This beer has a gentle and pleasant aroma with a fine dark gold/amber colour and a good creamy head that clings down the glass. Taste wise, this has a malty, fruity sweetness and a long, rounded but refreshingly dry finish.

A reliable beer - nothing amazing, nut sometimes I just want a nice pint of bitter and this is always a nice pint of bitter!

tommann (3975) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 10, 2017
Cask at the Physician, Birmingham. Pours dark orange with a small head. Aroma is dark fruits. Taste has hedgerow fruits and bready malt.

BeardedAvenger (1197) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2017
Cask at White Hart, Chobham. Vague musty aroma. Light brown. Blotchy off-white head. Lightly spiced umami with a sour edge. Twigs and spices. Light-medium bodied. Slick but watery. Flat carbonation. Low key finish. A bit of an odd one. Trad twiggy bitter with sour spicey notes. But may have been passed its best.

kwik-lime (2066) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2017
Cask at the Gomshall Mill. Light malt, not much hop, very smooth texture, a touch of fruity tang in the finish. Decent session ale.

imdownthepub (15395) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2016
Cask conditioned at The Old Harkers Arms, Chester. Gold to amber with white head. There is a light bitterness to this, some caramel, some sweetness. The hops a light, leafy. It’s fine.

berkshirejohn (6687) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2016
Cask at the White Hart, Chobham. Bright straw with a tight cream head; light citrus aroma; clean and grainy in the mouth with a light lemony citrus taste; and a lingering grassy bitterness to finish. A pleasant, summer, golden ale, hardly a bitter.

AshtonMcCobb (6953) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 28, 2016
On cask at the Armoury in Shrewsbury.
Appearance - amber with a decent head.
Nose - elusive but delicate citrus and pale malt.
Taste - light lime and biscuit.
Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a fairly good finish. Bordering on astringent but happy to sup some more.
Overall -
