COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered.
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."

Bottle from The Ship Heworth. Pours deep ruby, small quick fading head. Flavours of nuts and malt but also quite watery. Ok but nothing special

UPDATED: DEC 7, 2015 Brown/amber body with a thin creamy head, nice lacing is evident immediately. Real sweet toffee and caramel are the forefront of the taste. Not really getting any hop aroma on this.Lower carb.

exeter (540) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 7, 2015
Pours a clear dark copper colour. Has wispy head with good lace. If you’ve ever had fullers ESB then you’ll think this beer is 75% of it.

500ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours clear amber brown, long lasting thin white head. Aromas of caramel and banana. Taste is all toffee. Far too sweet. Hard work.

Great example of a British bitter. Really nice and enjoyable beer with good balance of malt and hops.

Good beer to start the night off with. Bit of fruit but not overpowering. Low carbonation. Nice easy beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

beeebon (508) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - NOV 9, 2014
Pours a copper amber colour with a slightly tan coloured creamyish head which lingers. Aroma is sweet caramel malt, biscuit, slightly spicey and vaguely stewed fruit. Taste is medium sweet initially before balancing out with a light to medium bitterness which then works out quite dry on the finish. Noticable carbonation which mellows and not too watery in the mouth. Overall a pretty nice bitter!
