Cask (Alehouse, Reading) - Dark amber in colour. Nuts and biscuity malt in the aroma. Nutty and slightly roasted taste with chestnuts, toffee and a hint of cocoa. A tasty bitter.

13/19/16 bottle at home. Stonking session bitter. Just like an old Berkshire ale should be. If I'm being picky, hops just beat up the malt. But still a great beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

(Cask at Dean Swift, Tower Bridge, London, 23 April 2016) Amber colour with creamy, beige head. Malty nose with caramel, bread and toffee. Malty, slightly fruity taste with notes of caramel, toast, citrus and a balanced, slightly metallic bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a touch of sweetness. Well balanced bitter. Quite nice.

Bottle. Golden pint with large frothy head that dissipates rapidly, medium carbonation. Hoppy, soapy nose. Light medium sweet taste with biscuit, grass, caramel and a nice slug of bitterness in the shortish finish. Fizz and slight wateriness in the palate. Nice as a light lunchtime brew.

BeerViking (4460) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2015
Cask at the Magpie, brown with a lacing head and a clean lightly toffee and floral nose. Crisp, dry-sweet and very drinkable, with light caramel and a lingering bitterness. An excellent example of a session bitter.

A really great session ale. It’s light, easy to drink with medium bitterness and sweetness. Good summer drink.
