(Cask at Edgar Wallace, Strand, London, 19 May 2010) Dark amber colour with foamy, beige head. Malty, hoppy nose with notes of orange peel, nuts and generous amounts of earthy hops. Fruity, malty, slightly toasty taste with nuts, citrus, orange marmalade and lots of earthy hops in the finish. Medium body, balanced sweetness. Very nice and tasty session bitter in excellent condition. cgarvieuk (24800) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 8, 2008

Cask, handpump at The Hop Pole, Aylesbury, Bucks, 31.08.11 Pours brown with a filmy off white head. Really quite bitter with citrus, possibly bitter seville orange sort of taste, little nuttiness also. Quite decent if served a tad too warm.

Cask. An amber beer with a lazing off-white head. The aroma has notes of caramel and nuts as well as a lighter note of straw. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, fruits, nuts, and caramel, as well as a light note of butter, leading to a finish, where the caramel note lingers.

Cask conditioned at Drayton beer fest, ’07. Golden amber, hazed, white head. One of the better beers at the Festival, light, thin session bitter, easy drinking but lacking distinction. Short dry finish. Its ok. MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2007
A Mes rate:
Cask at Chelmsford Beer Festival. Slightly cloudy dark golden. Little thin in the mouth but it still manages a nice feel. Malts up front with a little toffee and a fairly decent dry bitter finish. hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 6, 2009
UPDATED: MAR 18, 2010 Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Copper with a small white head. Aroma has some faint ash and hint of chocolate malt. Rather a rough malty taste with a mid bitter finish. 18.3.10 Cask at Bankers Draft (JDW), Bedford. Same as above, except of a clothy, elastoplast background that seems to be a hallmark of ’Spoons, plus an aftertaste of monkey nuts. Enough said.

From cask at Guildfort Arms. Pours clear and golden deep orange to hazzlenut brown. Aroma is mild roasted malty. Light acidic flavour to a roasted malty flavour that goes towards breadish. Smooth malty and slight bitterness into the finish.
