Cask; Regular.
Our local bitter, extremely popular in Devizes and district and available throughout the Wadworth trading area - light, refreshing and sessionable. An aroma of gentle malt with slight hoppiness combines with a good balance of flavours on palate, maltiness gradually dominating. There is a long-lasting after taste to match which eventually becomes biscuity.
Ingredients: 92% pale malt, 6% crystal malt and 2% cane sugar. The bitterness units of 20-22 are obtained from Fuggles hops (80% of total) in the copper and Goldings hops (20%) on the hop back plates. Colour rating is 22.

EdKing (2038) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2014
Pint in the The Boot Inn, Berwick St James, Wiltshire. When I arrived at the bar and asked what was fresh, only to get a puzzled look from the bar girl, I knew I was in trouble, even though this is a CAMRA pub. This is clear chestnut brown. I won’t bother to get into too many details suffice to say this is dull brown twig water. Watery, caramel, crystal malt, smidgen of dry earthy English hop and tangy hop on the finish. I left two thirds of it on the table and left.

I had a pint in a pub. I found it bland with not much in the way of taste at all, a bit sweet and very mildly bitter. Drinkable but bland.

jjsint (1130) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 4, 2015 Cask @ Cricketers Arms, Bedford. Noncommittal golden brown, decent full white head. Light aroma. Bit of malt and citrus notes with sulphur astringency. Taste takes a while to kick in, a decent sour bitterness followed by a bittersweet hoppy aftertaste. Good but not too distinct from other low strength bitters (it goes without saying that this is not an IPA). ----3.3.15 Cask at the Bell, Wendens Ambo. The sulphur in the taste and aroma were so intense and unpleasant that I felt that I would need to knock it down a few notches. Ar5, Ap4, T3, P3, O8 Total 2.3 - Averaged to 2.6.
