A golden beer brewed especially for the Centenary of Chester's famous Eastgate clock. The fruity foretaste is followed by a mellow acceptable finish of hops. Winner of the Ludlow Food & Drinks Festival Oct 2002

Perpignan73 (35) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - AUG 12, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 10, 2016 500ml bottle, chilled, poured into a pint glass at home. Attractive clear golden amber colour; minimal head; sweet, fruity aroma reminiscent of toffee apple; light bitterness with some caramel and fruit on the palate and a bitter sweet finish. Not overly complex as is the style, but it left a decent fruity-toffee taste in the mouth.

Cask at The Reginald Mitchell, Hanley. A clear deep amber colour with a frothy off white head. Aroma of caramel, bready malts, some dark berries, slight metal and subtle spicy hops. Taste of caramel, bready malts, some dark berries, slight red berries and subtle spicy hops. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A dry, fruity, spicy hop bitterness in the finish. A fruity bitter with a slight spicy hop bitterness. Isnít exciting and but well balanced. Below average.

zacgillbanks (4522) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2015
Bottles from The Cheese Shop, Chester and Fenwicks, Newcastle (2005). Amber coloured with a sweet red fruit and toffee flavour, malty notes and strong peppery hops, sulphur and sweetness on the warming finish. Nice.

Nocturne (1833) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2015
Cask. Mid to dark copper shade. Patchy covering of foam. Notes of dark toffee, a kind of hedgerow-like blackcurrant fruitiness, and minor hints of spicy anise. Never setting the world alight, but an interesting enough mix of flavours that combine well.

minutemat (4421) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 16, 2014
Cask @ the Cholmondeley Arms, Cheshire with my Belgian father-in-law. Pours a deep amber with thin bubbly head. Dusty glass. Light fruity hop aroma with a thin, mediocre bitter taste. Rather boring.

Hanoi (848) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - NOV 11, 2013
Nose is cereal, slight caramel,grain. Taste is as promised, is honey, red currents, apples a little citrus leading to a short lightly bitter sweetish finish hoppy finish with a slight metallic note. Mouthfeel is slightly to carbonated. Itís largely good but the metallic note really lets it down. In a strange way it reminds me of the bitter my dad used to drink in the 80s....

Beesbeer (452) - WALES - JUL 21, 2013
Pours chestnut brown. Smells and tastes like a real proper bitter, slightly doughy with a medium dry bitter ending.
