Draught at the Rose and Crown, Wimbledon, London. Light colour, thin mouthfeel. Great lacing, but no head. Aroma of newly cut grass. Malty taste, with only a few hops in the finish. Some orange, lemon and ginger. Quite tasty and certainly drinkable, whilst being undemanding.

Davros IX (485) - Hertford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 24, 2017
Pint at The Old Ship in Chiswick. A good looking, light coloured bitter. The flavour was that of a basic bitter, biscuity malts and some bittering hops. It was well kept and pleasurable to drink, but basic and not one to get me dancing on the tables.

Drunk on draught at the anchor and hope in Southwark. Enjoyable, drinkable ale.

A wonderfully reliable, clean, fresh, dry hoppy bitter. Difficult to beat. Invariably of a high standard at the Malt Shovel in Dartford, Kent.

March 25, 2017 - on cask at Tin Belly. Clear golden pour with nice amount of head that lasted and left some lacing. Aroma was weak fruit and spice. Taste was very watery with light sweetness and mild bitter finish.
