This beautifully balanced session ale has a refreshing light floral flavour provided by a single variety of English hops.

Mr Chubbs was the nickname given to the founder’s father, a lock keeper on the River Thames.

A really great session ale. It’s light, easy to drink with medium bitterness and sweetness. Good summer drink.

Bottle at home from the brewery
Pours attractive pale brown with frothy offwhite head. Looks like a freshly pulled pint. Caramel and herbal hops on nose. Medium body, carbonation, excellent session bitter in the English tradition with good bitter snap in finish. Reminds me of gales butser.

FatPhil (9817) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 18, 2012
Cask (Palmerston Arms, Peterborough)
An adequate aroma for a bitter, a bit caramelly. Dullish. No flaws, but a bit boring. Quite quaffable. Refreshing body, carbonation low. Nice barley in the late finish. Straight down the middle UK cask bitter, so not bad for the strength.

evergreen0199 (2196) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2012
Cask at The Carriers Arms, Watlington, Oxfordshire. An amber coloured pour with a medium off white head on top. Fruity, malty aroma. Tastes fruity, malty, some caramel and slight bitterness. Rather plain to be honest but nice to see a non Brakspear ale in this part of Oxfordshire.
