Tasting Summary

These comments are the opinion of the individual reviewer and represent what they thought of the beer on a particular day in a particular pub. If a review is less favourable, it may be because the beer suffered somewhere in the supply chain between them and the brewery.

Jack WilliamUndrinkable07 Sep 2022 I was looking forward to this rarity on hand pump. But the face pulled by the barmaid as she sniffed it and the soupy appearance of the pint led us both to declare it unfit for drinking.
AndrewExcellent08 Jun 2009 I've not had this since I was about 20 (so a while ago) when I wrote it off. However, this was excellent. Bark, raspberry and water melon. Very drinkable.

ChrisENot Tried26 Aug 2010
IanGood26 Aug 2010 It's a decent premium bitter, with decent darkish fruits. It's a very decent beer. Just a bit thin on the finish, could do some more hops, but then I think 90% of UK beers could do with more hops. Some peppery Bramling Cross on the finish here would be perfect.
IanGood16 Mar 2008 Must have been good, I had 2 pints of it. Good condition. As always, all the pump clips turned to face the customer even when some weren't on.
