"Brewed to a recipe combining pale and crystal malts with choicest traditional ale hop varieties. The beer has a long, deep, bitter-sweet finish with fruit and hop notes, a strong ale which is distinctively hoppy."
Michael Jackson 500 Classic Brews.

I had this at Llewelyn’s Pub. Pours copper with a very thin off white head. Taste biscuit, caramel, mildly sweet. I thought this was ok. I could drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

all in all not too dissimilar from it’s canned or bottled cousin, but is milder and much smoother on a cask pull. a staple around bars in the south wales area, SA is usually my brains brew of choice.

Cask pint at the Assembly Rooms, Epsom. Pours clear chestnut with a white head. Aroma of malt and caramel. Not much taste. Sweetish finish.

Cask @ Red Lion Pub, Luton
Piwo w kolorze bursztynowym. W 100% czyste i klarowne. Spokojnie można zobaczyć opuszki palców z drugiej strony szkła. rowne. Piana taka sobie, biała, zwiewna, pozostawia tylko niewielki lacing. W aromacie chleb razowy, biszkopty, trochę karmelu i odrobina toffi. Zapach jest bardzo słaby i szybko się ulatnia. W smaku podobnie. Dodatkowo muśnięcie ciemnych owoców. Tekstura wodnista. Goryczka niewielka. Proste, niczym nie zaskakujące piwo. Nudne, po prostu nudne i bez charakteru.

Cask at the Hope and Champion, Beaconsfield. Poured a crystal clear medium amber with a long lasting frothy white head. The aroma is sweet malt woofy hop. The flavour is moderate bitter with a smooth fresh malty fruit woofy hop bitter palate and a lingering bitter finish. Medium to light bodied with soft carbonation.

Cask - Darkish brown, not quite full off white head. Good mouthfeel, little aroma. Easy drinking but little body or finish.

Towey1989 (3429) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2017
Cask at The Green Dragon, Leek (JDW) A clear deep amber colour with a medium off white head. Aroma of caramel, bready malts, slight red berries, some mineral and subtle earthy hops. Taste of caramel, bready malts, some red berries, a hint of mineral, a touch of yeast and subtle spicy, earthy hops. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A soft, slightly fruity, spicy hop bitterness in the finish. A simple, malty bitter with a touch of mineral, fruit and subtle English hops. Ok.
