Clear caramel color with a small layer on top. Moderate intensity in the aroma. Medium body and a soft carbonation level. A bit over to the sweet side. Unbalanced in a way. Toffee and caramel malty stuff in the flavor. Some carbonation would have lifted this one a lot!.
[Cask at Chelmsford & Mid Essex Winter Beer Festival -17]

500ml from the Chatsworth Estate shoppe, please take our money! - Uneventfully balanced at a high level: measured biscuit malts with nutty hints, spiced with UK herbal tea and citrus, melissa hops, on the cusp of punching through, held back and curtailed by that most British 4%. Good weekday aperitif, or palate tonic. At half its royal ransom...

By gravicask at Chelmsford & Mid Essex Winter Beer Festival. Shared with Cunningham. Clear golden-brown coloured body. Naked at the top. Restrained aroma of earth and caramel. Blended taste of nuts, caramel and Citrus. Oily hops to a mild bitter ending. Okay, rather anonymous though (17.02.2017).

Cask. Copper colour. Sweet biscuity malts, caramel, some nuts. Citrus fruity and a bit spicy. Grassy hop. Sweet malty fruity throughout. Ends dry and rather bitter. Very drinkable. (2008)

AshtonMcCobb (6757) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 4, 2016
On cask at the Yorkshire Bridge by Bamford. Appearance - golden amber with a decent head. Nose - sweet malt and cake. Taste - more sweet malt then dry astringent malt on the finish. Palate - close to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry finish, though a touch astringent. Overall - solid but not worth the revisit.

Gravity at the Guisborough Beer Festival. Copper with an off white froth. Minimal aroma. The taste has citrus and marmalade over toast. A tasty bitter.

Mr_Pink_152 (5246) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - APR 2, 2016
Tried at the Red Lion Bakewell. Amber colour with a white head. Aroma is fruity caramel. Taste light sweet to a light bitter finish.

skortila (5950) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - MAY 18, 2015
On cask @ Ashford Arms.1/2 pint. Aroma has caramel, bit nutty, fruity hops. Clear, amber coloured beer with a thin lace. The taste is light sweet, light bitter. There is toffee, bit citrus, some flowers. Low carbonation, easy drinking beer. Okay.
