COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Has also been available bottle conditioned.
A beer with a pleasant mix of hop and malt flavours in the aroma and taste, leading to a dry, often flowery hop after taste.

Cask at the Cross Keys, Harpenden. Deep amber with a thin cream head. Not great at first- a bit of fetid swamp water; thought it was going to be yet another dreadful beer from this below par brewery. However, chocolate and treacley malt develop, with some grassy hop notes and a mild earthy bitterness to balance, and you know what? Itís actually OK. Not great though, just OK. But pleasantly drinkable all the same.

EdKing (1866) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2013
Cask pint in The Lamb in Berkhamsted. Condiiton is maybe not optimal here. Clear chestbrown, medium white head, rainbow bubbles. Nose is little sulphur, slight vinegar, caramel, slight bread. Taste is caramel, slight nutty, slight malt vinegar, slight bread. Not very intersting bitter.

jjsint (769) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2013
Cask at the Old Sugar Loaf, Dunstable. Brown bitter. Sweet aroma, like fruit malt loaf. Sweetness and malt dominate through taste. Verdict: I like it. Another good beer from the ever-dependable Tring.

evergreen0199 (2011) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2013
Cask at The Nags Head, Great Missenden, Bucks. An amber coloured pour with a medium white head on top. Fruity, hoppy aroma. This was really fresh, tasted fruity, malty, caramel, slightly bitter finish. Good session ale.

Cask by handpump at Cask & Barrel, Edinburgh - clear amber ale, creamy off-white head, mild fruity hop aroma, biscuit malt flavour, oily feel, prolonged malty aftertaste

Sweet and citrusy with floral hops. Copper gold with a medium body...decent.

berkshirejohn (4526) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 23, 2012
Cask at the Crispin, Wokingham. Copper coloured with a loose cream head; fruity aroma; soft texture, sweet and fruity flavour - sultanas perhaps; then some fresh grassy hops to finish. A very quaffable bitter.

Vladivostok (237) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAR 6, 2012
From my recollection this was Tringís first beer; to be honest, I was never that keen and it rather put me off the brewery until they came along with fine beers such as Side Pocket. Tried it again recently at the usually reliable Greyhound, Wigginton. Sadly this just confirmed my first impression - amber, little aroma that I could notice and a general balance between malt and hops. I suppose itís an OK session beer but if I say itís similar to Hall and Woodhouse Sussex Bitter, then you (may) know what I mean.

imdownthepub (10220) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2009
Cask conditioned at The Horse & Groom, Caulcott, Oxon. Amber with white head. Nicely balanced session type bitter, biscuity dry malt with a bittersweet hop, grassy, fresh and juicy. Very nice and tasty.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 31, 2008
Cask at the Trafalgar with Mes, 25th April 2008. An absolutely great hoppy bitter served in great condition. Perfectly balanced and boasting a great long bitter finish. Simple but oh so effective.
