COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask & Bottle Conditioned; Regular.
A dark golden session bitter with a mouth-watering fruity nose. It starts soft and fruity on the palate. It soon gains a solid, slightly perfumed hop edge. The finish is beautifully dry and bitter. A beautiful beer for hop heads!

Cask Conditioned at Harbury Beer Festival 05. Deep gold with big bubbly head. Great condition for a festival beer and surprisingly rich for a session bitter. Dry and fruity, a beer that would last through a Friday night drinkathon. Long bitter finish with well outlined hoppiness. My beer of this festival despite its ABV.

A Mes rate: Bottle at Chris Os laid back Friday night tasting.
Cloudy mid gold with a thin white head. Lovely floral, bitter and aromatic hoppy aroma with faint notes of lemon and berries. The flavour is excellent. Full of glorious hoppage. Lovely background bready malt which gives it an excellent balance and the fruit is glorious. A superb thirst quenching beer with a really good dry and bitter finish. Very good prickly mouthfeel with just the right amount of carb. Jolly good stuff.

Cask (gravity dispense), St Albans Beer Festival 2005. Copper coloured with a scant white head. Id hardly call it a hop-head beer, but there is plenty of dusty, tangy British-style hop on show. Some light biscuity malt and subtle fruit around as well. Not a beer that shouts out at you, but a nicely balanced, quite classy little number.

Cask conditioned - gravity dispense - Harbury BF. A mid brown coloured beer with nice white lacing. The aroma is nice fruity malts and a little smokiness in the background. The taste is crunchy and dry. Real toasty flavours and throat grabbing bitterness. Real good body. I can see why Glen liked this so much, although my marks are not quite as high.

UPDATED: OCT 16, 2008 Bottle from Walgrave Asda, Coventry. Murky orange pour with a creamy blanket of suds. Aromas of citrus, soil, a dab of vinegar and earthy hops. A bit damp as always. Bitter grapefruit and mandarin fruitiness with some biscuity malt lurking way back in the mix. Not a million miles from Linda Lear. Potently hopped, uncomplicated bitter that more than held its own against a fiery Madras (Cask re-rate, bottled rating 3.2) The Lord Nelson, Ansley. Clear bronze pint draped with lace. Aroma sulphurous, with a definite wring of dank soapy dishcloth and fibrously hoppy notes as it warms. Punchy Cascade hopping mellowed with biscuity malt, oats and delicate chocolate. (Re-rate, back at brewpub) Lovely choc malt creaminess, sulphur, lemon, strawberry and tea aroma. Stillish milky palate. Caramel and butter, but in a nice way. Recession hop rates. Not what it was on this showing. Overly buttery but pleasant silky quaffer with all the edges smoothed out . A shame.
