Cask-conditioned at the Commercial Rooms (JDW), Bristol 25/8/2015. Pale gold, with a slight, white, head that left rings of lace down the glass. Light citrus and stone fruits notes, with some grassy hops and solid malts, before a dryish finish. Enjoyable.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
30th June 2015: cask pint into a dimpled jug, Briar Rose, a Spoons in Birmingham. Pale amber body, thin white head that tried to leave some lacing. Not as aromatic as the name suggests: some floral notes in the nose and hints of Tropicana. Light malts in the flavours with a floral hop like finish. Decent enough blend but lacked depth and character.
