Cask; Regular.

A moreish deep-amber bitter with sumptuous nutty malts and gently floral hops. This is classic English ale, with satisfying biscuit and cereal notes setting up a refreshingly sharp, fruity finish.

leaparsons (9843) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2010
Cask, Newark Winter Fest 10. Hazy bronze with a small head. Aromas are earthy hops and weetabix malts with some nuttiness. Flavours are sweet biscuit, toffee and weetabix malts with nutty notes. Peppery on the finish. Not bad.

gary07734 (500) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2009
Pours a dark side of copper, not much head. Taste is roasted and nutty, a little sweet but followed by a decent straw/grain bitter finish. Nice enough.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 12, 2009
Cask at ’Spoons, Milton Keynes. Copper with an off white head. Doghair malt aroma. Malt and a painty sourness in the taste. The bitterness is a bit woolly. Clunking, heavy handed beer, but not without some appeal.

Fin (9594) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 8, 2008
Cask at FFTMC. Oxford, 06-09-08 Roasty bitter malty taste with some digestive biscuit. This is a nicy tangy beer, interesting after the sweetness of the Potbelly Yeller Belly. Pours mid amber with a tiny white head.

Fukito (1018) - Santiago, CHILE - DEC 27, 2007
Cask @ 3 Legge Mare, november 07. Deep golden color with some orange hues and a medium white creamy head (sparkler). Roasted peanuts flavor with some raisiny, cereal notes. Medium to light palate, some fruits with a salty finnish. Sulphur notes on the nose with some slight fruitiness but not that nice. Ok, decent, copper bitter.
