COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Seasonal - August.
A very quaffable light coloured but full flavoured beer. A pronounced bitterness compliments subtle malty flavours to give a sharp refreshing character to this beer.

harrisoni (12674) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2008
Cask at GBBF 08. Gold, lasting creamy head. Bit of Burton snatch on the aroma. Some biscuit, faint hop on end. Let’s say that Hoggy is a better night watchman than this is a bitter.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2008
Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Gold with a small white head. Odd, slightly ashy aroma develops into sweet maltiness. Taste begins with a distinct blackcurrant fruitiness, quickly replaced a grainy, biscuity taste with a sharp bitterness. Lots of flavour. Unusual beer, which I quite liked. Incidentally the pumpclip makes it seem that the brewer is ’Hoggys’. The ’Marstons’ logo is small and insignificant, as if they have something to hide.

maeib (8391) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - AUG 4, 2008
Cask conditioned - handpump - Wig & Pen, Northampton. A golden coloured beer with white head and lacing. Some Burton sulphur in the nose and slightly less in the mouth. There is some decent bitterness. A perfectly acceptable reasonable beer.

dj (467) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 13, 2007
Cask hand-pump at a Marston’s pub in Wakefield 20/08/2007.A golden colour with a medium-sized head. A musty aroma. A floral hoppy taste with a touch of malt. An easy-drinking bitter, but not very exciting.

Flavor is light to moderate sweet and light bitter with a average duration. Body is light to medium, texture is watery, carbonation is flat. A bit borring (090807)

Svesse (5867) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - SEP 12, 2007
(Cask at Market Porter, Southwark, London, 11 Aug 2007) Amber colour with almost no head, cloudy. Malty, nutty nose with earthy hops. Malty, nutty taste with notes of orange and slightly earthy hops in the finish. Hints of butterscotch shining through, a bit flat. Probably not in top form.

imdownthepub (9623) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2007
Cask conditioned at The Three Merry Lads, Cutthorpe, Derbys. Gold with white head. Obviously this was better than at GBBF, but most beers tend to be. Good lively hoppy bitter with deep smooth base, refreshing bitterness, clean and bright. Enjoyed it.
