UPDATED: AUG 6, 2017 Pours a chestnut amber colour with a small off white head. Aroma is malty with some light roasted notes and fruit. A sweet caramel malty taste, boiled fruity sweets, with a decent hop bitterness and some more sweetness in the finish. berkshirejohn (6530) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2017
Cask at the Old Manor (JDW), Bracknell. A chestnut pour with a thick cream head; aroma of summer fruit; immediate English hop bitterness, with a dry berry fruit taste; and a lingering bitter finish. Rather good. Rune (12947) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 21, 2017
Cask ale, half-pint at Leeds Station Wetherspoons (JDW). Low off-white head, spotty lacing, clear copper coloured body. Slightly roasted caramel nose. Taste of dark caramel, nuts and a bit of earth. Mid-dry, roasted ending. Satisfying. (Meet-up with Man VsBeer 06.07.2017). mr_h (5631) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - JUL 15, 2017

Amber. Malty like Maltesers. Mild on palate. Okay but not special. Wouldn’t rush to drink again The_Osprey (8203) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2017
Cask handpull at The Crosse Keys London as Dorset Brewing Co Flashmans Clout, 4.5%. Dark amber brown, still with a foamy offwhite head that leaves full lacing. Aroma is airy, boiled sweets. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is quite sweet, fruit squash and cheap gummy sweets, smooth sugary malt with notes of figs and a light but building breathy twig bitterness. Calls itself a traditional bitter but it is not. It’s too fruity to be rightly called traditional in my book. I suppose over time it does gain more of a traditional simple resin and bready malt character. Ok. (5-4-6-4-14=3.3) foxo82 (902) - Bromsgrove (via Leicester), Worcestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2017
Cask at The Square Peg, Birmingham. Mild malt with minimal bitterness. No finish. Gary (1999) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 4, 2015
Cask @ Grayhounds JDW >Bridport . Dark brown with a long lasting creamy white head . malty roast nose, chocolate - like Maltesers . A powerful rich roast coats the tongue . Vibes and textures that suggest chocolate , toffee apple , earthy mild hops . That rich roast is excellent . This is a compact , flavoursome and enjoyable Bitter. I could drink this till I pass out. A good low boost beer. JorgeLee (2134) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2014
Cask in the Bree Louise. Deep chestnut brown colour, thick foam. A fairly typical south-west ale, fruity, malty and sweet. Slightly minerally (sulphur?) to smell. A tiny spicy hop in the finish, but the sweet fruitiness dominates. Pleasant enough.
