[Cask at the Hobgoblin, High Wycombe] For some reason the pump clip has a rugbyist with a dogs head which is vaguely disturbing. Pours a deep amber-brown with a moderate creamy head. Lots and lots of toffee. A bit of generic fruitiness, a bit of chocolate. But mainly toffee. It should be rubbish, not least because it’s a sporting tie-in beer. But oddly it works. And it’s rather nice. I can’t explain why. First decent beer I’ve had from a brewery which normally seems to churn out dozens of boring beers. thepegjett (1260) - Cambridge (via Winnipeg), Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2012

Cask at the Prince Arthur (JDW), Fleet. Dark gold in colour with a white head; earthy, fruity aroma; richly roasted malt flavour with touches of chocolate and fruit; and a lightly bitter finish. Pleasant and drinkable.

absolutely rancid. the last cottage beer I have and will drink. typical for the brewery, yet another brown, malty, earthy beer. Hop undetectable, needed another beer to wash it down. No discernable fruity aroma or flavour, just wet soil aroma and flavour of <insert deity here> knows what mabel (9246) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 23, 2007

Cask at the Woolpack, Banbury, 14-10-07 Plenty of creamy chocolate tastes were my first pick ups from this beer, there was plenty of depth and also good level of fruitiness showing as well. This beer poured dark amber with a good malty aroma. Rune (13200) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 7, 2007
