Brown. That’s it. No hop aroma, no distinctive malt flavour, nothing that makes any impact at all on the taste buds. Just brown. kwik-lime (1926) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2015
Cask at The Antelope in Surbiton. Generic, malt-dominated British bitter - drinkable enough but uninspiring. dynamiteninja (1864) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2011

Woolpack Chelmsford. Clear brown beer. Suddy off white head. Sweet dry malt with a touch of fruit. Sweet average beer!
Cask (handpump) at the Woolpack, Chelmsford on 3 February 2011. Warning! You are now entering a hop-free zone. Copper colour with a slight reddish tinge. It’s all creamy caramel on the nose. Full of sweet, sticky malt in the flavour. No appreciable hop presence to provide respite. Sweet and watery on the palate - not a good combination. Rubbish. I see that other reviews have not been too critical so this might not have been in peak condition. Can’t say I’ll be rushing back to form a second opinion though. I’m not sure this is actually a recreation of an old Tolly Cobbold beer, but more an attempt to exploit the brewery name.

6 Sweet bready malty beer.
4 Deep orange, small head.
6 Simple rich malty taste, one might say "brown". Some slightly supfury hops in there too, I guess that’s Green King reinventing the Tolly Cobbold taste.
3 Soft palate, carbonation low. Full, but brief malty finish.
12 Simple, but a decent traditional dark bitter.
Cask; Gypsy Queen; Beighton, Sheffield -- Nice light, cream cloloured head with a beautiful deep amber appearance. An deep but not particularly inspring aroma. The first mouthful was very promising with a warming toffee flavour but it failed to excite for long as there seemed to be little else going on. It was not as heavy as you have thought from its appearance and taste, making for an easy drink all the way down. It was a decent pint and I would drink again depending on what else was on offer. tdtm82 (1701) - Essex, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2011
Cask, The Woolpack, Chelmsford
Creamy-white lacing, redish-brown colour, aroma is chestnuts, cream, tofffee. Taste is floral hops, toffee, caramel, soy-source, astringent yeast, heavy malts, really poorly balanced, awful top end bitterness, bland boring, bah. JanEric (1233) - Meppel, NETHERLANDS - JUL 15, 2010
Cask at The Grapes, Oxford. Amber coloured, normal head. Aroma is hops and some souriness. Reasonable bitter taste with sourish notes. Reasonable finish. Good thirstquencher, also by the sorishness. maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUN 14, 2010
Cask conditioned handpump Wig & Pen Northampton. An amber coloured beer with a white head and lacing. A malty bitter with an earthy taste but hardly any aroma. Very ordinary as expected.
