tombyars (1486) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - MAR 12, 2012
Sampled this bitter in the Last Post, Paisley (JDW) in January 2009. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear tawny with russet highlights and a thick creamy white head. Prickly dusty hop aroma has floral notes through it. Good lacing throughout and a rich creamy mouthfeel. Pale malts give a rich digestive teabiscuit edge. Juicy fruit notes of red apple and gooseberry give a short intensity in the mouth. Fruit notes fade to lead into a citrus burst of hop resin in the mellow aftertaste. Decent bitter with a sweet finish. An ok session ale.

StueyD (1443) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - OCT 15, 2006
A mid to dark brown coloured beer with orange tints and a thickish off white head. The nose is light, but distinctively malty, with a hint o f fruit in the background. the taste is smooth and malty, coffee and chocolate elements are present, then a bitter, slightly dry hop flavour that balances the finish nicely. Very drinkable! (Cask - The Fox & Hounds, Heacham, Norfolk).

Pint at the Old Manor in Bracknell. Fair fluffy head on a dark red beer. Light, dry hops, and a bit flowery. Slightly floral hop aroma. Pretty unremarkable.

Handpulled cask at The One Crown, Watford. Mid brown with a small white head. Fairly fruity, subtle malt and hops. Nothing special.

Amber colour with a thin white head. Lacing on the glass. Nice balance of malt and hops. Bitter taste of hops with some malt. Fairly smooth.

justm (164) - Essex, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2012
Cask at the Blue Boar, Billericay, Essex. Pours a chestnut brown with a fluffy off-white head. The aroma is lightly malty with caramel. A medium soft palate although quite fizzy on the tip of the tongue. Taste is clean malt with a little dry hop. Caramel lingers while the faintest suggestion of pudding fruits, raisins and sultanas, glide over the tongue. A very dry, refreshing finish makes for a tasty, easy drinking session bitter.

A very mediocre beer, nice color and head, a very slight bitterness but a huge letdown.
