Flavours are dry biscuit and tea with spices. Leafy with herbal notes. Dry with a fruity bitterness to finish. oh6gdx (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 21, 2012

Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Copper amber. Buttery malt aroma and taste. Someone said like Werthers Originals. Mid bitter finish. Tasty and pretty good.

3 Judges. Aroma is honey, apply, over ripe fruits, peachys. Taste is sweet apples, again overly ripe fruit, hints of bittering hops, leave s a bad taste in my mouth. chriso (7536) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 17, 2006
Cask (gravity dispense) at London Drinker Beer Festival (Friday session), March 2006. An unashamedly traditional, copper coloured, English style bitter with dry malt and earthy UK hops in evidence. A bit more body than many "ordinary" bitters but a touch less than many "bests". Nothing that really stands out but a solid bread and butter bitter.. Svesse (8830) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - AUG 25, 2006
(Cask at Market Porter, Borough, London, 1 Aug) Colour is amber with foamy head. Nose is malty and nutty. Taste is fruity, nutty with a nice hoppy bitterness in the finish. Citrussy and slightly earthy hop character. Dry, but rather short finish. Not really complex, but nice enough. DJMonarch (9179) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAR 4, 2006
Cask Stillage at the Memorial Hall, Northwich 21/09/2001 RichardGretton (4796) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 6, 2004
Amber coloured strong in alcohol and bitter on the palate. Hoppy finish.
Dark bitter with a weakly hopped aroma and a light toffee flavour. Overall a standard dry bitter.
