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.

FatPhil (8595) - 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.

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.

Mortlach (955) - Rome, ITALY - DEC 3, 2011
03/12/2011 Brasserie 4:20 (cask). Ambrata, intensa, limpida, bella schiuma pannosa, abbondante, bianca e molto persistente. Aroma molto intenso di luppolo, malto, pane, note floreali, fruttate, agrumate. In bocca è amara decisa, con una buona persistenza e una lieve nota di caramello, Corpo medio, inusuale per una bitter da appena 3.7%, consistenza oleosa, carbonazione soft. Discreta bitter ale.

Ethereal (2410) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 8, 2010
Bottle from Drink of Fulham, drunk at home on 31st May 2010. Very good looks - light copper with a diminishing cream coloured head. Malty taste - lots of toffee, bread and biscuit flavours. Rather half hearted hop nose - slightly funky. Smooth and not too thin given the strength. Drinkable bitter.
