Cask at the sir edward wyle. Aroma is minimal, bitter peppery hops an slightly richer malts. Taste is similar, a standard bitter pritty unexciting if drinkable enough.

Dark brown colored with little yellow head. Licorice and mild spices in fruity aroma, rich one. Thin to medium bodied. Dry flavor with lemon and some licorice too, aftertaste has thin spices still. Weird but good one. hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2008
Cask at ’Spoons, Milton Keynes. Amber with a large white head, making it difficult to discern aroma, probably it’s malty. Taste was sweet and malty with some pleasant breadiness but also a curious, slightly stale flavour of mothballs which I occasionally note at this particular JDW, and which I have always suspected to be a cleaning issue. Some bitterness. oh6gdx (26488) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAY 31, 2008

(fastest caskchange & linewashing I’ve seen). Amber colour, mediumsized beige creamy head. Aroma is wood, mild sweet matls and a bit sourness. Flavour is wooden, quite nutty and dry erathyness. Aftertaste has some mild fruityness too. Really pleasant bitter.
Cask-conditioned at the Knights Templar (JDW), London WC2 16/5/08. Reddish-amber colour with a decent white head. Aroma of caramel and red fruit with some earthy hops. Flavour was sweetish, with plenty of doughy malt, fruit and a long, bitter finish. Enjoyable.

Cask conditioned at The Turf Tavern, Oxford. Copper coloured with white head. I’m always a bit wary with Ramsbury beers now, I haven’t rated them too highly in the past, but this one is not bad, its a fully flavoured darker roasted bitter, fruity and grainy. Some balancing hops rather than stand out flavours. Overall, reasonable. Fin (10542) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 14, 2007
Bottle, picked up at Millets Farm shop near Abingdon, Oxon, a week or so ago. Pours a ruby colour, quite tasty some nice fruitiness and malt with maybe just a touch of a hoppy note in the aroma, much better than the Gold I had last week.

Bottle. Amber coloured with a slim off-white head. Aroma has malts, caramel and a slight metallic edge. Fruity and malty with a decent dry and bitter finish. Light to medium bodied, moderate carbonation. Not bad. johndoughty (5454) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 12, 2006
Bottled. Ruby coloured with no carbonation and left no lacing. Complex bitter taste leading to dry finish.Could have turned out to be a nice bitter but it didn’t. Finn (7547) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 23, 2006
