Bottle at CK. Cloudy walnut pour. Nose and flavor hold very pleasant bready malts and excellent grassy and spicy hops. A nice hoppy bitter. anders37 (27062) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 9, 2012

Craft. Clear amber beer, tidy white head. Light dry palate. Low carbonation. Nice blood orange marmalade hops. Not much else going on but what there is is good. Neutral finish.
UPDATED: APR 21, 2012 Cask at CBC, London. Pours clear, bright ruby with a foamy, yellow-beige head. Toasty caramel aroma, some light pine, grass. Medium sweet flavor, some toast, light cocoa, caramel, coconut, grass, pine. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Sticky finish both sweet and bitter, light coffee and cocoa hints, some oily pine, caramel. Very nice beer. superflyguy (439) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2012
the least good of the Buxton brews i’ve had. but still much better than a lot of beer.
deep murky cherry brown. no head.
aroma of sweet malt and toffee. a good hop aroma too.
flavour is quite complex but doens’t quite hang together properly. spicy, hoppy, toffee, smokey. intersting

Cask at the Euston Tap, London. Creamy dark copper-brown, nice foamy head. Buttery nose, butterscotch, tart ruby ale. Nice malty bitter. OK DruncanVeasey (8283) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2011
BC from the brewery. Murky copper with a stable cream collar that falls way with sipping. Slightly dribble-making, mostly hop aroma wafting headily with pollen, Neopolitan ice cream, blackcurrant...turning increasingly to liquorice. Lavender-like, blackcurrant and liquorice notes dominate the palate with an added chaff of dry roasted. Another winner from Buxton humming softly with the joys of the hop. cgarvieuk (25992) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 7, 2011

Bottle. My first from this brewery and it created a reasonable impression. Slightly reddish in appearance with a medium head. Some hops are present with a trace of maltiness. Nothing special but quite interesting.
