    Bottle brought back from England by a friend. Pours with an amber body topped by a thin head with little lacing. It’s slightly sweet and malty wtih a slight grassy hop note and a subtle bitterness. Medium bodied and smooth yet highly carbonated.

    This is a copper coloured beer with a small head (I've heard the casked version has a larger head). The aroma is malty with hints of sugar and hops. The flavour is malty with some lingering sweetness. I was not impressed

    I had this beer in a pub called The Green Man in London. It was a very drinkable bitter. It poured a copper body with a small head. It finished very smooth. Not a bad bitter

    The body was amber coloured, and the head a frothy white with good lacing. Aroma of some fruity malts, slightly sweet. Mouthfeel was creamy and quite full for a light to medium bodied ale. Flavour profile suggests lots of malts and some caramel, small hints of sweet fruits and then finishes with a rounding bitter from some hops. A good pint.

    Can: Poured a dark amber color ale with small foamy head with minimal retention and some fine lacing. Aroma of dry English malt is present but lacking in floral or fruity aspects. Taste of dry malt is interesting but the missing floral/fruity layer makes it a bit boring and the absence of any notable hops presence also make this as an average offering.

    Pours a clean amber-copper colour with a decent creamy off-white head that has good retention. Carbonation is very light, with tiny little bubbles, from time to time. Big grainy and bread nose with some yeast. Watery mouthfeel with a bit of stickiness. The taste is nice, with some sweetness, some fruitiness and some light hoppiness. Pretty good bitter.

    Can produced a clear dark amber ale with a tight 2 finger cap which lasted well and laced the glass....soft carbonation. Nose is fruity and malt pronounced with a light sweet tone. Medium body, soapy mouth feel, light mild character. Light malts in the front midway hwrbal-woody balance from the fuggles and then the finish is clean and earthy. Nice pub ale..has a decent character for a light mild ale.

    A really decent bitter. Very strong with alot of malt in the nose and a decent amount of bitterness that really hits on the aftertaste. Good if you like a strong bitter.

    Nice amber colored bitter with almost no head. Strong fruity aroma and a nice rounded mouthfeel. Flavor starts out fruity and moves towards the bitter end of the scale late. Aftertaste seemed to be on a delay - at first you search around for it then it comes out of hiding. Great pint in the pub.

    Rerate, cask at The Shipwrights, North Hylton, Sunderland. A nice little beer, this one. Aroma a bit like Marston’s Pedigree, but less pronounced. Smooth and mellow, fruit and nuts in the flavour. No true "masterpiece", but certainly a drinkable pint.
