COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Special - October 2011.
The aroma is intense with malt and copious resinous hops. The flavour is amazingly rich, which is balanced by truckloads of leafy hops, spice and citrus.

Cask conditioned at The Victoria, Birmingham, on 08/11/11. Rich brown ale with slightly hoppy, resinous aroma. Good malt weight flavour-wise with well balanced hops complementing but not overpowering. Spice and liquorice notes very pleasant on the aftertaste.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - NOV 6, 2011
Cask conditioned Handpump Far From The Madding Crowd Oxford. A chestnut coloured beer with an off-white head and lace. Superb citrus hops throughout with bready malts in the style of a US amber. Excellent mélange of hops, malt and fruit. Very well brewed and tasty.

Benzai (8563) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - NOV 1, 2011
Cask @ The Market porter, London. Clear light orange, small white lacing. Smell and taste malts, grains, also a bit cellar and musty: don’t like it. Low carbo, low body, very dead. Not good imo.

imdownthepub (10497) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2011
Cask conditioned at Far From the Madding Crowd, Oxford. Amber with no head. Not sure why I didn’t get on too well with this, but I found it over resinous a quite flat. The hops are there, but not really to my taste.
