Amber. Beige head. Superb aroma of fine hops, gras, pine, flower fields, cereals and dark caramel. Fine taste, with bitterness and sweet malt balancing each other well.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 31, 2009
Cask at the Cat’s Back, Wandsworth, with tashi, 16th Nov 09. Classic copper bitter looks with a smooth white head. Really does taste like a smooth version of Harveys Sussex Best (no bad thing!) Great balance and very moreish.

MesandSim (7118) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2010
A Mes rate. Cask at the Bree Louise.
Slightly hazy amber colour with a good off white head and plenty of lace. A very pleasant bitter indeed. Slight straw, hay and pig farm. Excellent earthy malt with some hints of burnt sugar. Just the right amount of floral hoppage to balance it all out really well. Finish is so well balanced it almost feels a little dull but it lasts long enough to regain my interest. Good stuff.

Cask handpull at The Rake, Borough. Yeasty and lovely biscuity malt. Good fruit, it’s got some hopo on end. Really pretty good bitter.

(Cask at Pineapple, London) A fruity and hoppy bitter. That’s something you seldom get. I liked this beer. The fruitiness and maltiness were nicely balanced and bitterness wiped both flavours away quite nicely. Bitterness didn’t last too long so the next sip brought all the other flavours back again.
