30th Aug 2014, cask pint at the Briar Rose, Birmingham. Pours a clear amber with an off white head that stayed around and gave off some good lacing. Malt lead in the nose with a slight citrus undertone, malts ruled the taste too with a semi-sweet caramel and dark fruit like flavours. Decent.

@Good Yarn, Uxbridge. Copper coloured with a thin head that soo disperses. Not huge aromas, but first sip is immediately Cadbury’s Dairy Milk like. Maltiness essential comes through. Easy drinking.
