Nut brown. Roasty malt aroma. Remarkably dry with light-medium body. Resiny hops along with roasty malt dominates. BlackHaddock (7518) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2012
Saturday 27th Oct 2012: local CAMRA surveying trip. The first pub we hit is the only Oakwell Brewery owned place in Shropshire, The Seven Stars, in a hamlet called Cold Hatton (strange pub to have as your only outpost in a county).
My first pint was of this, and I really enjoyed it. Hand-pulled into a UK sleeve, the body was a good brown, deep amber with red hints: on top an off-white head of foaming bubbles that stayed the distance and also left heavy lacing on my glass.
The aroma was malty and semi-sweet, as was the taste. Mild toffee flavours are joined by fruitiness and a nutty note before the dry, bitter finish, in this well balanced brew.
More to this than the Oakwell Senior. DanielBrown (4527) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 15, 2012
Hand pulled at The Ship Inn, Leicester. Amber Bitter, with lacing. Reasonable bitter, some white pepper and nut. Slightly watery, fatty mouthfeel. Some off flavours somewhere. But not that bad. OK really. jamesie1857 (2273) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2012
On cask in Litton, Derbyshire - a deep brown Yorkshire style bitter, with a good head on it. Malty aroma, and first taste. Nothing out of the ordinary, but pleasant nonetheless. RichardW (1813) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2010
Cask, Magpie, Carlisle. Reddish, malty bitter. Solid, nice tangy aftertaste, good balanced aroma with just about the right amount of carbonation. The finish becomes slightly citric and rounds off very well.

Cask at the Punch Bowl, Warwick. Deep gold with a thin, dense, beige, head; malt aroma; thin malt flavours; weak hops to finish. A forgettable bitter. fonefan (50004) - VestJylland, DENMARK - JUN 18, 2009
Cask (handpump) @ Devonshire Cat, Wellington Street, Devonshire Green, Sheffield, South Yorkshire, England S1 4HG.DruncanVeasey (8260) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - AUG 4, 2008
Clear medium orange amber color with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, roasted, caramel, dusty, fruity, light nutty, moderate hoppy, orange, dusty. Flavor is moderate sweet and bitter with a average duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft to flat. 
The Shakespeare’s Head, Leicester. Chesnut half lined with lace. Lightly sulphurous nose with some musty hop reinforcement. Soggy Digestive, milky stillness, definite note of wood. Pleasantly hopped, mellow bitter. But completely unexceptional. MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2008
A Mes rate: Gravicask at the Bricklayers.harrisoni (19024) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2008
Mid brown with a good white head. Very "green" malty aroma with some very slight smokey notes and some nice prickly hops. Nice nutty malt in the mouth with good hoppage and a nice bitter finish. A solid but not particularly exciting bitter.
Cask gravity at Bricklayers Arms 2nd Annual Yorkshire BF 08. Chestnut colour with lasting thin beige, toffeeish yeasty aroma. Sweetish malt in mouth, with some dryness on finish. Bit of butter on aroma. Finish is a vague tickle. Drinkable, but not remarkable. It’s a bitter.
