Traditional, amber session ale with a flavoursome malt character and lively hoppy finish. A beer that will be talked about for generations.

amhart88 (107) - Manchester, Lancashire, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2016
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2016 Amber ale. Zest, oranges. Autumn, woods, hint of pine. Lingering sweetness - tangerines etc offset by a bitter kick. Well balanced and easy drinking. Very nice

The_Osprey (6607) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2016
Cask handpull at The Crosse Keys Bishopsgate as ’Nottingham Legend’, 4%. Love the old pump clip. Dark amber orange, still, translucent, bubbly beige head. Aroma is bread crusts, apple, straw, honeyish malt. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is bread crusts with salted butter, light dried flowers, dusty bitterness, almost salty in the finish. A classic full flavoured bitter. Not modern flavours, but floats my boat.

BlackHaddock (6384) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2016
2nd Sep 2016: gravity poured half-pint in The Wrekin Inn, Wellington Shropshire. Good amber colour, thin off-white head. Caramel lead to the nose and taste, mild hop balance but malty molasses rule the brew from start to finish.

theprof (527) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 2, 2016
Cask. Earthy hoppy aroma. Pours copper with thin lace top. No great taste, although the water has had malt and hops added. You could have a session of this if you were determined enough and were drinking to forget. Given the quality of other Nottingham ales this one is a puzzle.

Rune (11365) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 7, 2015
Cask, half at The Lion and Key in Hull. Clear dark golden body. Tiny head that laced well. Leafy hops on the nose. Taste of mild caramel, dark wheat and leafy hops. Drying ending with a bitter touch. Soft in the mouth. Pretty average (shared with Finn, 25.11.2015).

Cask in the Generous Britton, Loughborough. Amber with an off white head. The taste is light citrus and a touch of pepper. Medium body. Bland but drinkable.
