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.

Ingredients: Maris Otter pale malt. Challenger and East Kent Goldings hops.

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

Gravity Cask Half Pint at GBBF 2009 (Day 5), Earl’s Court, London Aug 2009 - Amber in colour. Malty; toasted malts, caramel, hint of chocolate. Hoppy; slight grassy hops. Fruity. Sweet malty with a bitter hoppy edge. OK. Drinkable. (2009-08)

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

Nurmis (627) - Oulu, FINLAND - OCT 14, 2016
On tap at Trinity pub in London. Caramel, bisquit. Soft mouthfeel and low carbonation. Basic.

ekstedt (6708) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 17, 2016
Cask at GBBF 2016. Clear amber, white head. Caramelly malt, fruity, floral hops. Light to medium bodied, low to medium carbonation. Dry, medium bitterness.

MissPxx (970) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2016
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.

Moebbels (792) - FINLAND - JUN 25, 2015
Clear copper body with a quickly settling head that laces the glass. Nose has lovely sweet caramel and bisquit notes. Taste starts off nutty and sweet and then ends in a hefty, lingering bitterness. Soft carbobation and medium palate. Nice simple bitter.

MrBlueSky93 (524) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2015
Flagon from Cellar Door, Four Oaks. Pours hazy amber with a single finger cream coloured head. Aroma of toasty malts, biscuit, dark fruits, citrus. Taste is much the same. Run of the mill.
