chriso (7344) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 22, 2005
An excellent grippy best bitter from a new brewery. Copper colour. Very dry and distinctly bitter. Oodles of sharp, tangy hops. OK, its not laden with multi-layered complexity, but what it does, it does very well. Cask (gravity dispense), Reading Beer Festival 2005.

haddonsman (1234) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2007
Cask (Morley Hayes Golf Club) 2006-7. Robust, no-nonsense bitter. Sharp hop, dry bitters; for ages this was the only Peak beer you could get as they concentrated on getting one beer to be spot on. And indeed it is. To have it on cask at my 19th hole makes it even better.

johndoughty (3716) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 21, 2006
Bottled. Orange appearance with lots of bitternes. Some presence of hops with a lingering dry bitter aftertaste. Definitely above average.
