Cask at Wellington, Birmingham
Dark mahogany color, beautiful with its red shades. The aroma shows a suspicious light trace of apples. The flavor has some quite good dark caramel and roasted malts, with traces of apples too, and correct bitterness. I wonder about the bitterness, but it’s a pretty good Bitter.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask at the Victoria Inn, Rugby, 17/04/13.
Dark amber/copper with a thin off white head that retains well. Good lacing ensues.
Nose is dark malts, fruit, light toffee, a little thin overall.
Taste comprises berry fruits, Ribena Lite, touch of hops, malt, caramel.
Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, bitterness in the finish.
Drinkable but a safe bitter which doesn’t set my world on fire.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Cask conditioned at The Plough, Warmington, Warks. Muddy brown with no head. This was in awful condition, a vinegar nose with a flat, monotonous palate. There was some fruit, berry, but overall this Lifeboat had gone down with the ship. Terrible.

Cask by hand-pump, half pint at York Tap. Creamy beige head resting over a dark brown coloured body. Spotty lacing down the glass. Malt-fruity aroma. Taste of caramel malts, earth and dark fruits with a little tartness beneath it all. Slightly roasted malts to the ending. Mild floury palate. Okay (York 10.07.2014).

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUN 15, 2008 Cask Handpump at ’The Harp’ Covent Garden, London 16-03-06. I thought the Harveys Sussex was unbeatable today until I tried this. A wonderful dark red beer with little head to speak of. The sweetness and bitterness are very good kept getting a pleasant vanilla taste with each slurp ’its difficult too sip’. Extremely good beer. Cask at the Nut Tree, Murcott, Oxon, 15-06-08 in the company of Loz, Casey and Traci Dark brown light mahogany colour with a slight off white creamy head. Taste is fresh, even a little earthy, bit citrussy some pithiness comes through, hoppy on the end, tangy, marvellous.
