Cask at the Crown Rivers, LHR T5, 23/11/13.
Clear copper brown with a moderate light beige covering that retains well.
Nose is biscuit malt, toffee, brown sugar, nutty tones, dark fruit.
Taste comprises caramelised sugars, bread dough, cake mix, berry fruits, toffee fudge.
Medium bodied, soft carbonation, subtle bitter notes and a berry fruit tang in the finish.
A most decent bitter, could session on this one, puts the twiggy brown nonsense clan to shame! SarkyNorthener (4569) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2013

imperial, walsall. Dark reddish brown beer with small frothy head. Aroma of fruity malts. Taste is fruity malts, pepper and dry leaves. Ok beer.
Cask at Figure of Eight, Birmingham. A Bitter, with a bit more poke. Good cereal sweetness, locked inside this smooth, tawny, fircone booze. Crackled leaves indeed. Underfoot. prawlie (1583) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2013
Pint at Wetherspoons in Reading. Hazy amber, good bubbly head. Dry, bitter, fruity. Zesty red fruit aroma. Reasonable but too bitter to get the most of the fruity notes. harrisoni (18436) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2013

, Helsinki. Amber/copper colour with a small off white head. Aroma is fruity, wooden, mild nuttyness and some vanilla. Flavour is wood, some fruityness as well as mild nuttyness. A bit grassy and mild spices towards the finish.
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Amber with white head. Aroma of raked leaves on a warm autumn evening, I should know because that’s what I did before nipping out. Woodland fruity with bittering malt notes and a slightly dry, leafy hoppiness. Usually a dodgy realtionship when drinking Three Castles at a Spoons, but not on this occasion.

Cask, gravity at The Bell Beer Festival, Adderbury, Nr Banbury, Oxon, 04.09.10 Pours conker brown. This is a very nice beer, good malty nose, some woodland and wet sticks also present in the aroma. Soft in the mouth, maltiness coming through again, the finish is dry there is a little citrus showing. Its an easy drinking bitter, uncomplicated, bit of a one trick pony but I rather enjoyed it.

bottle at home ... thin white lacing ... fruity toffee malt ... bitter hop ... fruit ... ok but not anything special FatPhil (15967) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 24, 2009
Cask (Pullman, Helsinki)
Slighty hazy rich orange. Tiny loose head. Very vague aroma, some fruity hops, some elastoplast. Pleasant refreshing mouthfeel. Carbonation low. Plenty of retronasal esters. Tingle in the mouth not so much from CO2, but from bitterness. Slightly earthy hops. Finish is resiny dry almost nettly bitter hops. Competent old-style bitter, but nothing special. Finish lasted a long time.
