jmgreenuk (3580) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 27, 2012
Cask at the Tontine Hotel, Ironbridge. This reminds me of the beer my Dad used to drink, but better. A classic English bitter that begs to be served on the warm side. It hardly touches the back of my throat! The slightly fruity aftertaste is its signature. Pour me another Landlord! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

imdownthepub (9636) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2008
Cask conditioned at Banbury Beer Fest ’08. Amber with no head. Pretty straightforward, up and down dry bitter. Malty, biscuity with a modicum of hops. Probably Fin is right here, it doesn’t travel too well.

Fin (7035) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 22, 2007
Cask at the Admiral Benbow, Shrewsbury, Salop, 19-10-07 Another corker from Stonehouse, looking at some of their ratings one can only conclude they either don’t travel too well, I had them quite close to their stomping ground, or this pub was keeping them in tip top nick, I think a combination of the two maybe. This beer poured amber again it had that soft malty aroma of its stronger stablemate Cambrian Gold. The taste was instantly toffee/fudge but with good bitterness towards the end with a nice citrussy hoppiness about it. A great session beer.

Cask-conditioned at the Royal Oak, Bath 28/9/07. Amber coloured with a decent, off-white head. Fruity malt aroma with some orange hops. The flavour hinted at some red fruit, before a dry finish. Good.
