Cask @ Stone Jug, Clophill. Amber pour, flat. Not much in the way of aroma: vinous and grassy with some malt in the background. The taste is a sweetish umami, malty, hints of smoke. Not what I was expecting at all. Watery, thin palette. A decent enough beer but quite boring. Theydon_Bois (19189) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2012
Cask at the Seven Stars, Rugby - 12/12/12.
Clear pale golden with a decent off white head.
Nose is toffee, malt, fruit notes, touch of smoke.
Taste follows, hops evident, less on the smoke front but still some evident.
Medium bodied with soft carbonation leading to a light bitter finish.
Decent average bitter. HogTownHarry (6622) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 24, 2012
Handpull at The Wheatsheaf (Southwark). Clear amber-gold, smallish but lasting white frothy head. Dry and definitely not sweet grain and herbal/floral aroma, very light alcohol. Taste follows, even more bitter, with a bit of "Burton Nip" mineral/iron tang in the background. Light body, very light carbonation, grainy up front and sort of herbal/floral/mineral dryness in the finish. Decent - I may go get a full pint. thepegjett (1260) - Cambridge (via Winnipeg), Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2011

First tasted this in Babbity Bowser, Glasgow in January 1993. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear pale copper red in colour with a thin white head. Dusty hops in the short aroma. A thin mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malts give a juicy note of redcurrant fruit and sweet glycerine. Dusty hops give a dry dusty whack of bitter resins in the long aftertaste. Finish is bitter sweet with dry orange peel notes evident. So so session ale.

Elm Tree, Cambridge. Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is caramel malts, fruits, toffee and some mild herbal notes. Flavour is fruits, some mild toffee, earth and mild yeastyness. Rather bready bitter.
The Merchant, Rugby. Golden amber, high condition with plenty of lace. Metallic apricot aroma. Mellow hairy hop fruit hinting at apricot and gooseberry. Bready biscuit linger, solid bittering hops, loads of lace. Fresh and tasty sessions, bit too metallic. yespr (44706) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - NOV 21, 2008
