Looks fairly standard when poured in the glass - amber-brown in color with really no head but consistent with this style. Smells of apples, bread and other spices - maybe some nutmeg. Taste is wonderful with the same notes hit from the aroma. After many trips to London this is the best delivery of this type of beer west of the Atlantic. What's better is the low ABV - definite session beer.

A: Slightly hazy orange color with dense creamy white head that had great retention and left layers of foam after each sip.

S: Caramel and toffee, then the floral and fruity nots come out a bit.

T: Caramel, floral hints, fruits, slight piney/earthiness. This is one ofthe most flavorful bitters that I have had.

M: Creamy and mouth coating then finishing dry and leaving you wanting more.

D: I have at least one every time it is on at the brewery. One of my favorite beers. Something that could be drunk all night long.

I really enjoyed my experience with this beer. A session beer that can be enjoyed pint after pint after pint. I once thought that cask beer's appearance was unappealing, but not any more. I think cask ales are a beautiful thing to behold. A very nice fruity yeast flavor with just enough hops to barely overpower the malt in this beer. I'm not sure how this would be in a bottle or from a keg, but from the cask, it was excellent.

Smooth and creamy pour from the hand pump. Lighty amber in color, a bit hazy. On the nose, fruits (peaches) and soft honey malt. Flavor is over the top awesome. Smooth, starting slightly sweet with flavors of light tea, honey, soft white bread and a touch of yeast far in the background. Warm and gentle tingling bitterness follows, very clean, noticable but not overpowering. Finishes super creamy and fairly rich. Mouthfeel on cask is just killer, so rich, creamy and smooth. Ultimate drinkability.

Overall - One of my favorites from by far, my favorite brewery. Incredibly delicious stuff from the hand pump..

Served a medium copper colored beer with creamy white head. Smell is superb with a nice mixture of malt and hops. Taste is even better than the smell with the malt and hops forming an excellent balance. Finished with a moderate dryness that is supremely refreshing. The perfect session beer with modest alcohol content, great taste and perfect drinkability. Definitely a winner.

From the cask this beer looks damn appetizing. Had it at Victory and absolutely LOVED the fact that they use imperial pint glasses for their ales- not to mention proper glassware for everything, but back to the point...
This bitter looks like it belongs in merry old England. Deep golden and copper color topped off with a creamy white head that seduces your mouth, tongue and perhaps your very soul. It smells of an excellent malt character with the proper bittering hop aroma. Every single quality ingredient comes to fruition once the pint glass inches towards your lips and that first sip trickles in. Indicative of the taste is the mouthfeel, its velvety smoothness entices every orifice of your mouth until the very last drop. This is a session beer at its finest, although it is hard to just have one, you must realize that while at Victory the rest of the beer lures me in like birds to a bird feeder (i'm sure that i'm not alone).

All in all this beer is one of my favorites on cask. Recommend it to all.
