A stronger more complex pale ale. Bronze in colour with a fruity nose and full round flavours. The perfect balance between malt and hops.

(Cask at Kitty’s, 20150523) The beer poured deep amber and clear. Its head was medium sized, almost white and it lasted long. Aroma had malts, earth and toffee. Palate was medium bodied with low carbonation. Flavours were earth, sweetness, mild tartness, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet and bitter. A brew that’s not an enjoyment to drink.

BlackHaddock (4964) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2013
Hand-pulled half-pint in ’The Old Blenheim’ Oxford on 23rd Nov 13, the pub crawl was in full swing when this arrived in front of me. Copper bronze body with a white crown that produced some good lacing as the beer level dropped. The nose was of sweet grains with yeast and fruit esters. The taste was a good blend of flavours, nothing strong, powerful or original: just a well balanced Pale Ale with enough hops to keep the sweet malts in check and give a dry, semi-bitter finish. Overall a pleasant half pint: I’d have had another, but we were on a mission and couldn’t linger longer on a single beer or pub.

Erasmus_ro (1923) - Alabama, USA - AUG 25, 2013
Cask @ Piries Bar, Horsham, 22/08/13. Pours a copperish orange with a small, but firm and beautiful, white head that leaves lacing very nicely. Aroma is yeasty, freshly baked, fluffy sweetbfead. Taste is a nice caramel, bready with a lot of floweriness. Light touch of berries too. Smooth with not much carbonation. Quite full, superbly smooth. Very quaffable.

jackl (5812) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 21, 2013
Cask @ The Wenlock. Medium amber with a small white head. The nose is red berry, toasted bread. Sweet brown sugar accents. Hints of cocoa. Earthy dirt and straw. The taste is quite sweet indeed. Loads of grape flavor. Artificial grape fruit by the foot. More caramel. Light husky grain. Some grassy hop. Medium body, fine carbonation. Overall, pretty good if a touch sweet. A completely acceptable bitter. Nice.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2013
Cask conditioned handpump Prince George Brighton 20/05/13. A hazy amber coloured beer with a white head and lace. A sweet fruity beer with berry notes throughout. Drinkably sweet where the sweetness seems to eminate from the chosen hops rather than the malts. Nice enough.

ManVsBeer (5968) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 23, 2013
A golden-copper coloured ale, with a small frothy head as well as a sweet aroma.

leaparsons (8910) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2012
Cask, The Salmon, Leicester. Amber with an off white foam. Aromas are toffee and weetabix with earthy hops and autumnal pear. Some raisins with soft spices. Flavours are malty with dry, black tea and hints of blackberry. Earthy and dry to finish. Not bad.

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 18, 2012
Cask (handpump) at the Kean’s Head, Nottingham on 13 July 2012. Orangey colour. Clear with a thin white head. A little bit of sweetness on the palate. Mainly fruity throughout. Not really enough hop presence to justify the IPA moniker. Pleasant enough though.
