Dec, 2014 Alfies, Winchester. A hop forward session bitter. A little too rasping in the finish for my taste. [2.5]
Feb, 2017 The Elm Tree, Southampton. A pleasant session bitter in excellent condition. Very drinkable and satisfying. [3.2]
On draught at the Wheatsheaf, Shedfield, Hampshire. Aroma is of cereal and has a slightly resinous hint. Really nice orange colour, brilliant appearance, slight head. Exceptional taste of grain, the sweetness immediately becoming very bitter with a peppery background. Great mouthfeel, the bitterness goes on and on, with a very long finish bordering on astringency. Overall an extremely good beer. The bitterness is exceptional and may put some off, but this is one of the best cask beers out there right now. madmitch76 (24360) - , Essex, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2014

Amber colour, little in the way of a head. Rich malty aroma with a hopy kick. Perfectly pleasant, well balanced beer with a light bitter finish. Theydon_Bois (19189) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - SEP 15, 2012
Cask at the Albion, Winchester - 09/09/12.
Mid amber with a small white head that soon cleared to nothing.
Caramel and malt on the nose, slight diacetyl tones.
Flavour follows nose with a little dark fruit in there, again a tad buttery.
Medium bodied with moderate carbonation leading to a dry finish.
File under ’W’ for whelmed!
