COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask, occasional;
"Our Master Brewer has developed this exceptional ale to resurrect the Tolly Cobbold name. Including both oats and wheat, its distinctive biscuit malt and fruit flavours, combined with just a hint of sweetness, result in a rich and smooth, full bodied ale."

chriso (7416) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2011
Cask (handpump) at the Woolpack, Chelmsford on 3 February 2011. Warning! You are now entering a hop-free zone. Copper colour with a slight reddish tinge. Itís all creamy caramel on the nose. Full of sweet, sticky malt in the flavour. No appreciable hop presence to provide respite. Sweet and watery on the palate - not a good combination. Rubbish. I see that other reviews have not been too critical so this might not have been in peak condition. Canít say Iíll be rushing back to form a second opinion though. Iím not sure this is actually a recreation of an old Tolly Cobbold beer, but more an attempt to exploit the brewery name.

FatPhil (9507) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 6, 2011
Cask (Prince Regent, Cambridge)
6 Sweet bready malty beer.
4 Deep orange, small head.
6 Simple rich malty taste, one might say "brown". Some slightly supfury hops in there too, I guess thatís Green King reinventing the Tolly Cobbold taste.
3 Soft palate, carbonation low. Full, but brief malty finish.
12 Simple, but a decent traditional dark bitter.

Egg4Goff (19) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2011
Cask; Gypsy Queen; Beighton, Sheffield -- Nice light, cream cloloured head with a beautiful deep amber appearance. An deep but not particularly inspring aroma. The first mouthful was very promising with a warming toffee flavour but it failed to excite for long as there seemed to be little else going on. It was not as heavy as you have thought from its appearance and taste, making for an easy drink all the way down. It was a decent pint and I would drink again depending on what else was on offer.

tdtm82 (671) - Essex, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2011
Cask, The Woolpack, Chelmsford Creamy-white lacing, redish-brown colour, aroma is chestnuts, cream, tofffee. Taste is floral hops, toffee, caramel, soy-source, astringent yeast, heavy malts, really poorly balanced, awful top end bitterness, bland boring, bah.

JanEric (1027) - Meppel, NETHERLANDS - JUL 15, 2010
Cask at The Grapes, Oxford. Amber coloured, normal head. Aroma is hops and some souriness. Reasonable bitter taste with sourish notes. Reasonable finish. Good thirstquencher, also by the sorishness.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUN 14, 2010
Cask conditioned handpump Wig & Pen Northampton. An amber coloured beer with a white head and lacing. A malty bitter with an earthy taste but hardly any aroma. Very ordinary as expected.

DruncanVeasey (7309) - NUNEATON, Top 23, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2010
UPDATED: JUN 24, 2011 Cask handpull, The Shovel, Lye, West Mids. Chestnut with orange edges, tight beige collar. Vague cask and nuttiness aroma. Drab and slick with generic caramel, flavourless cherry, boiled sweets, astringency. Cheap, lazy brewing. Piss poor.

harrisoni (14020) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2010
Cask handpull at Druids Arms, Maidstone. Reddish brown, thin beige head. Diacetyl jumps out of the glass with a touch of fruit. Diacetyl bomb with some red fruits. I would rather drink GK IPA than this and I had to pay £1.55 for the pleasure of a half pint. Fruity bitter with not much body, too much butter and not much hop.
