The same characteristics emerge on the palate but with more intensity,leading to a lingering malty finish. The beer is full bodied and distinctive but with a high drinkability, ensuring its position as one of the South of England’s most requested beers.

Cask at the JDW Briar Rose; clear golden yellow pour with a creamy white head, aroma has light lemon, a hint of biscuit.

The_Osprey (8722) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2016
Cask at The Swan, Hammersmith, last week. As ’Wadworth 6X’, 4.1%. Amber orange, clear, still, small off-white head. Aroma is bready, a bit farty and sulphurous. Body is light, smooth, soft carbonation. Taste is thin, watery bread, some apple and resin. Basic and thin. Just OK. Probably won’t come back to this one.

mike_77 (7026) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - JAN 22, 2016
Pale brown colour with thin creamy head. Aroma has toasted malts. Quite a mild flavour. Fairly strong with malts and a light fruitiness in the finish.

Leighton (22054) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 19, 2015
Cask at the Windsor Castle - Fitzrovia, London. Pours lightly hazy, copper-gold with a foamy white head. Damp leaves in the nose, some grainy bread, berries. Light sweet flavor with simple bread, light toffee, dough, musty earth. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Somewhat bland on the finish, with a bit of sugary brown bread, caramel, earth, old leaves, musty berries. So so.

Cask - copper beer with decent white head. Little aroma but easy on tongue and mouth. Bitter finishing taste - unremarkable easy drinking.

UPDATED: AUG 18, 2016 Copper appearance. Malt aroma with mild caramel. Taste a little mild and watery for me but very drinkable.

red fruit and malt aroma, reddish tinged amber with creamy white lacing, tastes a bit like custard cream, its ok.
