ladnewton (1815) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2014
Cask at St Radegund, Cambridge on 19th February 2014. Clear copper with shallow, loose off-white foam. Sweet malty aroma with leafy notes and pungent earthiness. Leafy hop in-mouth with floral notes and caramel malts. A sweet, fruity finish. Very light, smooth mouthfeel and medium body. Half a pint was "just about enough".

On tap at the Cricketers, Clavering. Pours copper with fairly frothy head. Iron and hop aroma. Pleasantly bitter and refreshing taste - good session beer.

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2010
Cask (gravity dispense) at Chelmsford Winter Beer Festival, 4 February 2010. The commercial description says all you need to know really. Fairly chewy for a low ABV bitter. Mainly malty with some sweet caramel notes. Low on hops. Middle of the road stuff that didn’t leave much of an impression.

berkshirejohn (6078) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 19, 2010
Cask at the Cambridge Blue, Cambridge. Bright gold in colour with a loose white head; malty aroma; chewy malts and crisp apple flavours; and an elegant, dry, flowery, hop finish. Light and refreshing and (probably) just what a rambler needs.

wheresthepath (2139) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - FEB 9, 2009
[500ml bottle, gift from Maureen & Dave - cheers! They said they’d got it at St Alban’s farmer’s market] Pours amber with a negligible white head. A light, spritzy session bitter with a light malt flavour and a hint of floral hops. Finish is short and a little watery. Easy drinking and refrshing, but instantly forgettable. Having said that, it does do exactly what the name suggests - as a regular hiker myself, this would be exactly the sort of beer I’d welcome mid-walk.
