rauchbier (3749) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, - AUG 18, 2012
Bottle, from Doddington Hall Farm Shop. Golden brown, thin shortlived white head and low condition. Gentle melon fruit and earthy hops in the nose, very soft and quite caramel sweet in the mouth initially but with a developing hoppy bitterness and some nuttiness, finish is slightly dry and hoppy with more lingering nutty notes.

GraviCask, half pint shared with Finn at Canalhouse, beer fest Champion Beer of Nottinghamshire. Deep dark brown body, missing head, minimal lacing. Roasted caramel malts, hints of earth and bread. Similar flavours of caramel, bread and malt-fruity bitterness to the ending. Well balanced. Decent (Nottingham 20.02.2016).

imdownthepub (12664) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 13, 2015
Cask conditioned at The Hand & Heart, Nottingham. Amber with off white head. Sweet malts to the fore, light and smooth with a sweetish caramel follow through. Touches of earthiness. It’s okay.

theprof (375) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2015
Cask. A deep copper ale with a full foam top. Sweet aroma with toffee notes. Taste has some fruit and a backbone of bitter but the biscuit and caramel flavours predominate. On the palate it’s medium to full bodied with a slick feel and lively carbonation. This may detract from its appeal as a session bitter. Certainly it has quelled my urge for a second. But give me a minute...

Caramel brown, clear, frothy off white head
Aroma of light caramel malts, touch of cereal, little on the nose
Taste of light soft caramel, light fruits, touch of cerak, easy going, soft light malts, not that malty overall though but ok
Palate - Light body, bit oily. Finish - soft bitter english hops, soft malts
Overall - Standard English bitter, now’t exciting, but nothing bad about it either
