Cask & Bottle Conditioned; Regular.
A full bodied, smooth Best Bitter. A blend of Cascade and First Gold hops give it its characteristic complex hoppiness. A solid, down to earth 4.2% ale with no airs and graces.

jmgreenuk (5615) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - MAY 13, 2015
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Poured a crystal clear medium amber with a frothy white head and some broken lace. The aroma is woody resin hop. The flavour is moderate bitter with a silky smooth malt, fresh hop, light citrus palate and a lingering bitter finish. Medium body with soft carbonation. An excellent session ale.

500ml Bottle - Copper in colour. Biscuity malt, hops and dried fruit in the aroma. Fruity and nicely balanced taste with notes of caramel, berries, dried fruit and hops. A tasty bitter.

allmyvinyl (5757) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 22, 2014
Impromptu tasting of three Two Cocks beers (six cocks?) with Ashton McCobb. Jeez-o this one smells bad, not sure I want to put it in my mouth! No way this is bottle-conditioned, as the yeast would’ve cleared up that diacetyl and sulphur, and there was nothing in the way of sediment, not one iota. Taste has a kinda toffee thing, but hard to get past everything else. Astringent finish. Disappointing.

AshtonMcCobb (3675) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 22, 2014
50cl bottle thanks to allmyvinyl. Appearance - a dark honey colour with a decent head. Nose - butterscotch from 3 feet away and more close up . maybe some dry biscuits in there too. Also unpleasant struck match thing. Taste - burnt toffee but the struck match nose gets in the way. Palate - medium bodied burnt middle texture and a reasonable finish. Overall - generally unpleasant and the nose in particular.

Mr_Pink_152 (1665) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2014
500ml bottle from The Grump Goat Reading. Golden colour with a small white head. Aroma is fruity, and floral. Flavour is similar with a fruity finish. Really liked the artisan feel the bottle which had with a real hens (well probably a cocks) feather on the bottle.

Theydon_Bois (12113) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2013
Bottle split at JF’s, cheers Jim, 22/12/13. Lightly hazed copper amber with a thin off white covering. Nose is biscuit malt, toffee, light smoke, woody notes. Taste comprises bread dough, fruit loaf, caramel. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, light bitter strains in the finish. So so bitter.

viktorvee (510) - Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 4, 2013 Nice. Reminds me of London pride, with slightly more prominent hoppy undertone, some woody, floral notes and a fat, lasting head. Maybe a tiny bit watery at the end but solid effort.
