Delightful beer - golden colour and well balanced between sweetness of the malt and bitterness of the hops. Very drinkable, one of my favourites. Well worth a visit to Bishops Castle in Shropshire.

Cask (handpump) at the Three Tuns, Bishops Castle, Shropshire, October 2005. What better place to drink this than at the Three Tuns itself, one of the great British drinking establishments, now back to top form after a rather chequered history in recent years. Pale amber colour. Slight diacetyl butterscotch in the aroma. Initial mouth hit is sweetish becoming drier and more hoppy later on. Fruity notes throughout. Lingering bittersweet finish.

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 24, 2007
Half pint pulled at The Church Inn in Ludlow (Shropshire), very lively, a bright gold with a white head. A fresh fruity aroma. Juicy fruit in the mouth, ligthly hopped.

DanielBrown (3817) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2011
Hand pulled at the Black Eagle, Birmingham. By all accounts this is a beer with it’s place in UK brewing history secured. On the night I enjoyed it - fairly gentle, but with enough flavour to uninhibit constant swigging. Sweetish, with a grassy straw hop foreground. Got better as it warmed up.

SilkTork (5218) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2005
Wallington Beer Festival. Fresh and juicy with a good citric hop smack. Nothing heavy in any direction, all flavours are strong but delicate and wonderfully integrated. A great breakfast beer.

downender (6290) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2008
Cask-conditioned at the Bag O’Nails, Bristol 23/6/08. Deep gold in colour with a thin white head that left plenty of lacing down the glass. Aroma of strawberries, orange and a touch of caramel. Flavour was bitter, with some biscuit malt, red fruit and a long dry, bitter finish. Enjoyable.
