500ml bottle, poured into a straight Firkin Off Licence pint glass. Rather fitting as this long defunct outlet was where I first came across RCH brews many moons ago. Darkish brown with a light creamy head, marshmallow aroma with a good, malt & hop taste. Sweetish with some fruit & caramel, the epitome of a good English bitter.
Cask. Amber colour. Malty (sweet malts and toffee). Fruity (dark fruits). Hops (slight hop bitterness). Good malt/fruit balance. Sweet malty fruity throughout. OK. Easy drinking. (2008)

Bottle from Beers of Europe. Piwo ma fajna kremowa na jeden palec grubosc pianki, kolor miedziano-herbaciany, zapach suszonego siana i trawy. W smaku trawiaste, goryczkowe konkretnie, nieco kremowosci brytyjskiego pudinga, gorycz wszechobecna zdominowala nawet te srednia slodowosc. Nieco oleiste i jakby tluste piwo. Bitter mocno nachmielowy. I like that. ManVsBeer (10795) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2016

Cask at the Counting House. Clear, dark copper with a thick creamy white head. Not much on the nose, a little toffee perhaps. Flavour is sweet, toffee and fruit. Reminds me of fruity toffee sweet from my childhood. Towey1989 (3038) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2016

Taste of toffee, fruit, some red berries, slight bready malts, a little coffee, maybe smoke and spicy hops. Medium bodied and soft carbonation. A soft, dryish, malty, spicy hop bitterness in the finish. A fruity beer with a lot of malty flavour and a spicy hop bitterness. Not to bad.
