Clotted cream fudge on the nose with perhaps a touch of brandy. Full palate that leans towards the malt but with a firm peppery finish. Really great stuff! hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2009
Cask at Bankers Draft (JDW), Bedford, in ’Spoons BF ’09. Amber with a white head. Very tempting sweet oily malt aroma with earthy notes. Slightly sour malty taste and a bitter grapefruit finish. Well balanced and very good. Definitely best of the festival so far. gary07734 (500) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - OCT 30, 2009
Pint in weatherspoons, pours golden blonde, slightly hazy, aroma is light hoppy, fruity citrus. Taste is mild but pleasant, some hops, citrus and apple, background sweetness and a slightly spicy hop finish. Very nice, went back for more. cgarvieuk (24462) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 11, 2009

Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Amber to brown with white head. Nice little light, tasty bitter that pushes all the session ale buttons. Light on the palate with a fresh, slightly oily hop flavour, some citrus, lemony notes and a forgiving, malty, biscuity body. We all liked it.

The Baron. Still amber brown with a slim level collar, glass milky white with lace. Pleasant opening wash of fruit; apple, orange, maybe strawberry merging into a soft lingering cashew maltiness. Sultanas and warm buttered toast. Picking up some herbal, grassy hop and almond as it drains. Gentle, silky, insinuating..Englishness. Very pleasant little lunchtime sessions. harrisoni (18578) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2009
Cask handpull at County Hotel, JDW, Ashford. Brown colour, lasting off white head. Not much aroma. Some soft hop and yeast and soft fruit. Some almost spice in the flavour which carries in onto the finish. Very good condition. Some hop sting on finish. Very drinkable. OK bitter.

A Mes rate. Cask at Baker Street ’Sporks.beerledgend (1196) - Waterloo, Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 16, 2009
Copper coloured with a slim off white head. Fairly straight forward stuff. Clean and drinkable. Slightly earthy on the malt, nicely citric and dry on the hops. Pretty decent.
Dark orange/amber in colour with thin creamy white head. Peachy/caramel aroma. Smooth silky malt caramel mouthfeel. Short palate which makes you want more as a great session beer.
