COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
A dark ale with a sophisticated blend of malts combined with a distinctive hop character. A balance of caramel and chocolate flavours from the malt and a great aroma of pine and citrus from whole hop flowers makes this a memorable beer. Itís a session beer to savour.

Theydon_Bois (8118) - The íSham, Surrey, ENGLAND - SEP 12, 2012
Gravity dispense at the 1st Runnymede Beer Festival - 08/09/12. Dark chestnut brown resembling still cola in appearance. A thin off-white head soon thins to nothing. Toffee, caramel, licquorice and a little roast malts on the nose. Tastes of roasted malts, chocolate and nuts. Medium bodied with very little carbonation lending to a bitter dry finish.

jmgreenuk (4230) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - AUG 25, 2012
Cask at the Row Barge, Guildford. Poured a dark mahogany with a minimal frothy head, but lots of lace. A hint of maltiness in the aroma leading to a citrus peppery bitterness in the flavour. Quite an unusual beer and well worth tasting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Reasonable if unremarkable dark ale. Easy drinking, but not much more to add.

Cask at Ascot Festival 2011. Poured a dark brown with a thin white head. Plenty of citrus in the aroma, which leads to a caramel and malty taste.

Cask (White Horse, RBESG2011 Friday)
Rich roasty aroma. Rich roasty body. Delicate hopping brightens it up a bit. Alas I got a hint of kidney in this, which ainít good. However, the band was great, and I got to show off proper headbanging to a bunch of gormless yuppies for whom the 70s was they read about in history books. Which gave me a great buzz, and made me very thirsty, so I loved a glug of this when I had the change. At least I can put the nearly falling over down to being an insane rattlehead rather than being drunk.
