Cask; Regular.
This beer is initially dry and bitter. Full flavoured and complex marmalade / aniseed notes follow which then leave a lingering bitterness on the palate. A classic in its style.

BeerViking (2496) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2014
Cask at the Michael Bacon JDW, blond with a fine white head anda citrus hoppy nose. Powerfully dry-bitter on the palate, yet with an earthy note and an underlying maltiness, it’s almost like an English take on an American IPA.

berkshirejohn (4543) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 19, 2013
Cask at the Old Gaolhouse (JDW), Winchester. Amber with a tight cream head; muted tropical fruit aroma; the taste is also quite muted with more tropical fruit and some grapefruit; then a sharp, short-lived, grapefruity bitterness, before a return to sweet mango finish. An interesting attempt at the American IPA style, but needing more of everything.
