COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Regular.
"A distinctive, mid-brown bitter ale, with all the hoppy aroma you’d expect of a beer brewed in the heart of the hop country. Well balanced, with a taste that’s been described as "wonderfully aggressive, tinged with sweetness". "

Appearance is clear and amber, a white frothy head of about half a finger, which lasts well. Aroma- malty, some hops, toffee and raisin hints. Taste- bitterness, definite hop presence, fruity hints, slight toffee, almost vinous in the background, thin mouthfeel. A reliable ale.

Pizd (432) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2013
(Cask, GBBF 2013): Clear copper in colour, medium head. Weak aroma of fruit, caramel, malt. However, taste is really well balanced. Malt, fruit, caramel, grass and slight hop notes come through. Not bad, a little on the flat side though.

Beer4000 (4565) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 13, 2013
Cask @ The Alma, Painters Forsdal, Kent. A clear, deep golden body with a fast disappearing off-white head. Rather mild in aroma mainly from light roasted caramel malt. Flavor is cask soft caramel malt, a bit fruity and moderate bitterness. Medium body and medium strength aftertaste. Totally OK session ale, but frankly rather straight forward.
