Cask Conditioned at Harbury Beer Festival ’05. Deep gold with big bubbly head. Great condition for a festival beer and surprisingly rich for a session bitter. Dry and fruity, a beer that would last through a Friday night drinkathon. Long bitter finish with well outlined hoppiness. My beer of this festival despite its ABV.

Cloudy mid gold with a thin white head. Lovely floral, bitter and aromatic hoppy aroma with faint notes of lemon and berries. The flavour is excellent. Full of glorious hoppage. Lovely background bready malt which gives it an excellent balance and the fruit is glorious. A superb thirst quenching beer with a really good dry and bitter finish. Very good prickly mouthfeel with just the right amount of carb. Jolly good stuff.
Cask (gravity dispense), St Albans Beer Festival 2005. Copper coloured with a scant white head. I’d hardly call it a hop-head beer, but there is plenty of dusty, tangy British-style hop on show. Some light biscuity malt and subtle fruit around as well. Not a beer that shouts out at you, but a nicely balanced, quite classy little number.

On cask at Coach and Horses, Dronfield. Pours ruby brown with an off white head. Very smooth, well hopped session bitter. Some dark fruits. A very good example of a session bitter. maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2005
Cask conditioned - gravity dispense - Harbury BF. A mid brown coloured beer with nice white lacing. The aroma is nice fruity malts and a little smokiness in the background. The taste is crunchy and dry. Real toasty flavours and throat grabbing bitterness. Real good body. I can see why Glen liked this so much, although my marks are not quite as high. cgarvieuk (24536) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 2, 2010

Gravity poured half-pint on 26th Aug 2015 at the Peterborough Beer Festival. Deep old golden colour, wispy topping. Fruity nose and a hop laden taste gave this an IPA feel to me, enjoyed it whatever the style (festival notes called it a session-bitter). cellar (508) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUL 3, 2008
Thx for a grand tasting, Chris_o :) Cloudy amber, big head, flowery notes, fruit, grapefruit, hops, little bitter and winnig towards the end, pretty lifeless.
