3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber brown bodied, clear and with small head. Fairly fruity, light browned malts, biscuit and foresty hops. Medium bitter, yet with low carbonation so it feels dry and not very spectacular. Not much complexity but good drinkability. A country pub for the locals, done well, and with a chef that justifies going here as tourist as well. (Half pint at The Bell)

Cask at William Robert Loosley (JDW),’High Wycombe. Amber with a large white head. Creamy mouthfeel nice at first but gets a little cloying. Sweet caranel dominates with a bit of brazil nut and a little lemon. Light earthy bitterness to finish. Reasonable bitter, bit too sweet and creamy by the end.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
After an autumn stroll in woodland - on draught in Wokingham, not too far from the brewery. The beer was clear and in good condition. It was a darkish amber with relatively slight nose. On the palate I didn’t find it at all citrus but pleasant with hints of caramel. Not very bitter. I think it would have been nice drunk outside in summertime.

Cask at the Crispin, possibly the best pub in Wokingham! Poured a lovely clear golden brown with a thin white head and lots of lace. Little in the way of an aroma, but a very smooth malty bitterness in the taste with citrus notes. A very drinkable and refreshing beer indeed. Nice when it's a little on the cool side too.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dispensed from cask to an English half pint jug at the Sussex Arms, Twickenham Green, Jan ’12.
Pours a clear copper-amber colour with a small white head.
Not a beer that attacks the nose particularly, a little malt and hop, didn’t get any other discernable aromas.
Much tastier on the palate however and a good deal of flavours for a 3.7% session bitter. Malt, light caramel notes, citrus fruits.
Light in body it provides a pleasent enough mouthfeel and a slightly zingy bitter-dry aftertaste.
In summary a decent enough session beer, I enjoyed my half pint but would perhaps appreciate it more on a warm summers day!
