UPDATED: JUL 10, 2014 Didn’t like this. Golden yellow colour a la Boddingtons. Watery mouthfeel, unpleasant tartness in the taste.

Cask handpump at The Bell Inn, Purton, nr Cricklade, Wiltshire. Friday 4th July 2014 Pours mid gold hazy, touch of burton snatch on nose. It’s as I expected, served suprisingly quite cold, but not suffering for it. Fruity with a light bitterness throughout its tangy, fine. A6 A4 T7 P3 Ov13 3.3

Bottle. My first for a long time from this brewery. Golden and clear. Slightly sweet with a small head. Pleasant but nothing really distinctive about it. Pretty average.

Cask at Ye Olde Red Lion, Chieveley. Golden amber with a loose white head; crisp floral aroma; biscuity malt taste; with some decent hops to finish. Very summery and refreshing, even on a wet day in December.

Theydon_Bois (7944) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - OCT 14, 2012
Cask at the Prince of Wales, Farnborough BF (at the bar - may have been part of the BF range?) - 12/10/12. Clear pale golden with a good sized frothy white head. Nose comprised malt, barley, orchard fruits and a little peppery. Tastes of dry orchard fruits, light hops, pale malt, toffee a little cardboard and spice. Medium bodied with little in the way of carbonation lending towards a dry finish.
