Cask; Regular.
An amber beer with a special Belgian malt and a fruity mix of American and European hops. Very addictive, and our flagship beer.

MarkoNm (1510) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - APR 17, 2015
Pours a clear amber color, topped with a small and quickly dissapearing off-white head. Malty aroma, mild caramel and biscuity notes, some resin also. Taste is sweet and biscuity, mild bitterness in the finish. Herbal/metallic feel in the aftertaste. A bit watery, but not bad.

rlgk (13385) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 3, 2015
Cask at Market Porter, London. Clear golden/amber beer with a quite nice lasting beige head. Malty bready aroma, grapes, earthy notes, a bit papery. Malty caramel flavor, grassy, some bitter hops. A bit flat.

Mr_Pink_152 (1920) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2015
On tap at the Bath Brew House, Bath, not the best XT beer I have had. Cloudy amber colour with no head. aroma is very week fruit, the taste has a slight bitter finish, but overall the beer is a touch watery.

johndoughty (4278) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 12, 2015
Bottle. My first from this brewery.Bronze with a small head.Slightly spicy with some fruitiness but stops short of being too complex. A bit more body would have increased the impact but it was still a pleasant beer.

Beese (2560) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2014
Cask at The Rising Sun, Berkhamsted on 26 July 2012. Poured a clear amber, with an off white head. Aroma was nutty and malt heavy, with some straw. Caramel and chewy grain flavours, with some light grassy hop. Finish was biscuit, toffee and hop resin.

Vladivostok (325) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2014
Dark-ish amber with a sweet malty nose. There’s some biscuit there, a little smokiness which adds up to a quite distinctive beer. Finish is long and bitter. Reminds me somewhat of Purity’s Mad Goose.

jjsint (1397) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2014
Cask at the Elm Tree, Cambridge. Copper/amber, clear with not so much head. Chestnut, spruce, tangerine and gingerbread in the nose. Bittersweet refreshing taste with a sweet gingersnap finish and aftertaste. Weak palette is a letdown. Decent.

mR_fr0g (5394) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2014
Cask gravity at the Watford RFC beer fest. Nice rich red amber coloured pour with a lasting loose white head. Aroma is subdued caramel with lemon citrus and berry hop. Touch of grass. Flavour is composed of caramel, biscuit and a touch of toffee malts and good clean English yeast ferment. Hops are earthy grass, berry and touch of citrus. Medium easy going palate with fine carbonation. Decent condition. Tasty ale.

olsvammel (4140) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JUL 13, 2014
On tap at a pub in the Oxford area called Eight Bells. Smell of candy, perfume, light hops and fruits. Similar taste. The perfume aroma is not my kind of thing.

Cask conditioned handpump Lamplighter Northampton 08/03 A classic brown coloured beer a whitish head and lace. Interesting and certainly flavoursome. A sweetish oaky note in the mouth. Smooth and very wasy to drink. Bit of fruit, bit of cake. Nice stuff.
