nuplastikk (4334) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 12, 2011
Cask at BP Dupont. Orange-brown. Filtered/fined. Soapy, frothy head. Fishy English aroma. Caramel toffee tones, no C02, all cask feel. Tastes refreshingly English but rather boring and lacking in the hop department. Watery, awkward caramel/toffee tones. Unexceptional.

Very light bitter, malty notes upfront, slightly creamy. Nice on cask - refreshing - very light hops.

Travlr (11078) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 8, 2011
Cask at Churchkey. Sparkler used. Reminds me of the days I lived almost in the shadow of the brewery, in Barton Mills, not far from Bury. Clear golden color, thick white head (that’s the sparkler at work). Aroma of lemon peel and citrus. Sweet start, followed by a soft bitterness with a bit of lemon peel. Very pleasant stuff, a perfect session beer.

Cask at the Wharf. A dark amber beer, some white bubbles on top. Clear body. The aroma is bready with a fruity touch. Some cider like notes. The flavor is bready with a cider like sourness. Quite dry. Some bitterness. A rather strange one, at least the cider like notes. 110417

McWorta (574) - LUXEMBOURG - OCT 10, 2010
Soft pillow head, smells of faint hops and barley with some hay. Nice white header and a solid beautiful bronze colour. Crispy bitter, with an oily sweetness to it. A bit oily, crips on the tip of the tongue, tastes of roasted barley, toffee hints. Well balanced late afternoon pint.
