COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also available bottle conditioned.
A classic English bitter, mid copper in colour with a remarkable complexity of flavour and depth drawn from a combination of five malts and five hop varieties.

Marstonlad (473) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 30, 2014
Cask at the Bear, Oxford. A color of dark amber with a medium-sized head. Aroma has plenty of floral notes and fruitiness, very hoppy in a British way. Taste, on the other hand, seems to be a bit more on the malty side. Caramel and bread provide the bulk of the initial taste with hoppiness building toward a classic dry and bitter finish. Light to medium bodied, slick palate. Very tasty and well balanced bitter.

Amber pour, malty aroma. Nice taste of sweet malt with a hops touch. Very nice to drink

Oakes (12789) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 14, 2014
Golden-amber, a little hazy, a very fruity beer with abundant orchard fruit yeast character. Subtle sweet malts.

Beesbeer (452) - WALES - FEB 20, 2013
A very enjoyable straightforward honest bitter. Medium bodied. Medium carbonation. High on hops and a bitter ending that quickly gives way to citrus sweetness which lasts in the mouth.

AWS9 (506) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 22, 2013
Cask. Solid ruby brown colour, with lasting white head. Fruity nose, with nice hop/malt mix. Pronounced hop hit to go along with the typical smooth finish of a bitter. Plenty of earthy character as well. Great stuff.

Nuffield (3717) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 19, 2012
Rich head, dark red/brown color. Smooth, good body, moderate metallic bitterness, buttery caramel, earthy, a little wood chip. Aroma: a little metal, a little body odor. A spanking beer. (cask at the Rose and Crown, Oxford, June 2012)

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - OCT 26, 2011
Bottled. A hazy brown coloured beer (with the yeast poured in) with an off-white coloured head. A yeasty aroma with a candy sugar note to it. Quite bitter at first but then transgresses to a semi-sweet yeasty beer. Pretty decent.

joe19612 (1934) - camberley, Surrey, ENGLAND - OCT 16, 2011
Cask at Ascot Festival 2011. Pours a clear copper colour with a thin off-white head. The aroma is malty with hints of caramel, the taste is all grapefruit with a long dry bitter finish.

DruncanVeasey (7316) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUL 18, 2011
Wow: nose-smacking hop aroma humming with overripe satsuma, lychee, exotic pollen. A real sniffer. Pours mellow, coppery bronze with a fat, unmoving cream foam and slight veil of haze. Full-bodied and complex with pithy, tropical-hinting hops (pineapple, lychee, orange, grapefruit), robust husky malts and a good dry, lingering bitterness. Green, earthy, flowery burps like a mouthful of Geraniums. Really pleasant, tangily hopped, slightly humming bottle conditioned English. When I was expecting something drab and brown.
