Cask half pint at The Cottage, Cardiff. Copper colour, moderate off-white head. Pleasant malty and nutty aroma. The flavour is moderately malty but still quite dry first, sweeter in the middle with a hint of caramel, and a dry and "dusty" finish.

4.5% Cask gravity at Planet Thanet BF 2015. How I haven’t rated this I have no idea. Clear deep brown collar of bubbles. Malty aroma. Malty nutty flavour. Really interesting flavours. Verges on the marzipan but also almost sour too. Not great condition but definitely interesting. Good.

Sampled on draught at O’Neill’s in Muswell Hill. Copper colour with very little head. Aromas of malt. The taste is mainly caramel malts, but there is not much hop taste here. The finish is a little sour. Not a beer I would seek out again.
