Martyn's rating

4.3
Martyn (15) - Greater London, - DEC 7, 2007
A beautiful bright amber appearance with a lovely fruity nose. An initial red berry fruit flavour is followed by a butterscotch middle and a superb long caramel malt finish balanced out with a nice hop background. A great traditiional british ale with a great appearance and branding. Lets get some younger people drinking cask ales!!

Delirium (668) - Falmouth, Cornwall, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2017
Bottle. Pours amber with a lasting off-white head. Aroma is grass, citrus, caramel. Flavor is sweet caramel malt with a bitter, hoppy finish, and a bit of straw. Somewhat acidic. Reminds me an American-style amber ale more than anything, probably because of the Cascade hops. Pretty decent.

Amber in colour. Nice bitterness to it. With a slight malty sweetness in the aftertaste.

Nice beer, initially a little sharp, but that's because I had chilled it. It's probably best served a little under room temperature. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cask at The Swan, Broadway. Pours clear dark amber with moderate white head that dissipates. No carbonation. Aroma is subtle but pleasant, citrus and pineapple. Taste is well balanced between malt and hop. Even bitterness across palate but not over the top. Some malt sweetness balances the hops. Slightly thin in body but not really watery as some low abv ales can be. Overall a reasonable session English Amber ale.
