COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Occasional. Has also been available bottle conditioned.
This 4.3% abv beer is a bronze coloured brew, created using a pale, black and wheat malts and a blend of Progress and dwarf hops. A pleasing, slightly spicy aroma leads on to a gentle bitterness that builds to impressive heights, whilst the malty body shows its depth of character.

Fin (10917) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 19, 2011
Cask, handpump, The Hop Pole, Aylesbury, Bucks’ 15th November 2011. Pours bronze in colour with hardly a head of note. There is a simple middling bitterness, but you know overall I find this just a little drab and it failed to hit the mark with me, one of those that would be described as a Boring Brown Bitter (BBB) A6 A3 T6 P3 Ov12 3.0

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2009
A Mes rate. Cask handpull at the Junction Tavern.
Orange amber colour with no head. Caramel and sulphur dominate. Slightly sourness. Very poor condition. Seriously, if the brewers knew what these guys did to their beer, they probably wouldn’t send anything to the Junction.

DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2009
Cask in the market porter. Alround rating: Nutty brown ale, some caramel and chocolate hints, grassy bittering hop. A bitter apparently?

chriso (21656) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2007
Cask (gravity dispense) at Reading Beer Festival, April 2006. Mid brown colour. Mainly nutty malt and subtle berry fruits. A smattering of earthy hops. Smooth mouthfeel. Not too sweet. Pretty decent.

2.7
Ungstrup (38423) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 9, 2007
Cask at GBBF 2006. A pale orange-brown beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is quite light - what is there is sweet with notes of caramel. The flavor is sweet malty with light notes of caramel and hops, leading to a slighlty bitter end.

omhper (25750) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 8, 2006
[Cask at GBBF] Pale brownish amber. Fruity and lightly ashy. Sweet and medium bodied. Notes of honey and grass. Fairly soft, although perhaps a bit mellow. Rather low bitterness.

2.8
Mungo (2470) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2006
Gravity cask @ Reading Beer Festival 2006. Sweet malt and fruity flavours. On the whole not too much happening and a bit thin.

3.2
harrisoni (19341) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2006
Cask gravity at Reading BF 06. Chestnut, no head. Quite fruity malty beer. Fine, nice red berry. Bit of sourness on end. Fine, nothing wrong with it. Berry is nice.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - MAY 1, 2006

2.9
Nekronos (4175) - Xalapa, MEXICO - APR 25, 2006
NOt so bitter, interesting foam considered with most of the beers in the festival. Amber in colour, aromatic.
