2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask at the Bankers Draft (JDW), Bedford. Copper colour with a light drizzle of off-whitish head. The carbonation is strong with this one. Floral and toffee aroma, mild but pleasant enough. Sweet malty taste with a hit of caramel, but there’s some artificial-tasting astringency at the end of the sip. Toffee apple in the aftertaste. Nice full palate for a beer of this strength. Ok.

Sampled on draught at the JD Wetherspoon's Mossy Well pub in Muswell Hill. A deep, clear copper colour with a quickly-fading white head. Malty aroma, and a very fruity taste of apples and plums. Hints of butterscotch and orange marmalade. Some hoppy bitterness, but very mild in flavour. Medium mouthfeel. A fruity and well-flavoured bitter.

A bit disappointing if I'm honest. Standard aroma but rather bitter tasting and quite weird. Won't be having another one

Herbs and banana glavours are rather dilute but there’s enough there to compliment the rich body to make this an interesting beer. The bitterness of the three hop types makes for a somrwhat unusual but interesting edge.
