Cask handpump. Copper colour with a short head. Hints of fruitiness and citrus. Quite bitter and semi long aftertaste. yespr (47545) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - OCT 2, 2009
From cask at Duke of Wellington. Pours clear and golden orange with a small off-white head. Light roasted and dry caramelish to breadish aroma. Bitter and roasted breadish malty base flavoured. Persisting malty into the finish. anders37 (27047) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 7, 2006

Chamberlain. Copper coloured, not much head. wooden fruity and slightly spicy thing. Flavour is quite the same along with big woodenness.
Now contract brewed by Badger, and I can only assume that Interbrew’s instructions are to turn out as much as they can as cheaply as they can, because Badger’s own beers are generally quite decent. The Flowers, however, is a very mediocre beast and really gives the impression of a macro brewer going through the motions. Thin, boring and vaguely malty with good helpings of soggy cardboard. I almost wish I’d foregone the rate and taken the alternative on offer - Harvey’s Sussex Best Bitter (which I soon moved on to) instead. Cask (handpump), Civil Service Club (well it was the only place where being able to watch the England footy match in reasonable comfort was a prospect), London SW1.

On tap at Slug and Lettuce, pours clear bronze. Aroma of bitter English malts and light caramel. Flavour of traditional bitter English malts, light toasted caramel and light spices. Not too good. Oakes (18794) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 14, 2001
One of those macrobrewed British IPAs (like Deuchars) - far too light for the style and not very interesting. FatPhil (17077) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 13, 2007
Cask (The Anchor, Cambridge)
I’ve had some dodgy ones of this in my time, but this was surprisingly good. Dark copper coloured, thin head. Nutty and malty aroma. Taste to match, nuts joined with wood too. Rather flat. Very solid bitter. imdownthepub (15326) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 11, 2003
Cask Conditioned at The Lampett Arms, Tadmarton, Oxon. A beer with a chequered past and an uncertain future, the life has left this one, but this is quite typical. Another unloved traveller that could be so much more. Boiled malt with cabbagy hops, cheaply thrown together. Why do Macro Brewery's not look after their brands instead of cost reducing?

Full pint, hand pulled cask at Mr. Thomas Chop House. Near clear copper coloured body. Tiny layer at the top. Malt-fruity nose. Ditto taste, rather jam-like leading to a resin-like bitterness. Watered. A little floury on the swallow, otherwise a quite decent one in great pub surroundings and company with Adam and Finn (Manchester, 22.01.2013).
