Cask at White Hart, Chobham. Light malty aroma. Medium amber. Thin blotchy white head. Light bitter. This then gives way to a caramel sweetness with malty tones. Although I found the bitterness grew in prominence as I drank more. Light-medium bodied. On the thin side. Soft carbonation. Long finish. Did not remember what I’d thought of it previously but a better than average non-twiggy pint. booldawg (70) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2017
This beer is up there in my top 5. One I always go for if I see it on tap in a pub or festival. Everything a traditional English ale should beer, well balanced, refreshing, full of character. Excellent stuff! john44 (3048) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2017

Bottle from Inn at Home, Guildford. Pours bright golden amber with a small off white head. Aroma of light biscuit, caramel, light bitter fruit, grapefruit, lemongrass, and hop. Medium sweetness, light bitterness. Medium body, sticky texture, average carbonation. Finish is sticky and sweet, with light lingering bitterness. A subtle brew, which grew on me.

Cask 1/3 pint, gravity dispense, at the 16th Twickenham Beer & Cider Festival, Golden colour, white head. Moderate malty aroma, some toffee, a little fruit. The flavour is nice enough, but not very special - probably got the Gold award in the CBoB 2016 for not being offensive in any way.

Cask at the Tilly Shilling (JDW), Farnborough. Pale amber with a loose white head; citrus aroma; lemon citrus taste; and a dry, lightly bitter finish. A simple and straightforward golden ale. Martinus (4599) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - OCT 23, 2015

Cask (Eagle Ale House, Clapham) (6:3+:6:3+:13-=3.1+)Aniela (4216) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 11, 2015
Pale orange, brief head. Sweet malty aroma. Dry bitter palate. Simple malts. Pretty boring, but nothing wrong at all. A classic English malty bitter. Maybe a bit twiggy. Was a little flat in the mouth.
