Cask at Victoria Station Spooneria, 24/12/14. Chestnut brown topped with a moderate beige swirl. Nose is biscuit, perfume, light coffee notes, nutty. Taste comprises biscuit malt, toffee, brown sugar. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, semi drying close with light bitterings and some faint hop tunes. Adequate but not as good as most of Adnams more recent offerings.

Cask conditioned handpump King Billy Northampton 20/12/13. A reddy brown coloured beer with a definite hint of purple and a white head and lace. Decent fruits and malts in the nose. A bit of plum maybe? Similar in the mouth just thinner in profile. A decent enough tasty beer though.
