UPDATED: OCT 25, 2008 Aloit! Aloit! Hop-bomb alert. Ouch! Quite bitter, but smells of pure malt. A fine traditional English ale. Ignore those fools who say ’Prefer cask version’. These people lack education. What! Difficult to swallow the whole bottle. Prefer it from cask.

Bottle. Creamy butterscotch malt aroma - very nice. Clear amber with moderate head. Creamy butterscotch malt and dry hoppy flavor. Light bitter aftertaste that lasts long after swallowing. Moderate carbonation. Really didn’t expect much but this was a very nice surprise. A very nice bitter - strong diacetyl and bold hops.

at the bricklayers in putney. Nose of roasted barley, grass and a hint of wet cardboard. amber in colour with a good head. very round but pretty bland in taste except a slight metallic tinge. strangly fizzy and a neverending bitter aftertaste.

bottle- pours very clear like a lager. orange and ruby in colour. heads thin with some gray bubbles, nose is bready, nutty, smells yeasty earthy with a caramel sweetness, tastes hoppy a bit sweet with caramel overtones. a bit metallic, which makes it tastes stale.
