Always reliable, good taste and condition. Caramel notes. Session beer thats just as good in bottles or from the barrel.

jjsint (926) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - OCT 27, 2013
Cask @ Cross Keys, Harpenden. Dark gold, almost copper. Very faint aroma. Working hard you can get toast, golden syrup, yeast. Bittersweet taste; syrup comes into play in a big way. Not as balanced as I remember. Well-crafted enough but not the most exciting of best bitters.

BenH (2507) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 25, 2013
Cask at Teuchters landing. Golden with white head. Spicy earthy aroma. Taste of intense toffee, peppery earthy hops, something weird I can’t put my finger on, like Tizer. Slightly sweet. Not offensive but not for me.
