IanPoor14 Jul 2009 Deep copper, it’s probably the least bad of the 4 Derby beers I had as part of the rack. Still too syrupy on the malts, but at least some mineral character is there. OK bitter.

Bear & Ragged StaffGood25 Oct 2012 A deep golden beer. In all honesty, having taken one gulp I was ready to leave this as one for the 'beer tickers'. Then other flavours came forward, yes a bit syrupy but it was also earthy, fruity and delicately hoppy. A bit thin on body, otherwise not bad.
