Chelmsford Beer Festival. Cask. Light haze on this amber beer, small white head. Palate is smooth but has just modest carbonation. Smooth semi sweet malts, little caramel. Mild orchard fruits, slightly ripe. Smooth finish. Tasty enough but has condition issues.
On cask at the brewery, pours a clear amber and a loose tan head.
The smell is toasted malt, caramel, herbal notes.
The beer tastes herbal, toasted malt, caramel while ending dry and slightly bitter.
The body is light with mild carbonation.

Lovely sweet bready, slightly nutty aroma. Beautiful soft palate. More breadiness in the taste. Lovely twiggy bitterness. Classic bitter, makes me want to drink more. Great at 3.7%.
On tap at Spotted Dog in Flamstead, from cask. Dark amber colour, thin, off white head. Smooth, yes fruity taste, very very drinkable. Fantastic beer. Erzengel (8896) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - AUG 4, 2014
Smooth and malty-sweetish beginning. Highly drinkable. Nutty malt aroma, hints of fruit. Nicely smooth. The aftertaste is malty, fresh, hazelnuts with fruity hints. Not much bitterness. Great!!

Cask at the farmers boy St Albans. Pale copper colour with thin white head. Aroma is caramel biscuit malt, slight stale and a hint of apple. Flavour is grainy tanin, some caramel. Thin watery palate and some chalk. Not great. jjsint (3208) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 12, 2014 Cask @ Lamb, Stoke Goldington. Pours a light brown. Not a lot of head. Malty, vinous smell. Dough, slight astringency, hint of something herby. Soft fruit and toffee. Taste is sweet with a tempering savoury/spicy flavour that lifts it a bit above the ’twiggy/ordinary brown bitter’. Bitterness in the palette. Pretty good, especially for the low ABV.

Cask in The Kings Arms, Berkhamsted. Colour is light brown bitter. Fruity, Malty light bitter, touch of suphur, possibly on the turn. Caramel and light bitterness.
Light citrus and melon aroma, leaving a light sweet and bitter flavour. Mid body, with a mid golden colour. Ok.

3rd Half at a beerfest in The George Inn, Eccleshall (April 2012). Hand pulled. Amber body with an off-white crown on top. Malts in the nose and taste, good flavours for the alcohol level: this is a fine session beer and I could quiet happily stayed on it all night, but there were other goodies to try!
