3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask conditioned @ Black Swan, Martyrs Green. Green hop character, slightly rough bitterness. Some yeasty farts. Not in the best condition but this was an unwelcoming foody ’pub’ where most of the clientele seemed to be drinking wine. 2.4
Cask conditioned @ Guide Dog, Soton. Much better condition. Bitter leafy hops and dry malts. Full lasting bitterness. 3.3
Hazy deep amber colour with medium off-white foam. Aromas of sweet pale malts, bread, biscuits as well as some light notes of dried fruits and grains. Palate, medium body with smooth texture leaving a dry finish. Taste, sweet of malts and honey with developing hoppy, herbal and grassy bitterness. Overall, rather nice bitter, not bad at all!

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 (3573) - 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.
