Cask at JDW, Streatham Hill. Pours a slightly hazy amber within a white head. Aroma has a slightly sweet maltiness alongside some red berries. Medium body, light carbonation. Light toast, some sticky dark fruit, red berries, a little apple, hint of sourness, caramel... A little thin, and a bit dull really.
