Bottle. This bottle is 4.5%. Amber Brown in colour. Good off-white foamy head. Malty; grainy malts, caramel. Fruity; raisins and apples. Hoppy; rather earthy hops. Sweet malty fruity and quite dry throughout. OK. Easy drinking. (2015-09-14)

Beese (2570) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 11, 2014
Cask at The Moon Under Water (JDW), Watford on 14 May 2012. Poured a hazy, deep golden colour, with a spotty white head. Aroma of malt, straw and floral hops. Caramel in the flavour, with biscuity malt and raisins. Finish was a note of fruity esters, chewy grain and brown sugar.

Nice caramel colour. What I would call your classic bitter. Pleasant flavour with a light bitter taste.

berkshirejohn (6287) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 1, 2012
Cask at the Old Manor (JDW), Bracknell. Golden amber with a loose cream head; floral aroma - perhaps a dash of elderflower? - dry, biscuity malt flavour; and a clean, lightly bitter finish. Fairly average, but a pleasant pint.

ManVsBeer (9212) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2012
Malty with a weak texture, mostly bitterness than anything else. Maybe a bad barrel.

harrisoni (17712) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2012
Cask handpull at County Hotel Spoons Ashford. Guy behind the bar said "are all these ales different?" i said yeah. He said but if they are both pale how can you tell tge difference? It was a longish chat where i explained malts hops yeast and water. Crazy. Mid dark amber colour lasting beige head. Its a pretty decent session bitter to be honest. Some light biscuit touch of hedgerow fruit. Pretty drinkable and decent
