A cloudy, amber beer with not much scent. It’s got a clean, bitter flavour but there’s not a lot to it. Drinkable but unmemorable. maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - NOV 11, 2012
Cask conditioned handpump Eastgate Northampton 01/11/12 An amber coloured beer with a whitish head. Full of Burton snatch in nose with nowt else. It’s in the mouth too but it’s joined there by a pleasant fruity hoppiness. Some real sweet fruitiness in this which is pretty characterful and tasty. I quite liked this. dynamiteninja (1875) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - NOV 11, 2012
Cask conditioned at the Ralph Fitz Randal (JDW), York. Thin white head. Gold body. Sulphur and grain. Bittersweet. Dry finish. Was actually concerned that I’d be served Pedigree by mistake, and then I realised this was brewed at Marston’s. Rune (13352) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 10, 2012
Shared with Finn at The Knights Templar. A festival real ale from cask that pours a copper coloured body with a slight haze. A few bubbles to the rim of the glass. Modest aroma of grass and hay. Fruity taste with malty sweetness beneath. Bittersweet endnotes. Average (London, 01.11.2012). Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 9, 2012
On cask at The Standing Order. Pours a golden colour with a fair white head. Aroma of caramel, grassy hops and musty yeast. Similar flavours with mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel.

From cask at Turnhouse. Pours clear and golden orange with a small off-white and creamy head. Aroma is light toasted and fruity. Citric, tart and bone dry. Light toasted malt. Bitter and dry finish, towards citric. DruncanVeasey (8260) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2012
The Felix, Nuneaton, 08/11/12. Not pale but dark bronze lidded with beige. Mildly phosphoric, sulphurous, egg custard aroma- having read nothing about the festival I knew at first sniff this was Batemans or Marstons. Dough and custard soured with boiled cherry sweet and mineral edge. Bog standard eggy brown English bitter. scotty (1221) - SCOTLAND - NOV 4, 2012
Nice copper coloured brew, white head lasts well. Smooth and malty, less hoppy than I expected, but a good satisfying brew! Spoons beer festival. Theydon_Bois (20435) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 3, 2012
Cask at the Rupert Brooke (JDW), Rugby - 31/10/12.
Clear amber with a bubbly off white head. Good lacing.
Light malts on the nose, barley, not a lot doing!
Tastes of light caramel, touch of hops, light toffee notes, some fruits.
Lightish bodied with soft carbonation, a little thin.
Boring. JohnRMurdoch (4997) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - NOV 2, 2012
