imdownthepub (11375) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2003
Bottled, Pasteurised. Deepish amber beer with loose head. Despite pasteurisation there are traces of tangy fruit and light hops. A good bitter finish. I would prefer to mark the cask conditioned which is bolder and fuller, but hey, they also serve it in a bottle so who am I to choose?
