3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask conditioned at The Woolpack, Banbury. Chestnut colour with white head. I too quite liked this beer, richly roasted malt with a fruity, caramel background, there is a nutty 9hazelnut) character near the finish. Ends a little sweet, but the beer is fine.

Cask - Standing Order (JDW), Derby. Poured with a lasting, medium sized creamy beige head leaving a uniform lacing atop a clear ruby brown body. Sweet fruit, caramel notes & roasted malt aromas. Remains malt-forward on the tongue. Quite roasty and mildly fruity with a fairly decent finishing bitterness. Medium body & length finish, soft to medium palate texture.
