wheresthepath (1469) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 2, 2013
[500ml bottle rebadged for National Trust "A La Ronde Best" that my Dad shared with me - cheers!] A slightly hazy effervescent amber bitter with a large cream head. Good mouthfeel - a bottle conditioned ale that actually achieves the mouthfeel of cask ale. Orange and lots of bread yeast up front, with some herbs. Rather astringent in the finish, with a spicy, earthy bitterness afterwards. I liked it initially but swiftly went off it and struggled to finish it.

Bottle 500ml.

Clear medium orange colour with a small, virtually none, fair lacing, fully diminishing, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, nutty, caramel, dusty malt, victorian furniture. Flavour is moderate sweet and light acidic with a average to long duration, dry, caramel, thin fruity tart. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is flat. [20120805]

imdownthepub (9651) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2012
Cask conditioned at The Royal Blenheim, Oxford. Reddish amber with slight head. Quite a thinnish beer with a grainy fruity background. Light, earthy hop note. Pretty average.

BlackHaddock (3183) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2012
Feb 2010: known as Red Rock Traditional Bitter back then! 500ml brown bottle, the beer is bottle conditioned so it was poured slowly and carefully into my vase shaped pint glass (Old Speckled Hen badged). The beer had a slight haze to its appearance, even though I thought I’d managed to keep all of the sediment in the bottle. The beer was a lovelly copper colour, a fine foaming off-white head sat on top. The head left some heavy lacing as the beer sank in the glass, I like to see that, shows good conditioning in my opinion. Hops aromas hit the nose and they certainly give the beer a typical English Bitter flavour, meaning a bitterness to the ale. Simple and pleasant, the 4.2%ABV suits it, a good session bitter.

ALLOVATE (2281) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 27, 2011
Out the bottle, cool not cold. There is a subtle haze to it on a careful pour, yeast pack is loose. Solid, compact white crown holds on and laces well. Complex malt and hop nose, quite pronounced, with hints of toffee, wood, Anzac biscuits, tangerines and apricots, rose petals, dusty earth and Bee pollen. Good body, soft rounded mouthfeel with a smooth full finish. Quite nutty and weedy with a lot of bitter, underripe fruit coming through. Long malt, pine, wood and herbal swallow. Quite raw in flavour with biscuity toasted grains keeping it level. Some tangy citrus builds. Extremely quaffable and give off more than its modest ABV. Great stuff, another outstanding beer from this brewer. (50cL, BBE 06/12, Bridge House Cellars, Exmouth, Devon)

Cask-conditoned at the Imperial (JDW), Exeter 25/07/09. Pale amber with a slight white head. Aroma of summer fruit, citrus and a touch of floral hops. Flavour of biscuit malts, with more fruit and a dry finish. Good, easy drinking.

dnas2 (705) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2009
(Bottled) The most carbonated beer I’ve ever come across (either that or it was dropped in the warehouse!) Fizzed out on opening. Cloudy with a very big head and copper colour. Lots of malt in the scent and roasted nuts also in the nose. There’s also some winter fruit and burnt sugar. In the mouth, quite thin with a silky mouthfeel. Lots of bitterness but also quite a bit of sugar. Tastes stronger than it is. The mouth doesn’t last long but includes berries and some earth. Slightly acidic note, possibly from the CO2.
