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.

mt_hall (161) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2015
Bottled. A clear, deep copper colour with a small light brown head and noticeable carbonation. Pleasant, sweet aroma of malt and hops, caramel and sugar. A well-balanced traditional English ale with a sweet caramel start and a dry nutty finish. Good.

Draught (Maypole, Camdbridge)
Nice black tea and honey aroma. A hint of caramel, and a touch of tobacco. Full, but refreshing palate. Absolutely top bitter. Says "drink me". Finish is honey, veering towards popcorn kernels. Lovely. I thought the Kotuku was good, but this is even better - Tring are the heading towards being the kings of traditional bitters.

Beese (2560) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 23, 2014
Bottle from the Tring Brewery. Poured a very lightly hazy copper, with a halo of white head. Aroma of sweet fruits, cake and floral hop. Berries in the flavour, with bready malt and caramel. Finish was light resin, brown sugar and copper.

wheresthepath (1833) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUN 29, 2014
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? It’s actually OK. Not great though, just OK. But pleasantly drinkable all the same.

EdKing (2201) - 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 (1549) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, 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 (2514) - 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.
