A light brown quaffing ale with a hint of sweetness and caramel on the palate. Challenger hops impart a gentle bitterness, which is matched by a late hop aroma from Styrian Goldings.

BlackHaddock (5759) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2012
3rd Half at a beerfest in The George Inn, Eccleshall (April 2012). Hand pulled. Amber body with an off-white crown on top. Malts in the nose and taste, good flavours for the alcohol level: this is a fine session beer and I could quiet happily stayed on it all night, but there were other goodies to try!

Hand pulled at the Wellington, Birmingham. Nicely balanced traditonal, but hoppy bitter. Very well balanced and good for exaggerated slurps.

imdownthepub (12688) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2010
Cask conditioned, gravity dispensed at The Lord Nelson Inn, Reedham, Norfolk. Orange gold with white head. This proved to be a dry hoppy bitter, some spiciness, leafy hops with an oily resonance. Long bitter finish, pretty decent.

Draught (Devonshire Arms, Cambridge)
Lovely sweet bready, slightly nutty aroma. Beautiful soft palate. More breadiness in the taste. Lovely twiggy bitterness. Classic bitter, makes me want to drink more. Great at 3.7%.

jjsint (2047) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 12, 2014 Cask @ Lamb, Stoke Goldington. Pours a light brown. Not a lot of head. Malty, vinous smell. Dough, slight astringency, hint of something herby. Soft fruit and toffee. Taste is sweet with a tempering savoury/spicy flavour that lifts it a bit above the ’twiggy/ordinary brown bitter’. Bitterness in the palette. Pretty good, especially for the low ABV.
