13 Decent brown bitter.
The Felix Holt (JDW), Nuneaton (Slater’s Premium Bitter’). Copper with a thick off-white collar draping the glass. Muted orange and blackcurrant aroma emerging from the foam; taste orange and red apple fruitiness receding into a lingering cashew aftertaste. Hops, yeast, malt. Good rounded bitter that’s not afraid to taste of something. Finn (8305) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 1, 2010
Gravity på Bree Louise, Euston 28 Sep 10. Mørk brun. Veldig lite skum. Aroma av karamell. Smaken avrundet med litt malt og litt frukt. OK.

Half, gravicask, shared with Finn at The Bree Louise. Bright copper coloured body with ruby highlights. Aroma of dark fruits and sweet malts. Chocolate, fruits and caramel in a jam-like taste profile. Fine bitter round off (Euston, London 28.09.2010). downender (9008) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2010
Cask-conditioned at the Staffordshire Beer festival, Seven Stars, Bristol 6/10/10. Amber coloured with a slight, off-white head. Malty aroma with some sweetness and lick of grassy hop. Flavour of cereal malts with a short, bitter finish. Forgettable. madmitch76 (26413) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JUL 24, 2010
23rd July 2010. On tap at the Old Dispensary - Aldgate E1. Slightly hazy amber beer. Decent white head. Nicely balanced even malt and juicy orange hop. Misses a few marks for an appley streak. In good nick but possibly a few more days in the cellar would have been good. Perfectly drinkable nontheless. BeerViking (5132) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2010
UPDATED: MAY 29, 2012 Pours a rich brown, slightly oaky on the nose but a big burst of malt, with underlying sweetness and rich woody hops on the palate. Full bodied with lingering bitter and nutty finish. Re-rated in bottle, malty nose with hint of pepper & hay hops, crisp & malty, but a very faint metallic tang too. maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2009
