Pours a nice copper colour, small head. Taste and smell are similar, bitter and a quite sharp finish, some sugar and malt in the background. Reasonable.

Pours classic pale ale red/orange, with a fizzy head that lingers. Hoppy malty nose, smells quite sweet. Very nice mouthfeel, hop flavours come through strongly and bitterly, with a background of malt. A very drinkable, tasty excellent beer.

Aroma is an inviting malt, with a leafy wet hops, dark amber, pours a small off-white head. Flavour is a woody malt, mild fruit, the hops figure in with a resiny bite. Light bodied, perfectly balanced, extremely well made, superb mouthfeel, fresh as you please. Fabulous! Thanks so much Roger Pettit.

Caramel in colour with a rapidly disappearing head. Had a smeel of hops and a malty taste. Smooth.

I like this very much on cask, but simply cannot drink the bottled version. Strange metallic after-taste, too carbonated for my liking and somewhat too bitter finish. Again, I love the cask, but just cannot stomach this version.

After seeing some of the rating here I’m thinking I got quite an old bottle here. Pours orange / copper with an off-white head. The aroma has some skunk, light butter and woody / cardboard traits. Medium / light sharp body with minor carbonation. The flavor starts of metallic and sharp with some peppery traits and thin caramel. The finish is highly metallic. The bottle I had was fair, hopefully down the line I can have one in better shape and rerate.

A good bitter but not as nice for me as some people obviously find it. I was bloody thirsty when I drank this too, should have been right on time but not too thirst quenching. Decnent it was though. Cheers.
