Fra håndpumpe på The Seven Stars, Carey Str., London, mars-17: lett uklar kobber med flott skum. Lavt karbonert i klassisk engelsk stil, fremhever den lett fruktige aromaen og smaken som også har karamell og jordtoner. Mild bitterhet i den lange ettersmaken. jmgreenuk (9313) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - DEC 29, 2016
Bottle from the Hotel Continental, Whitstable. Poured a slightly hazy medium brown with a frothy white head. The aroma is sweet malt, toffee caramel, light hop. The flavour is moderate sweet, light bitter with a smooth sweet woody, light floral hop bitter palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

September 17, 2014 - at The Tipperary; handpull. Very slightly hazy reddish copper with a decent if diminishing off-white frothy head. Quite fruity and floral, but there’s a tartness I don’t think should be there - has a lot of iron/mineral character, which I kind of like - at least the background sweetness is well hidden; same with the taste - a real iron/blood tang to it - virtually no alcohol. Thick mouthfeel, tingly, with a really acidic aftertaste - not sure about the shape of this one .... on now reading other reviews, I don’t think it was in good shape. Shame - probably should score .3 or so higher. Scopey (14511) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 22, 2015
Cask at the Claret Freehouse. It pours clear deep amber with a decent off-white head. The nose is rich maltiness, brown bread, wood, toasty cereal, toffee and some over-ripe stone fruits. The taste is bitter-sweet, firm bitterness, caramel, wood, nuttiness, brown bread, rich tea biscuit, varnish and leather with a dry, woody finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Great condition. A respectable ESB by all accounts. The_Osprey (7881) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2014
Cask at the Queens Head Kings Cross. Mahogany brown, hazy, still, small ring of white head. Aroma is sharp, malty, redcurrent. Body is medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is tangy strawberry jam(maybe one that’s been in the cupboard a year or so), yeasty wet bread, pretzel, card, drying, soft bitterness. It’s OK, just not my sort of thing.

cask at Market Porter in London, review from many years ago - Pours a light amber color with a thin, frothy, long lasting head. It has a mild, malty aroma and tastes of caramel malt with mild bitterness. It’s a straightforward, easy drinking beer. evergreen0199 (3318) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 29, 2011
Cask at St Albans beer festival 2011. An amber coloured pour with a small fluffy white head on top. Hopy, fruity aroma. Tastes hoppy, malty, caramel, bitter. Not bad. gnoff (10226) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - MAY 17, 2011

Slight bit hazy copper color, white head. Fruity, caramel taste. Medium mouthfeel, medium high bitterness. Faint malty scent. A bit sour aftertaste.
Cask handpull, Chambers, Folkestone. Orange jelly, fresh hopcone and dunked biscuit aroma. Full and silky with notes of Rich Tea and orange. Dollop of Kiora cordial. Big swiggable balance. Rather lovely DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2009
Cask in the Market Porter. Alround rating: WSweet pale malt, fruity sweet esters off the yeast, grassy hop finish but not overly balanced.
