Cask, handpump at The Crown, Charlton-On-Otmoor, Oxfordshire, Sunday 29th December 2013 Pours copper in colour with a slight head, I thought that I had rated this as I have had it quite a lot over the years and a couple of times over the last weeks. Touch thin and watery but aside from that it is ok, caramel, nutty and with a little bitterness, (I wished they’d have upped the Cascade and Liberty), it is absolutely fine its a safe beer.

Cask at the Hope and Champion, Beaconsfield. Poured a copper colour with a frothy white head. The aroma is woody hop, nutty light fruit. The flavour is moderate bitter with a light smooth fruity woody hop palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. DJMonarch (9179) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2006

Cask conditioned - handpump - Wellington Birmingham. My first visit to this new real ale pub which has sold 256 beers already this year (Day 45). Met Daniel_Brown in there and had a good chinwag. Anyway first beer of the day and a real good one. A lovely dark brown colour with a good soapy off-white head. The aroma was malty with some pleasant berry fruits and maybe a bit of cornflakes? The taste was malty and a bit nutty with some fruitiness coming through later. A very nice beer which Dan and thought could be classed as a brown ale. teorn88 (7682) - Rimini, ITALY - OCT 16, 2015
Backlog rating. Cask at JDW WIQ, London. It pours a clean copper color with minimal tan head. Aroma is roasted malts, toffee, biscuit. Taste has some more sweet malts and bread notes. Light bodied with soft carbonation. Overall, ok

Cask (handpump) at the Three Horseshoes, Marlow Bottom. OK, its a brown ale, but I don’t think I would have placed it in that category. A slightly sharp edge to the finish put me in mind of an old ale. Rich, dark ruby colour. There’s certainly some smoky malt and a touch of caramel in the aroma, but also some other elements that I found it difficult to pin down. Having now seen the ingredients list, with the unusual (for the UK anyway) combination of US hop varieties and dark malts, I can perhaps understand why. On the palate, its sharp, malty and bitter at the same time, with a hint of sweetness. Clean hops and touches of licorice too. Very fresh and tasty.

[Cask at the Back of Beyond (JDW), Reading.] Chestnut with a thin off-white head; earthy aroma; sweet and malty with roast chestnuts and a dry finish. SilkTork (5738) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2002
Served way too cold in a plastic glass during the winter Dickens Festival in Rochester. Has a sweet malt base with a good citric hop attack. The hops die down after a while allowing the malt base to reveal it’s poor quality. Reminded me more of a Vienna than an Ale, but that could be the result of the way it was served. The hops return quite pleasantly in the finish, but nothing special. duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 16, 2007
BF. Tastes quite nutty and caramelly. It is quite malty, and initally sweet, but quickly dries in the end, with a nutty dryness. Crystal malt characters are very obvious in this beer.
