Cask handpull at County Hotel, JDW, Ashford. Copper colour with lasting beige head, now that all Wetherspoons seem to use tight sparklers. Satisfying hoppy beer. Maybe a bit of US hop. Quite creamy and full. Some red fruit malt flavour. Very decent bitter with bitter hop on end. Rather good.

Cask conditioned at Merton Beer Festival ’07. Sl hazed amber with white head. Decent session type bitter with no outstanding flavours, just a solid malty hoppy bitter. Reasonably bitter finish, refreshing and simple.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at Merton Summer Beer Festival 07-07-07. Poured copper with a slight haze, this was really quite nice, good solid malty base but quite rich flavourful beer, nice hoppiness and the bitterness was there as well. Whilst this wasn’t outstanding this ticked all the right boxes for me and was a jolly decent beer.

Bottle, bought @ METRO, Kolding.
Hazy amber with a big, frothy, off-white head. Lots of bubbles in the liquid. Aroma has good caramel, some red berries, light sweetness, hay, grassy and floral hops. A bit of cardboard. Highish carbonation, fair creamy mouthfeel - especially for the ABV. Flavour is mild, good doughy caramel base with some fine grassy and piney hops notes with a firm bitterness. Fine bitter.
