Bottled. Goldeny amber colour with a small white, but longlasting head. Aroma is fruits, some mild bready and biscuity maltiness along with a bit berryish notes. Flavour is sweet and crispy malts, with some floral and berryish notes kicking in. Mellow.

Sampled cask conditioned at The Crown Inn, Hesket Newmarket, Cumbria.
Amber coloured. Toffee aroma. Chewy and malty, dryish with filling mouthfeel. Complex flavours, and chocoalte finish. This is the most outstanding of the fine ales I sampled at this pearl of a country brewpub in the northernmost corner of the English Lake District. If you want to eat here, make sure to reserve a table way ahead, as it is very popular with the locals.

Cask Handpump at the Assembly Rooms, Derby 08/02/2003 Amber coloured slightly sweet and creamy on the palate. Malty finish.

Bottled. A copper coloured beer with a whitish head. A nice smoky, malty aroma. Sweet ish in the mouth with good fruits and a nice malty body. Really easy to drink and far better and more enjoyable than the sum of its parts which is a real skill.

A copper coloured best bitter. Quite malty, but a bit of butterscotch and the malt seems rather undeveloped. Some hops come through in the flavour, but this wasn’t ready in my view. Cask (gravity dispense) at Peterborough Beer Festival.

SilkTork (5737) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2004
Peterborough Fest. Sulphury nose. Some chocolate and oaky notes in an otherwise slightly fizzy and acidic best bitter. Looking at Per’s comments, I would say that this is a beer that doesn’t travel well.

DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2007
Sulphur salts on the nose, spicey malt, dusty yeast, grassy hops.

Nekronos (4175) - Xalapa, MEXICO - SEP 6, 2006
Very storng one, amber like in colour and good foam. Too strong to have much of it.

jjsint (3089) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2015
Cask at Old Friends, Ulverston. Golden, heading to copper. Medium-sized white head. Malt, butterscotch aroma, some astringency. Not terribly engaging. Taste is better: some orangey sour adds complexity to the bittersweet character. Medium dry finish. Interesting.

niquillis (2752) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2013
On cask at The Wheatsheaf Inn, Wetheral, Cumbria. Looked OK, ruby brown with off white head. Tasted like malt vinegar with a beery appearance. Probably the worst beer I’ve ever tried. Must have been gone.
