Cask; Regular. Also available bottled.
A traditional amber coloured session beer with a difference. The strong flavour belies the relatively low alcohol content. A slightly spicy aroma comes from Goldings and Fuggles hops, with the bitterness from English Target.

Cask-conditioned at the Inn on the Green, Bristol 26/05/10. Amber with a slight, off-white head. Sweet caramel and orange aroma. Flavour was similar with sweet malts and fruit, and a short, bitter finish. Ok.

harrisoni (17278) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2009
Cask gravity at 1st K&ES Railway BF 2009. Hazy copper colour, lasting thin beige head. A little syrupy and toffeeish. Maybe a little tight and not quite ready yet. It’s alright. It’s a slightly syrupy malty bitter. Some sparkle on the finish.
