Fra håndpumpe på pub i London jan-11: Tydelig kjeks (Maris Otter malt?) og engelske humler. Lett karbonert som gir en myk munnfølelse. Medium bitterhet. God pubøl med bare 3,6%, gjør pubcrawl til en fornøyelse og ikke anstrengelse.

Mild aroma has cherry with nice hoppiness. Bit malty aroma also as this gets warmer. Bit hazy dark amber. Nice frothy head stays quite well. Taste is bit woodywith citrus in finish. Palate is thin, bit watery, sour. Interesting.

Hand pulled pint taken at the lovely ’Faltering Fullback’ in North London; Oct 2011: UK pint sleeve glass, unmarked. The beer was a pale copper colour, clear and bright. The head a good showing of off-white bubbles which settled and stayed. A lot better looking than the bottled version I reviewed some years back.
Good healthy aroma of hops and malts, no overpowering smell, just enough to let you know it’s a beer in your hand.
Very easy to drink, I had three pints and wanted more, but the wife needed food. A really good blend of flavours, like the nose nothing powerful, just a subdued pleasantness all round.

First tasted this at the Bull Inn, Paisley in August 1994. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear copper red in colour with a thick white head. Strong aroma of soft toffee notes. Thin but creamy mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malts give a robust digestive biscuit malt with a strong sweet flavour of Highland toffee full in the mouth. Slight prickle of dusty hops short in the aftertaste gives a slight earthy wet leaves note. Finish is sweet and malty with a hint of dry currants present in the mouth. An enjoyable session bitter

Low-impact simple bitter. Standard copper color with a modest white head that quickly dissipates. The nose is light, a little floral with some biscuity malts present too. The taste is lightly sweet, with a watery, simple finish. Refreshing enough.
