1.1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
a very strange aroma that almost puts one off drinking it at all. odd, slightly chalky texture, with a weird chemical taste. maybe it just doesn’t travel well, but on the evidence so far I won’t be heading to Totnes to try it again
Cask gravity at Reading BF 2017. Clear amber colour lasting cream head. Some malt some wood some fruit on the aroma. Biscuit in the flavour anyway its an interesting malty hoppy beer. Pretty good. AshtonMcCobb (6669) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 22, 2015
On cask at the Albert Inn, Totnes, Devon.
Appearance - golden with a decent head.
Nose - biscuit malt, floral.
Taste - more biscuits. A bit of red fruit creeping in. Initially thought redcurrants, now looking like cherry stone.
Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry finish.
Overall - an old style English Bitter. This totally grew on me. ManVsBeer (10654) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2013
Burnley Beer Festival. Golden with a small head and lots of biscuit malts in its character. There’s also a fair smack of cherry in its aroma and flavour. cellargenius (1) - Devon, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2011 does not count
fantastic rustic traditional beer, drunk 20 metres from where it was brewed at the Albert Inn Totnes downender (8687) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2009
On gravity at the Portcullis, Bristol 10/12/09. A solid session amber session beer with a slight, off-white head. Aroma of biscuity malts, red fruit and a hint of earthy hop. Flavour started with some sweet malts, more fruit and a decent, bitter finish. Ok.

Cask@Nottingham Beer Festival, 2008. Amber beer with a chlorine aroma, and a mildy toffee and weakly hopped flavour. Overall a very disappointing beer due to the aroma. imdownthepub (14745) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2008
Cask conditioned at The Albert Inn, Totnes, Devon. Amber with white head. What a pleasant surprise, this is an archetypical quaffing bitter, just doing it slightly better. Biscuity dry malt with a floral, pleasingly standard tea like hop. The locals had suggested that the brewer hadn’t quite got his beer right yet, well on this evidence, he has.
