Hand pulled at the Corner House, Birmingham. Oh dear... not sure whether this was kept bad or started out that way. Thin, rank, stinky stuff. Tasteless initially then a sour, unbalanced seedy banana malt which lurks like a bad smell. chriso (7533) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 20, 2005
Looking for a pint in an unfamiliar part of town, I wandered into a pub at random and found only one cask beer. And when I got home, I found, to my surprise, that I had never rated it before. So, a bit of a result. Copper colour. A fruity and sweet best bitter, with very limited hop presence. A touch too sweet for my palate. Perfectly drinkable, but profoundly middle of the road. A touch too sweet for my palate.

Nice hoppy traditional english bitter, with some chocolaty grassy hints. Wonderful dark colour to it, very very refreshing. I last enjoyed one of these at The Dirty Duck, opposite the RSC in Stratford-U-Avon. Great Ale a touch on the weak side ABV wise. BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - OCT 19, 2004
Cask: Clear coppery hue. Malty, slightly toasted aroma. Smooth balanced palate, sweet mild biscuity malt, a touch of caramel, hoppy overtones, drying a little in the finish. JonMoore (2067) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 10, 2004
Cask at The Rising Sun, Warsash. White, short lived head. Floral hop aroma with some fruitiness. Dry with caramel sweetness. Some bitter hops in the finish. Creamy and pleasant. Not bad at all.

Drank it in Lyndhurst and loved it. Went down great with my Plowman’s lunch. Nate (4279) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 19, 2004
On tap. - Light fruity aroma, little hops. Fresh fruit, grassy, sweet. Medium copper-amber clear with small off-white creamy lacing head. Medium watery body, with light-medium carbonation. Starts with light sweetness and light-medium acidity, mostly a carbonic burn. Mild fruity grassy notes. Finish is sweeter, less acidic, and a pleasant nutty bitter. After has nice fruity remnants in back o the throat, while a strong bitter remains on the back of the tongue. Nice bitter. imdownthepub (14557) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2004
Cask Conditioned at The Swan, Moreton in Marsh, Gloucs. Golden brown with little head. Flat thin boiled flavours with a fungal earthiness. Poor quality bitter, best avoided. RichardGretton (4770) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 17, 2003
Standard flat appearing bitter with virtually no aroma. Watery flavour with a slight hint of caramel. Overall a fairly basic bitter. Mungo (2470) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - NOV 10, 2003
Cask conditioned. Aroma of floral hops with some earthiness and pearlike fruitiness. Dry body with growing caramel sweetness. Some hop bitterness in the finish. Creamy and pleasant but lacking in flavour.
