Brewed from an all-British malt grist and only the finest, traditional aroma hop varieties. Containing 5% alcohol and packed with flavour, it has the immediate stamp of quality beer.

tombyars (1556) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - FEB 28, 2012
First tasted this in Gabriels, Paisley in April 1998. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear pale russet in colour with a thin white head. Floral hop present in the short aroma. Very thin, resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt base gives a thin digestive biscuit base with weak barley sugar and dilute redcurrant flavours. Spicy prickle of hop resins evident in the dry bitter aftertaste. Weak malty finish is rather disappointing with little body or complexity for a 5%. A poor ESB.

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 23, 2006
Cask (handpump) at the Castle, Manchester, circa 2001. I’m departing from my normal practice of not entering pre-Ratebeer notes as I’m pretty sure this beer is retired. Quite pale in colour, but fairly traditional in chracter. Medium body. Pale malt and light fruit. Some citric hop but mainly dry, soft bitterness. Fairly well balanced but not very weighty for a 5% beer.

imdownthepub (12605) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 18, 2003
Cask Conditioned at The Hole in th' Wall, Bowness on Windermere, Cumbria. Golden amber beer with middling pale head. Crisp maltiness predominates, with a slight fruity sweetness, maybe apricot. Little hop character gets through the mass of malt.

omhper (22631) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 19, 2002
Sampled cask conditioned at Castle Inn, Manchester.
Pale golden. Lightly flowery aroma. Rather sweet and fruity. Despite containing more alcohol then other Manchester bitters it still feels lighter.
