Enjoyed a pint at a pub in Kent in the Summer of 2007. very dark, nice and malty(as I like it), almost sweet. just enough bitterness for me. By far the best bitter I had during my 2 weeks in England. Wish they sold it here in the States.

berkshirejohn (4204) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2011
Cask at the John Logie Baird (JDW), Hastings. Amber with a tight cream head and a fruity aroma - nothing like the brewer’s description. The flavour is muted fruits with nutty carmael malts, followed by a light, dry, biscuity finish. Pleasant enough, but not worth a second glass.

sm89walt (1716) - Northern Beaches, Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 24, 2010
Cask - The White Horse, Parson’s Green, London. Poured a clear, deep amber-chestnut brown with a medium sized & lasting, bubbly beige head leaving a uniform lace. Lovely malt profile. Sweet, juicy red berries lie beneath toasty, nutty, cakey & almost choccy malts backed by dryer English hop notes. Well balanced on the tongue. Sweet caramel, full biscuity and toasted malt flavours leading to a dry, grassy English hop bitterness. Soft mouthfeel, medium body with a good length finish. A full, rounded and very drinkable bitter.
