Cask conditioned handpump Coach & Horses Wellingborough A dark brown to chestnut coloured beer with an off-white head. The aroma is malty and fruity with some roast qualities and a bit of chocolate. The taste is similar and there are some good fruity hoppy notes too. A tasty well flavoured beer.

ladnewton (1439) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2009
Cask at the Cask Pub & Kitchen, London on 13th November 2009. Amber with diminishing off white head. Grassy hop aromas are tempered by a cookie biscuity maltiness. The two do not fight or cancel each other out, but flavour the beer harmoniously side by side to give a delicious easy drinking ale just over session strength. pleasant, slightly zingy mouthfeel and a hoppy finish. A good pint.

Leighton (11322) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 9, 2010
Cask at the Euston Tap. Pours clear amber with a soft, white head. Aroma holds some toasted malts, light berry fruits and some twiggy, earthy hops. Moderately sweet, with faint hints of caramel and toffee, some lightly toasted malts, followed by earth and grass bitters. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly dry, earthen hop finish with off-setting, malty sweetness. Nicely balanced all around. Solid.

imdownthepub (10467) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2008
Cask conditioned at The Woolpack, Banbury. Red amber with white head. After a bad run of beers, its nice to get back amongst a decent one. Good tangy bitter with a medium body of slightly darker roasted malt and a reasonable hoppy, bitter finish. Happy with this.
