500mlbb05/2017 from the Chatsworth Estate shop, fancy. - Rusty amber pour. Aroma of damp shrub and bread crust, chthonic bitters and toasted grains. Flavour thinner, edgier than expected with an amber malt bitterness to complement the almost wild hop spiky bitterness. Liquorice, walnut and chocolate at the horizon. - Well-integrated and with a solid backbone, of a hard to place rustic refinement that I suppose befits its lush, well-kept context (£12,90 entry fee). john44 (3101) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2017
Bottle. Red Brown in colour. Strong, dark, very malty bitter. Bittersweet with lots of grassy hops. Dry, malty, roasted finish. Enjoyed this. Decent. (2008)

Bottle from Chatsworth Farm Shop. Copper red colour with white head. Aroma is malty with dark fruits. Nice bitterness. Good beer. ManVsBeer (10448) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 12, 2014
Copper-red in colour, no head. Has a high sweetness in both aroma and taste and fairly sugary in the latter respect. robnights (26) - Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2013
Good British golden, copper look, light head, biscuity aroma. Very nice .........

500 mL bottle of Chatsworth Gardeners Tap into a pint glass. Copper brown with little head. Light, bitter, with a hint of roastiness. Decent hop aroma. Decent enough. Martin243 (1155) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2012
500 ml bottle, Christmas present from Sister in law: (Thanks, Denise). Poured into a shaker. Dark brown, tan head. Nutty biscuity malt aroma. Similar flavours, with the addition of plummy fruit, and a hint of deciduous wood. (Spruce?). Proper brown British beer, and a great example. BlackHaddock (7325) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2012
Brown 500ml bottle, best before Sept 2007, drank Feb 2007.
Poured into a pint sleeve a deep red mahogany body with an off white tight foaming head, looked a picture, a real bitter, not one of these new light coloured bitters that are flooding the UK market at the moment.
Aroma of biscuity malts with a hoppy undertone.
Good malty flavour, strong bitter taste, fine example of how a good British bitter should taste like.
For a UK non-bottled-conditioned beer, this is as good as it gets, heavy malts stay, the 5% is evident, but not overpowering.
Very impressed with this beer, interesting stuff on the label too, all about why its got the name and some history about one of Englands most visited stately homes (where the brewery is), Chatsworth House.

Decent boring brown beer. Good aroma and follow through - round and a touch on the thin side. Reasonable

Bottle [500ml]. Pours a deep amber with a small diminishing frothy off-white head. Nice aroma of caramel malt, toffee, light hops, dark fruit and nuts. Flavour of caramel malt, a good amount of hops for the style, dark fruit and some light spices. Medium bodied. Wow, this is very good, surprisingly so, I really enjoyed it.
