Cask-conditioned at the Seven Stars, Bristol, October 2016. Dark brown with a slight off-white, head. Aroma of sweetish berry fruits and leafy hops. Flavour was also sweet with a touch more fruit, touch of chocolate and short, bitter, finish. Good. berkshirejohn (6650) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 16, 2015
Cask at the "Southern Ale Adventure" Beer Festival at the Prince of Wales, Farnborough. Interesting to see that this hasn’t been rated for a while, so presumably it’s making a comeback - to me, this is everything an English bitter should be. It’s a bright chestnut colour with a loose cream head; the taste is a spectacular combination of Kentish hops and treacle toffee; leading to a dry finish. A really satisfying pint. madmitch76 (25537) - , Essex, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2011

Chelmsford Beer Festival. Hazy darkish brown beer. Suddy white head. Light semi dry palate. Fresh malts - mild chocolate and a little coffee. Nicely balanced by mild dark orangey hop. Semi dry finish. Bitter aftertaste.
Cask, Kings Head, Kingsdown, Kent. Dark reddish brown looks with a slight beige head. Fairly subdued sweet malt aroma. Largely unremarkable malt driven flavour. A little thin and watery with some hop bitterness towards the finish. Drinkable, but not especially worth lingering over. Bullit (4686) - Buffalo, New York, USA - OCT 10, 2010
