COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottled & Cask - Regular.;
A very moreish rosy brown beer. Quite a simple brew for those who like their beer mild and fruity with flavours of malt and toffee blending well with a pleasant light bitterness.

strawman (26) - - FEB 26, 2013
Cask, Hartlepool. Light copper colour, certainly not brown. Sweet malt on the palate, but my problem with this was a serious one. An overpowerring smell of Isinglas finings, and also a slight taste of the same. The beer was exceptionally clear, but there was clearly too much isinglas added to the gyle. Put me off having any more.

Cask at The Antelope in Surbiton. Very malty without too much hop, hints of toffee and chocolate. Would be better if the body was fuller but still a good pint.

dogbomb (917) - ENGLAND - JAN 12, 2014
Bottle. Itís definitely brown (russet) with a decent off-white head. Nose is nutty and malty cereals. Thereís a little chocolate in the taste, more nuts (hazelnuts), touch of toffee and itís all a little dry. Sharp, short bitterish finish. Quite a decent brown ale, all told :)
