imdownthepub (9622) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2009
Cask conditioned at The Crown & Trumpet, Broadway, Worcs. Amber to chestnut with white head. Quite a thinnish bitter on the palate, dry flowery hop character giving a hoppy bitterness, slightly peach flower in style. Surprisingly little in the way of malt note given the colour. Still very drinkable though.

maeib (8391) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2011
Bottled. A brwon beer with no head. The aroma has boozy sweetness, brown fruits and malts. The taste is fruity and malty. Sweet brown fruits again. Quite characterful but I’d prefer more hops.

leaparsons (7794) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 20, 2011
Bottle. Bronze with a thin foam. Aromas are floral with lemon sherbet and plenty of floral notes. Some raisin and berry fruitiness. Flavours are fudge with weetabix and dusty yeast. Earthy, dry hops with a buttery palate. Peppery and dry on the finish. Pretty decent.
