Cask at The Crown, Charlton-On-Otmoor 28-09-07 Poured amber in colour with small white head. A nice fruit beer, sweeter than I recall but with a nice hoppy flourish and dryness at the end, a tasty session beer, and another beer that I can’t believe that I’ve not rated before.

Cask. At The Harp, Covent Garden, London. Clear amber pour, with a decent lasting frothy straw-coloured head. Quite a roasty sweet caramel aroma to this, but am I picking up the dreaded diacetyl? - It seems a tad papery and artificially sweet, but the dry herbal hops are decent. The taste - less of that buttery, caramel pudding character, the sweet malt is a little roasty, and the dry herbal hops are again just fine. Very light body, perhaps too much bitter astringency for the sweetness of the malt, a bitter, dry linger doesn’t detract too much, but the weakest thing I had at The Harp when all is said and done. stoutfellow2 (20) - Peterborough, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2007

(RBESG 2007, Cask at The Barony, Edinburgh) Golden color, white head. Hoppy, grassy aroma with something making me feel like I am in a stable. Hoppy flavor with grassy and citric notes. detroitsteel (235) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2007
The Stage, Market Deeping. A standard bitter, hops to the fore with some malty sweetness, a hit of citrus fruit and a dry finish. Par for the course. FatPhil (16102) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 20, 2007

Drank on 04-25-07 at The Harp, London in a nonick pint. Nice amber color with a one finger off white head that left nice lacing. Malt and floral hops to the nose. Floral and pine hops along with a heavy dose of malt to the taste. Aftertaste of malt, grass, and some floral bitterness. Nice handdrawn palate with a little carbonation. A nice solid bitter.
