Pleasant surprise! Poured with a small light tan to cream colored head with lots of lace. Color is a very clear medium amber. Aroma is woody, leather, hoppy, a little malt, and earthy. Flavor's similar to aroma and with richer malt plus a good malt sweetness to hop bitterness balance. Great British hop character. Very good beer. Excellent finish. Clean. Definitely a session.

Had in the Victoria Arms pub, Brentwood, Essex, UK recently.

Pours with a nice head, into a regular pint glass.

Smell is nice, more malty than hoppy, how a bitter should be.

Tastes perfect for a bitter, not strong, very well balanced and extremely drinkable.

This is a true british session beer.

Serving type: on-tap

a CAMRA beer of the year (2004) award is promising, but also raises the bar of expectations .... but this brew doesn't need to hide itself... medium bodied but fully flavored and balanced, resinous spices overshadowed by a palate of succulent dried figs and mangos ... great cornish ale ....

Cask at the Station Inn, Whitby... pint served at cellar temperature...

Poured a light coppery orange colour... Slightly off white head poured quite thick and foamy then faded to light layer... light lacing

Aroma - Light caramel malts, nice biscuity notes, fruity (oranges, apples, light figs), buttery, light nuttiness, some light fruity hops, faint rubberiness...

Taste - Nice spicy and herbal hop bitterness, light biscuity and caramel malts, grassy, some grapefruit notes, citrus fruits, light saltiness..

Feel - Quite smooth initially but with a little sharpness underneath. Light bodied. Pretty drinkable - would make a pretty good session beer...

Overall - A pretty good beer... nothing ground breaking but very drinkable... worth a try...

It made 2 fingers of head that vanished quickly. Predominant malty aroma with hints of herbal hops.
Low carbonation with small bubbles.
Flavorful and refreshing taste. Sweet malt with a hint of spices and caramel. Not so bitter. Fast finish with oranges and mild dry. Good smooth beer.

Pours amber with a thin white head. Head thins to a wisp, but leaves lacing.

The smell is of buttered biscuit with tea leaf, slight orange. It has a pleasantly inviting aroma.

The taste is of buttered biscuit with some sweetness and a touch of herbal bitterness and slightly orange-y tartness in the finish.

It is velvety smooth and pleasant.
