Very good ale.. I would say a winter drink. Full of flavour. Abit darker than I like.

Cask @ Yates, Luton
Kolor ciemnomiedziany, przejrzysty. Piana kremowa, gęsta i zawiesista. Doskonale krążkuje na szkle i długo się utrzymuje na powierzchni. W aromacie klasyka stylu: karmel, ciemny chleb, lekkie toffi. W smaku do bólu słodowe z karmelem, biszkoptami i chlebem. Goryczka dość długa, nieprzyjemny posmak w ustach. Umiarkowana tekstura. Słabe, bardzo słabe, jeden z najgorszych Bitterów jakie piłem z pompy :/

4.5% alk. Točena piva probana u Samoboru. Iako nije posebno jaka ima pun okus, fino se osjeća njezina gustoća. Jako dobra piva. Lijep primjerak tipične engleske pive.

Cask Pint at Wibbas Down (JDW), Wimbledon, London in Sept 2009 - Very Dark Brown/Ruby in colour. Malty; roast malts, caramel. Mildly fruity. Sweetish roast malty fruity leading to some bitterness from the roast malts. Drinkable but rather bland. (2009-09)

This is a very tasty bitter. Has a very nice spicey character to it. Not too heavy. Not too hoppy. This is one you could drink all night

Gravity rather than handpump which is never great. A tad on the thin side. The rounded malty, fruity sweetness is there but seems somewhat muted.

On tap at The Golden Grove, Chertsey. 17/07/16. Hadn’t had this in years, but was always a favourite when I like a pint but had not really got in to beer. Little aroma. Ruby brown, as to be expected. May have been the barmaid but, as per the Gold, only a whisp of head. Fruity and sweet. Slight hint of bitterness. Pretty light in body and no carbonation. Not a challenging beer, however this at least makes it easy drink.

on cask @the crafty chandler Aroma of toast and caramel. red brown color. Very pleasant bready taste with a floral citrusy hop tone. Also some dry fruit sweetness A pleasant easy drinking bitter
