COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A silver medal winner at the 2002 SIBA South East Regional Competition. A traditional style beer with all English hops and a good bitterness balanced by Maris Otter malts from Wiltshire and Suffolk. This beer is named in memory of the brewer’s father, who was the lock-keeper at Whitchurch-on-Thames, and sometimes nick-named Mr Chubb.

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 (9413) - 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 (2074) - 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.

Cask-conditioned at the Bag O’Nails, Bristol 13/04/2012. Deep amber in colour with a slight, off-white head. An easy drinking session beer, with some fruity malts and decent, bitter finish. Very quaffable.

Labove (427) - Rome, ITALY - DEC 13, 2011
bevuta al 4:20, un po’ moscietta e non in gran forma, ma ste birre si bevono sempre che è un piacere. Piglia e butta giù!
