far flung outpost of their empire.

reidyboy (11) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2009
Cask at The Buck’s Head in Church Stretton. Very nice looking russet beer with a thick white head. Hint of malt on the nose, richer mouthfeel than expected and the opposite of thin (not thick, surely?). All in all a pleasant lunch-time pint, approaching a winter warmer.

fiulijn (14599) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 15, 2009
Cask Conditioned at The Bree Louise, London
Dark amber color; foamy head. The aroma is very light, minty if possible. Ordinary caramel flavor and some darker chocolate, correct bitterness. Smooth and round mouthfeel, but mostly boring.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JAN 2, 2009
Cask at the White Horse, 27th Nov 08. Russet with a line of head. Malty, smooth & silky and quite full. Weak aroma. Good sweetness though and enough balancing hops.
