Bottle bought from the brewer. Poured golden brown with an average frothy off-white head. Aroma is malty, caramel, biscuit, lightly hoppy, with fruity and floral notes. Medium sweetness and bitterness. Medium body, texture a little oily, soft carbonation. Has a dry, biscuity finish. Enjoyed this.

imdownthepub (14209) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2008
Cask conditioned at The Kings Head, Norwich. Copper gold with white head. I found this to be a little disjointed but still pretty decent, I found a dusty type hop, quite spicy with an ashy, slightly metallic note, srangely I wrote autumn leaf fall, and there were no trees outside. Good stuff.

DruncanVeasey (8225) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2009
Cask gravity, The Duke of Wellington, Norwich. Brilliant headless Ribena red looks, low carbonation. Fresh hop aroma with suggestions of strawberry and tea. Gentle earth, coffee, strawberry and maybe pear fruit, husky malts late on. Sweet but with the dry hop bite to balance it. Nice.

Bottle 50 cl. Courtesy of madmitch76. Warm copper colour with an off-white head. Aroma is hoppy, almost spicy. Medium-bodied, roasted malty accents with quite some toffee and again a spicy touch. Finish has quite some hop bite with a citrusy touch. A well composed Bitter. 221109

jjsint (2822) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2015
Cask at the Golden Lion, Newmarket. Dark gold/copper. Caramel and golden syrup aroma. Taste is sweet, super-malty, slighly treacly. British as you like. Palate has a bit more thickness than these ales often have. A tasty if unassuming ale.

leaparsons (10400) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2007
Bottle. Copper with an off-white foam. Aromas are nutty and hoppy with some pear and toffee. Flavours are toffee and weetabix malts with hints of chocolate. Has light grapefruit bitterness. Some pine hops. Dry on the finish. Similar to an ESB in style. Good for a bottled beer.
