Originally brewed by Thwaites, the brand was contract brewed at Marston’s Wolverhampton plant (Banks’s) from 2013, then bought completely by Marston in March 2015. The brand initially continued to be sold under the Thwaites name and logo, but by 2016 the Thwaites name had been dropped.
"This rich amber beer is brewed with only the finest English ingredients. A prominent hop aroma and bitterness throughout is finely balanced with a full malt flavour, leading to a dry bitter finish."

Pleasant hop/malt aromas, burnt gold in colour with a good firm head that lasts. Delicious well balanced flavour, quite simply, a good satisfying bitter. bottle bought at Victoria Wine, Kelso

Bottled. Rusty amber, bubbly white head that disappared quickly. Light yet sharp aroma, sweetness all the way through, malt is there but only just, tired spices in the finish. Having said that, it’s a pleasing palate where the thinnish flavours hold on to be greater than the sum of their parts.

Amber in colour with a largish head of foam. Aromas are sweet malts and some apple sourness. Flavours are toffee malts and fruit with spices. Feels oddly fluffy in the mouth - like candifloss. Good dry finish. A bit sweet for me.

UPDATED: APR 17, 2004 Bottled. Purchased from Threshers, Kingsbridge, Devon. On pouring the carbonation really scared me... sounded like it would completely kill the flavour. Surprisingly the head wasn't of any size, and wasn't uniform... kind of looked like a cask head. Darkish brown, looks 'northern'. After it settled down the carbonation didn't seem as bad. First taste... Sweet, tangy, quite fruity, slightly roasted, and pleasant malt. Not very bitter. Unexpectedly good.

Strong caramel aroma with a clear biter like appearance. Bitter rounded off with a hint of sweetness, quite smooth, a good session beer.

bierkoning (13444) - La Tropica/Doarp, NETHERLANDS - SEP 17, 2003
Botle. orange brown color. Butterscotch aroma and flavor. Mustard. Some licorice and a bit of raw hops. Blackcurrant.

Not as bitter as it bills on the label, but dry and toasty like an amber lager or brown ale. Lightly roasted malt aroma. Sweet roasted nutty flavor, dry and toasty in the finish.

RobBestwick (940) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 27, 2003
toasted malty aroma, dark copper hue with a good white head, moderate carbonation, malty with a dry hop finish, some nuttiness, slighty thin and watery texture.
