First brewed in June 1999 to commemorate the trussing-in of Jonathan Manby.
"An amber-red bitter in the classic India Pale Ale (IPA) style, full-bodied and robust in flavor. It is late-and dry-hopped with Golding hops. Initial sweetness, which gives way to complex fruitiness followed by a bitter finish."

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2009
A Mes rate. Cask handpull at Baker Street ’Sporks.
Clean gold with a big frothy white head. Far too metallic and virtually no flavour to back it up other than some faint nutty malt. Astringent finish. Absolute shocker!

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2009
Cask at ’Spoons, Milton Keynes, in ’Spoons Real Ale Festival, April-May ’09. Copper with a small white head. Painty malt aroma, not the best, but the taste was good enough: grainy malt with a hint of almond and a mid bitter finish.

RoyceH (1198) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - FEB 21, 2007
Cask, Criterion, St Andrews. Copper colour, very slightly hazy, thin off-white head. Nose is hoppy, some grass and lemon, slight sweetness. Mouth is fruity, watery, sweet. Quite fresh and light. Malt and hop bitterness, balanced, palates out to a smooth, sweet, slightly liquorice end. Too watery flavour, very good apart from that.
