Bottle, picked up at Saltaire Wines, Saltaire, West Yorkshire 04-05-07. Poured copper coloured, with a nice light floral aroma, tasted a little fruity and hoppy, nice bitterness, very easy quaffing beer that whilst not offering an awful lot to the discerning palate was a nice easy drinking bitter.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. A copper colored beer with a thin off-white head. The aroma is of caramel, cream, herbs, and a bit of hops. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of caramel, but also some cream - a bit like candy, but soon a very bitter hoppy note comes along with a light note of herbs. The bitterness runs along the side of the tongue, and leaves it very dry in the end.

UPDATED: JUL 26, 2008 Cask handpull at Folkestone Wetherspoons. Copper colour with lasting bubbly off white head. Very earthy Fuggles through out. Really quite bitter on finish, bit of blue cheese too, in fact really quite stiltony. Malt is ok, but cold back the hop up more. Lovely blue cheese, would go well with crackers, this pint. Really quite bitter and drying. Good condition and tasted fresh.3.6/5.0 Re-rate at Kent BF 08. Brilliant malty session bitter that just isn’t made now. Nothing flashy but it’s just great, lovely subtle fruit
