Have had two of these. One at Thomas Sheraton Stockton which was superb almost Marble Dobber standard. One at Boston Wetherspoons which was less so but still good, hence an average of the two ratings above.

UPDATED: OCT 10, 2012 Cask at the Greyhound (JDW), Maidenhead. Golden amber with a thin white head; fruity aroma; rich tropical fruit flavour with some chewy malts; then a long, building, bitterness leaving a sweet digestive biscuit finish. Deceptively easy to drink.(7/4/7/4/15=3.7, 10/21/2011)
