Cask at Land of Liberty & Plenty pub in Chorleywood. A copper coloured ale with a small head. Malty aroma. Fruity taste, slightly hoppy, lacking in complexity, a rather bland ale.

Gravity cask at the Harpenden Beer Festival 26 Jun 09. Crystal-clear reddish brown bitter with small whitish head. Nutty malt aromas initially then beer becomes very bitter. Softly textured mouthfeel and a dry, bitter finish. Quality was very good indeed at this festival, and I have not awarded the high rating lightly.

Clear and deep copper coloured with a brownish tint. Thin layer of foam. Ripe fruit notes in aroma. Moderate bitter sweet flavour with a component of dark berries and malty hints behind. Rounded taste. An average English bitter (Half on gravity at The St Albans Beer Festival, 28.09.2006).

A Mes rate: Cask at a JDW somewhere. Almost very good but there is an awful metalic overtone that hangs around like a bad smell. Nose is actually pretty good. Delicate spice and some vanilla and just a dab of tobacco. Copper colour. Reasonably hoppy and malty and that is pretty much it really. Slight sweetness and some berries. Not the most complex of beers. Looking at the rest of the rates and no one mentioning the strong metal that I noted, then I think there may have been something wrong with my sample. I ended up feeling like i had bitten my lip and I had blood in my mouth.

Cask, Derby Winter Fest 06. Brown and red with a bubbly head. Aromas are malty with chocolate and berries has a decent level of hopping. Flavours are properly malty with berries. Sweet and fruity with a slight sourness on the finish. Decent.

Much improved over previous samples of it - above average. Nice colour, and pleasant hoppiness - malty too, but in perfect balance.

Cask @ Oxford Beer Festival, UK Backlog 23 Oct 2004
Not my kind of bitter. Though it didn’t taste of any squirrels it was still somewhat odd. Maybe woodsy is a word to describe the taste.
