Cask, Regular;
An auburn beer with rich complex flavours and a deep red glow. The sweet maltiness is balanced with spicy hop aromas and a dry finish. Definitely a pint to savour.

Cask conditioned at The New Inn, Littlehampton, W.Sussex. Brown with white head. This starts off fairly nutty in character, some sweetness then turning towards bitterness. It’s okay.

Beer5000 (5900) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 1, 2016
Cask @ South Western Arms, Southampton. Unclear amber body with a small off-white head. Aroma is malt, caramel and toffee. Flavor is light and smooth with the same flavor as aroma. Low bitterness. Easy and smooth, but not much exiting, the name must be the most exciting part here.

This was a very flavoursome drink, with a very pleasant aftertaste that lingered on the tongue.

Cask at the Rose and Crown, Sandhurst. Chestnut with a scummy cream head; malty aroma with some orange fruit; silky in the mouth, with a sweet caramel malt taste; and some spicy toffee and warmth to the finish. Satisfying.

Reddish brown, clear ale with a sweet aroma. It has an acute strong taste that lingers. Although there’s some in the nose there’s no real fruits in its flavour. No head.
