On tap at The Swan (London, UK). Limpid amber body with a thin, lasting off-white creamy head. Fresh malty/hoppy aroma with herbal and flowery hints. Its well balanced malty/hoppy taste carries herbal and grainy notes. Ends with a decent bitter/grainy finish. Average Bitter.

JorgeLee (1156) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2012
Cask in the Pickerel, Cambridge. Amber coloured bitter, quite a light overall beer but tasty malt and just enough hop to make it moreish. Tasty, and not strong so a good session beer.

I’ve drank this in the brewery tap and on many occasions in Norfolk, but strangely never reviewed it before. This review is of a pint, hand pulled into a standard UK sleeve glass in the Prince of Wales pub on Drury Lane, London (opposite The Lowlander Cafe) Oct 2011. The body is light amber and almost clear, a slight haze hangs in the glass, on top a white head struggled to keep afloat, it slowly faded away leaving a wispy covering surrounded by a thicker collar. Many smells came into my nose (the pub was full), but I think the beer gave off aromas of caramel biscuits, lightly baked and dropped into a box of pink-grapefruit before being used in the brew! The taste was a good mix of flavours, mini citrus notes and those caramel biscuits from the smell marry together nicely: this is so easy to drink. A lovely brew and one that can be sessioned, only 3.8% ABV, but full of character and quality.

will1 (140) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2012
Tasted at Winchester Beer Festival. Tasty session bitter. Good flavour for the alcohol content. Malty aromas, slightly yeasty with sufficient level of hops to make this a good thirst quencher. I have also previously made the licensed homebrew kits to this recipe and found them to be good.

tombyars (1348) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - MAR 12, 2012
Sampled this bitter in the Three Marys, Linlithgow in April 1993. Cask, handpump dispense. Pale amber in colour with a thin white creamy head. Nice malty aroma with refreshing mouthfeel and good lacing. . Pale malt complexes giving a digestive biscuit base lacd with golden syrup and a sweet fruity spangle flavour. Dry hop resin evident in the lemony citric aftertaste. Finish is sweet with barley sugar notes in the mouth. A decent session bitter.
