Clear amber brown beer. Light cream coloured head. Softish light palate. Nicely balanced soft malt and reasonable hop presence. A decent bitter but doesn’t quite escape the shackles of English Bitter Blandness syndrome!

harrisoni (17352) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2009
Cask handpull at Fox & Anchor, London. Served a little warm perhaps, but a decent best bitter/red ale. Full red berry fruit, slight strawberry jam edge. It’s an odd bitter, some good fruit. Some yeast character. Deep gold/copper colour. Almost a bit of fruit syrupy malt, but it never gets there. I quite like it, but it never quite resolves itself. Fine.

imdownthepub (13389) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2009
Cask conditioned at The Royal Blenheim, Oxford. Brown with white head. Smooth but slightly dull bitter, malt lead with some toasted bread notes, but little else to carry it. Really not very much left to say about it.

Cask-conditioned at the Commercial Rooms (JDW), Bristol 11/04/10. Dark amber in colour with an off-white head. Bready malts, a touch of sweetness, and brooding, lengthy bitter finish. Not my kind of beer.

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2010
Cask at the Pembury Tavern, November 2009. Copper colour. Initially rather sweet. Somewhat sweaty, moist malt aroma. Good from tangy hops come through on the palate eventually, leading in to a lingering, moderately bitter aftertaste. Ends up pretty decent but a shame the hops didn’t show up a bit sooner.
