COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
"A fruity amber beer with more than a hint of hops. The bitterness carries on in the aftertaste. A superb session beer."

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 19, 2007
Cask at ’Spoons, Milton Keynes. Gold with a white head. Sulphurous nose. Biscuity malt taste with some light bitterness to finish. Not very exciting at all. Rather against the grain, I’ve rated three previous Mordue beers at 4.0, 3.7 and 3.7. This, in my opinion, is by far the poorest.

MesandSim (7118) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 25, 2006
A Mes rate: Cask at Victoria Station JDW. Tastes like cold tea to me. Notes of fresh hops that are almost sweet, yes I know it’s an oxymoron but whatever. Reasonable bitter finish. Unpleasant off character in the aroma.

Mungo (2471) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - OCT 24, 2006
Cask Conditioned @ Standing Order (JDW), Soton. Very light malt, hops quite vague which leaves the slight sulphurous yeast the main focus. Fairly dry and moderately refreshing but the yeast is present throughout.

harrisoni (13897) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 23, 2006
Cask handpull at Wetherspoon’s Folkestone. Slight haze with a copper colour and a bubbly beige head. Quite a lovely hop aroma, bit of malty fruit. Malt is a little syrupy in mouth. Palate is odd. Bit medicinal. Finish has goodish hop, drying. Shame, as I like Mordue beers, but th malt isn’t right on this and the hop is too drying on the end to be balanced.

Skinnyviking (7159) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 20, 2006
Draught. Small white head. Clear golden body. Roasted malt aroma. Very light and easy to drink. Too ananomous with insuffiicient bitterness. A disapointment.

Cask Handpump at the Rat & Ratchet, Huddersfield 26/07/2003 Clear golden coloured with some citrus aroma. Slightly dry malt hop finish.

[Cask conditioned] Fruity aroma and flavour. The finish is rather hoppy and bitter. Quite nice.

rauchbier (3620) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2004
Cask, GBBF 2004. Gold, low white head and gentle condition. Faint hop in the aroma, delicate hop and caramel in the mouth and hops more dominant in the finish.

SilkTork (5236) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 6, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 26, 2009 August, 2004 Hand pump. GBBF. Clean, crisp session bitter. Some dusty hops. Refreshing and dry. Tasty enough. [3.1]
Nov, 2009 JDW, Rochester. Pale biscuity sweet session bitter with floral hops, hint of citric fruit and blackberries. Very nice - perhaps a touch too sweet. [3.1]
