A rich aroma of hops and malt develops a full texture in the mouth. It has a long, deep, bitter-sweet finish. Without doubt an exceptional best bitter.

Everything I hate about real ale- little flavour or complexity, weak and boring. That a company has basically built a living off the back of this beer, and sold it on for much dollar, is simply astounding.

Cask @Bristol Harbour Festival. Small frothy head, dark amber colour, clear. Aroma: roasted malts, grain, bread. Bitter taste, medium to full body, long finish, soft carbonation. Quite ok.

Cask at the Old Road Tavern, Chippenham. Some lemon hops up front but increasingly dominated by caramel. Yup, too​ much caramel by the end.

Pint at the Salamander. Pours copper, thin head. Slight toffee, malt aroma. Biscuit, quenching, good first pint. Nice, if nothing complex.

Nurmis (810) - Oulu, FINLAND - OCT 14, 2016
On tap at Trinity pub in London. Caramel, bisquit. Soft mouthfeel and low carbonation. Basic.

Very punchy aroma to go with the punchy flavour. Creamy and smooth to drink. Very drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

(Cask at Kitty’s, 20160317) The beer poured deep amber and clear. Its head was small, white and it lasted long. Aroma had grass, earth and toffee. Palate was medium bodied with low carbonation. Flavours were grass, honey, malts, toffee, sweetness and bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet and bitter. A surprisingly sweet brew and therefore not my thing.
