imdownthepub (11135) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2009
Cask conditioned at The Market Porter, Borough. Amber with white head. Quite a standard bitter with a sweetish character. Some hops but not outstandingly so. It’s ok.

Cask (Bree Louise, London)
Very sulpurous aroma. Stinky hops. Big grainy body. Not so good, as it’s a bit too sulphurous.

Bottle: Light reddish-amber coloured, almost clear, creamy and stable off-White head; caramelly and fruity nose; light bitter-sweet flavour, light bodied, as well; more bitterness detectable in the all in all dark-malty and fruity finish. Nothing wrong with it, just a bit boring...

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - NOV 30, 2009
Cask conditioned handpump Harp London. An amber coloured beer with sweet notes and caramel. Yeasty and peppery in a Harveys way like the Wandle, but again it’’s not in Harveys’ class. A touch of berry fruitiness to give it a little interest.

MoritzF (8676) - Bochum, GERMANY - MAY 31, 2014
(bottle) Clear, dark amber colour with a short and tanned foamy head. Slightly ashy malty aroma with notes of caramel, accompanied by slightly grassy and subtle fruity hops. Moderately sweet and slightly bitter flavour, light bodied with a soft carbonation. Mildly roasted malty taste with notes of caramel, bread crusts and ashes, combined with lighter spicy and slightly grassy hoppy accents; bitter-sweet and slightly roasted malty finish with spicy and delicately fruity hops. Unspectacular but likeable. 16.IV.14

Cask, The Salmon, Leicester. Hazy amber brown with an off white foam. Aromas are toffee and oranges with floral, yeasty notes. Nutty black tea with hints of melon. Lightly spiced with autumn fruit. Flavours are weetabix malts with green apple and a clean, herbal, leafy character. Spicy with lemony yeast and a nutty, tea finish. Nice.
