Cask; Regular.
B rewed at OG 1042 and ABV 4.3%. A crisp clean, refreshing bitter, deep amber in colour, well balanced with a fruity blackcurrant nose. Bitter flavour. Our brewer’s recipe, which proves he certainly deserved his Brewer’s Certificate.

Leighton (13576) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2011
Cask at the Crosse Keys, JDW. Pours a cloudy amber with a fine, whitish head. Bready malt nose. Lightly sweet flavor, bit of yeast, slight wood, dough. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Kind of bland finish, light sugars, dough and yeast, faint herbal and earthy bitterness. Condition is lacking but it might not matter much here. Average at best.

flying_pig (1097) - SCOTLAND - JUN 16, 2011
A nice, summery and drinkable despite not being my usual style preference. The bitter was a little to strong although this didn’t take too much away from the overall experience. Average al round and probably not one I would seek out again. * * * 1001 Beers to try before you die: * * *

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 24, 2009
A Mes rate. Cask at GBBF.
Clean amber gold with no real head to speak of. Rather sweet nutty malt dominates. Plenty of caramel, some fruit and a hint of spice in the finish. Dull and uneventful.
