Bottle. Bronze with a small head. Some fruitiness and a trace of hops. Pleasant and easy to drink. Fin (10476) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2007
Cask at Merton Summer Beer Festival 06-07-07. Poured amber with a small white head. This was quite tasty, albeit a touch on the sweet side with caramel being the first flavour to hit me followed by a pleasant but safe maltiness. Glen’s right there wasn’t too much showing from the hops, but regardless of that I rather enjoyed it. MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2007
A Sim rate (cask at Chelmsford BF): Aroma of apple and very slight caramel. Candy apples? Flavour is similar with slight alcoholic bitter aftertaste. SarkyNorthener (4562) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 9, 2015

inn, Lichfield. Amber beer with small head. Aroma of malts. Taste is malts, fruity, some sweetness and woody. Decent.
Cask Conditioned Handpump Market Porter Borough Market. An amber coloured beer with an off-white wisp of head. Served too warm and hence struggling a little. A fairly sweet fruity beer with leafy hops. A reasonable body and not that bad; just needs more chilling.

Cask-conditioned at the Staffordshire Beer festival, Seven Stars, Bristol 6/10/10. Sweet, syrupy aroma with a hint of grassy hop. Flavour had some summer fruits, cereal malts and short, bitter finish. Lacked impact. minutemat (5401) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 16, 2013
500ml bottle from Heart of England Fine Foods, Shrewsbury. Quite a distinctive taste despite being a month out of date with some chewy bits (not due the shop, mind.. rather my unorganised beer shelf!) Some liquorice residue with a slight caramel character. Possibly more so in bottle form, judging by the comments below. imdownthepub (14467) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 8, 2007
Cask conditioned at Merton Beer festival ’07. Amber, no head. I get what they are trying to do with this without getting it, so to speak. A light bitter, malt, biscuit background but when you expect the hops to kick through, they don’t, they are hiding. Still light and malty on the finish, it will appeal to some, just not me. hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2009
Cask gravity at Bedford BF ’09. Bright copper. A hint of green apple in the aroma. The taste is sweet piecrust, a little thin and watery, with slight bitterness. Not very memorable to be frank. cgarvieuk (24230) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 31, 2010
