A really nice bitter. I have some very happy memories of this stuff.
My personal experience is that the bottles taste a lot better than cask.
Great shame that itís been made virtually extinct by Theakstonís Cool Cask which is a very average ale. I canít find the bottles on anymore anymore :( and only know one pub with it on tap.
I guess itís not so popular because of itís low alcohol content. Sometimes itís good just to have a great tasting beer. It doesnít have to always be about getting drunk quick. Too often breweries are replacing great light beers with super strength crap.

One of the greatest ales there are. Itís certainly one of my favorites if not #1. An excellent session beer when you can find it well kept.

UPDATED: MAR 18, 2007 An excellent real ale cask bitter. I wonder if you guys who donít like it really like English bitters at all??

My favourite session pint, floral and lemon and lime aroma. Rich malt palate with tangy fruit and a dry finish

[Cask conditioned] Amber coloured. Fruity aroma. Very nice flavour. Hoppy, herbal. spicy and bitter. Full bodied. I was very surprised to read all the bad ratings of this great brew. Very underrated.

A real nice pint with late EKG hop addition in the end. Just lovely hop persona and balance is good too. Could have some cascade hops.

On cask at brewery visitor center. Clean aroma. Golden yellow with white head. Light fruity flavor with good expression of hops, and a slight malty background. Dry finish.
