Cimbasso (977) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2016
Sampled from a bottle from the brewery. Amber colour with a white head. A delicious light bitter. Very tasty considering it is only 3.8% ABV. Earthy and fruity flavours with pleasant notes of oranges and lemons. Even some hints of peach. Light carbonation and lightly bitter finish. Very tasty. johndoughty (5521) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 2, 2010
Bottle. Big head upon pouring which took time to dissipate. Bitter with some fruitiness.Plenty of body for its reasonably low strength. An above average but not very exciting bitter. Fin (10823) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 8, 2011
Bottle from Co-op Marston, Oxford, purchased & consumed 08.09.11 Pours warm gold/light amber with a white head. Good bitterness from the off, quite impressed with what the Fuggles and Goldings are capable off if enough are used in a standard English bitter as they have been used here. Bit dry towards the end and whilst quite simple without too many other pointers to remark on, its a damn decent bottled bitter.

Bottle conditioned, 500ml from Culham Post Office, Culham, Oxon. Burnished gold with white head. Considering the abv, this packs a decent punch, there is a malty fruitiness, a hint of orange skin perhaps then a dry, earthy, bittering English style hop note. A decent session type bitter. downender (8774) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2013
Cask-conditioned at the Herefordshire & Worcestershire beeriodical, the Seven Stars, Bristol March 2013. Amber coloured with a slight, off-white head. Hedgerow fruits, a touch of tangerine and some leafy hops, leading to a decent, bitter finish. Enjoyable.

Bottle from Saucy Pears.
Appearance - hazy amber with a decent head.

Taste - digestive biscuit, light chocolate in the back and a dried fruit note.
Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a balanced dry finish.
Overall - this grew on me. Not bad at all. fiulijn (21022) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 12, 2009
<i>Gravity dispense at Pig’s Ear Festival 2008, London</i>BlackHaddock (7583) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2012
Hazy light amber color. Nice aroma, hoppy, light honey, malt, camomile; interesting. Less adventurous flavor, with medium-sweet toffee and very light vegetables touch. Correct bitterness. Not bad.
Brown 500ml bottle: best before Aug 2013, poured into an Abbot Ale glass tankard during Aug 2012.
Slightly cloudy orange colour: dull old gold maybe. On top a thick head os white foam.
The nose and taste were both fruity and hoppy: a good blend of flavours with the hops being the strongest influence giving the beer a dry and extremely hop finish.
This brewery produces some lovely beers: not their best but still a very fine beer. SarkyNorthener (4765) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2013
Bottle conditioned. Golden orange beer with residual head. Aroma of freshly cut grass. Taste is bitter hops and malts. Basic bitter. OK. maeib (8751) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUN 10, 2012
Bottled 26/05/12. An orangey gold coloured beer with a tiny rim of whitish bubbles. Juicy citricity in the nose with a bit of spoiling BCA gone wrong rubber. Pretty bitter in the mouth with more citrus and rubber. There’s a little chocolatey sourness and toast as well. Enjoyable enough, but has flaws.
