An unexpected bonus as the bar in the caravan park we stayed in sold this beer on hand pump so did not have to leave the site to get a decent beer. Not spectacular, a nice session ale. Beesbeer (452) - WALES - AUG 10, 2013
Nice easy to drink refreshing light flavoured bitter. Light bodied. Medium carbonation. Small amount of hops in the taste. tombyars (1702) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - MAR 2, 2012
First tasted this in the Snakecatcher, Brockenhurst in June 1990. Cask, handpump dispense. Crystal clear gold in colour with a thin white head. Dusty lemony hops in the short aroma. Thin mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malts give a digestive biscuit base with zesty lemon peel notes. Tart hop flowers give a resiny bitter aftertaste dry in the palate. Finish is edged bitter with hop resins and oak cask notes adding to the astringency. An ok session bitter but unrewarding. bhensonb (15342) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 13, 2011
Cask at The Ship Inn in Mousehole. Pours copper with a creamy beige head. Floral aroma. Flavor is mildy fruity and bitter. Drinks well. Oakes (17831) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 29, 2011
Golden-amber. The aroma is limited - promising a nondescript brown bitter. Mellow beer, with light caramel, hints of earth, ok balance and a somewhat creamy body.

Cask @ Dolphin pub in Penzance. Slightly sparkled stable head. Glassy copper color with nice lace. the aroma is nothing much and very disappointing. A hint of varnish in the aroma. Tastes better. Has a nice nutty, biscuit and melba toast flavor in the finish and a slight licorice twist at the end too. Interesting longish flavor journey. Redeemed. Rune (12947) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 6, 2010
Half, cask at the Dagda Bar in Edinburgh. Bubbly, beige head, mostly remaining at the top of a slightly cloudy amber coloured body. Resinous hops to the nose added by mid-sweet malts. Blended flavour of bitter fruits and caramel malts. Careful bitter ending, 28.11.2010. JamieFerdinand (163) - Hove, East Sussex, ENGLAND - JUL 14, 2010
Draught at The Shipwrights in Padstow, 6/7/10. Definite session ale. Smoky taste though not overly strong tasting. Some oats in the nose. Svesse (8613) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JUN 15, 2010
(Cask at Cove, Covent Garden, London, 23 May 2010) Dark amber/deep orange colour with frothy, off-white head. Malty, nutty nose with dried fruit and citrus. Malty, slightly nutty taste with notes of toffee, dried fruit, orange and dusty hops in a finish with a moderate bitterness. Thin body, balanced sweetness. A decent session bitter, but not really exciting. bb (9519) - Alamo, California, USA - OCT 16, 2009
Cask. Amber beer with a cream colored head. Malt and grain aroma. Malt, grain, and lightly grassy flavor. Medium bodied. Malt, grain, grass, and woodsiness lingers.
