Cask pint at the Assembly Rooms, Epsom. Pours clear golden with a white head. Aroma of fruit and malt. Yeast gives this a weird taste. Bittersweet finish. When this brewery opened I was told they got their yeast from Hepworth’s. A big mistake. Heidbummer (650) - SCOTLAND - JUN 30, 2017
Half at Blackfriars. Pours clear amber, lacy head. Soft caramel and malt aroma. Lowuah abv shows in the thinnish mouthfeel, but it’s refreshing, slightly hoppy with a malty note, some citrus. Thirst quencher in the middle of a long walk. Davros IX (359) - Hertford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2017
Cask at the Crutched Friar. A classic English bitter with a deep dark colour in the glass and a malty, yet nicely bitter flavour. It was a bit of a wamr day for a beer like this, but still ok. Good, but didnt set the taste buds dancing. TEJA (3066) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 31, 2017
Small creamy off white head. Almost clear solid golden color. A splendid very fruity hop taste. Not much bitterness. The aroma is small compared to the big taste with some fruit and a tuch of mint! dj (620) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2017
Bottle, 500ml. A cloudy golden colour with almost no head. A somewhat musty hop aroma with fresh orange notes. Flavour has slightly bitter citrus, orange peel, some musty hop coming through. A little watery inn the finish. Not bad for the low ABV.

Fra fat på Clissolds Arms, Fortis Green, sammen med Steven: kobberfarget med fint skum som varer. Noe ufrisk/uren smak, vi mistenker puben for å ha for dårlig turnover og kontroll med kjelleren. Må prøves igjen. ianwelby (1387) - SCOTLAND - OCT 27, 2016
Clear amber bitter, white head. Light, hop smell. Flavour is quite mild. Some light citrus, biscuit, malt. Touch watery. A decent if fairly standard bitter.
