A little bit on the dark side for a British bitter, but that’s not a major flaw. Nice creamy head that stays right to the bottom of the glass. Nice floral hop aroma, with a very nice malty, almost raisin-like fragrance.
The taste is a bit lighter than I would have expected, but everything is in such harmonious balance that this ale gets points for that alone.
When this brewery was under the Higson’s label, I thought it was one of England’s best ales - certainly Liverpool’s best! The new ownership and brewers at Cains has done a magnificent job in keeping ales in this region among the world’s finest for the style! mike_77 (6597) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - JAN 6, 2009
A medium brown bitter topped with a thin creamy head. Clean and fresh beer with a hint of floral hop and a dry finish.

UPDATED: OCT 25, 2008 Rather nice, I have to say. Quite drinkable. Cheap enough, too, for this old miser. yngwie (17038) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 26, 2007
Bottle. (tasting at papsoe’s) Clear, copper beer with a dense, off-white head. Malty, slightly roasted nose and flavor. The flavor has a vague but pleasant hoppy fruityness and bitterness as well, especially towards the finish. Medium, quite dry mouthfeel. A bit brown-ale-ish for a bitter, but a decent beer indeed.

(Can 44 cl) Courtesy of Bov. Clear, amber golden with a creamy, off-white head leaving some laces. Light in body, light notes of nuts, an edge of cardboard and a vague, underlying tartness. Dry finish with a subdued bitterness. 061007 DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2007
Canned. Aroma gives me sweet hints of spice, grassy hop, but its a bit minimal. Taste is a similar game fruity and hints of pepper in there, leaves a good fruity maltness in the mouth and is very drinkable. I dig this actually, and i can buy it from the shop directly across from my house im talkin i could talk to the owner from my front door. harrisoni (18436) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2007
440ml can from Asda, Liverpool. Rich deep chestnut colour with thin off white head. Malty bitter aroma. Some digestive biscuit rich malt. Some candy sugar in mouth before bittering hops kick in . A fullish decent bitter ruined by pasteurisation. Otherwise it carries a fair number of items from the cask version, especially the bitter hops on the finish.
