jjsint (2377) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - OCT 23, 2015
Gravity cask at the Old Transporter Ale House, Henlow Camp. Honey brown, thin-looking, clear and flat. Light woody aroma. Taste is sweet, floral and fruity but not particularly engaging. Weak and thin body. I just canít get very excited about this, a pretty boring bitter really.

a_cross (639) - Poole, Dorset, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2013
Bottle; amber-brown, clear; malty, toffeeish aroma; sweetish malty caramel taste, maybe some butter, but not too obtrusive; some earthy English hops give balance; quite thick; fresh, decent bitter.

jmgreenuk (7838) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - APR 16, 2013
Bottle from Stirchley Wines, Birmingham. Poured a clear chestnut brown with a thin broken off white head. The aroma is fresh, big fruit and malt. Itís one of the nicest English ales Iíve ever smelled. The flavour is slightly weak medium bitter, with lots of malt on the palate. A very tasty beer. A super English ale.
