A classic Cornish bitter - mid strength - amber in colour, beautifully balanced with a smooth finish, serve chilled if prefered. Visibility good - becoming poor!

imdownthepub (13396) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2011
Cask conditioned at The Lamb & Flag, Oxford. Amber with white head. There is a slightly farmy note initially, quite eggy, quite a bitter edge. This becomes quite fruity, fullish, malty, developing a mooreish quality. Pretty decent.

50cl bottle from Dr.Ink of Fulham. Golden amber with a ring of white head; aroma of earthy malts and also peaches; full-bodied with a crisp malt flavour; the finish has biscuit and crystalised pineapple. An interesting bitter.

Oakes (15806) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 6, 2010
Cask, British Lion, Devizes. Golden-amber. Spicy hop aroma maybe with a hint of pedio in this sample. Earthy-spicy hop character and some nice, rich breadcrusty malts.

Beershine (5224) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - SEP 2, 2010
cask @ The British Lion, Devizes. Medium-amber with thick frothy head. Nicely hopped aroma is flawed by some pedio. Soft palate with a strange aftertaste like hydrogen peroxide. The beer is dirty in places and probably not in the best condition but it’s still not bad. Has a nice fruity malt character.
