An exceptionally fine balance of malt and hops give this beer a long dry and extremely satisfying finish.

omhper (23728) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 17, 2002
Sampled cask conditioned. Amber coloured. Fruity aroma, light body. Malt accented with sprkling mouthfeel. The finish is slightly salty but not very bitter. An enjoyable traditional cask bitter.

Hbie (133) - Essex, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 8, 2004 Cask. In fine condition. Amber with white head. Clean hoppy flavour with that distinctive Moorhouse dry twang with bitterness at the end. An interesting brew worth trying. This beer changed after 2 days, it lost most of its bitterness and tasted much sweeter, still pleasant. So initially a hoppy bitter beer becoming sweeter the longer it is served. This is fairly unusual as beers tend to become less sweet but probably explains some of the other comments about lack of hops.

MrWalker (926) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 17, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 10, 2005 Cask @ Oliver Twist, Stockholm
Medium sweet and somewhat peppery well balanced, medium strength bitter. Dry afterwards, but I’m missing the hops. It’s just dry and bitter. Recomendable even so.

BlackHaddock (6394) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2012
Fairly pale amber, almost golden hue, a white foamy head sat on top of this pint served at a Wetherspoons pub in Worcester (Sat 26th Jun 2010). The head produced some impressive lacing as the beer subsided down the glass. The nose was semi-sweet molasses and malted biscuits. The taste was also malty, but the hops came a close second in flavour power, coming stronger as the mouth dried. I thought the body mid-strength and enjoyed the pint.

(Cask at Akkurat, Stockholm) Amber colour with frothy white head. Fruity nose with dark fruit, apricots and earthy hops. Fruity taste with notes of dark fruit and orange marmalade resting on a solid malt foundation. Earthy hops in the finish. Very nice balance. Solid and well made beer.

Cask, Stork Hotel Birkenhead. Light amber colour with a thin white head. Aroma had citrus notes with a definite hint of glue. Good lace. Flavour was quite bright and fruity, with some good hoppage. Medium bitter finish. Not too shabby.
