UPDATED: OCT 22, 2016 Latest rating: at the Red Lion, Swaffham Prior. Chestnut brown. Sour vinegar sulphurous aroma. Taste is actually sweet and quaffable, with a lovely hoppy aftertaste. A reasonable ale, although Iím not overly keen.

martpez (130) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 29, 2016
Not a fan has a flat sour taste. Once you get used to it its just watery and bland. Shockingly bad really. Might have been a bad pint. But I dont particular care to try a better conditioned version.

Scopey (12985) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 11, 2016
Cask as Razor Back at the Porter & Sorter, Croydon. It pours clear rich amber with a thick white head. The aroma is brown bread, cereal, nut, earth and cereal. The taste is bitter - sweet, wood, cereal, toasted grain, brown bread, nut and light spice with a dry finish. Medium body and fine, foamy carbonation. Great condition. Pretty alright actually.

Hippoman (646) - Durham, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2015
Cask at The Woodman, Durham, £3.30/pint. Deep brown coloured beer with a thick, off-white head. Both the nose and taste are bittersweet and characterised by cereal grains. Sweetness comes through harder on the late palate, with fruity melon notes detectable. Drinkable but pretty dull bitter.
