Oakes (12551) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 18, 2014
Golden-amber. Has a fairly earthy character on the nose, slightly towards the hop. Juicy and biscuity, with a lot of hop bitterness and a slightly crackery character, finishing quite dry.

Theydon_Bois (8652) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2013
Cask at the Sussex Arms, Twickenham Green, 04/05/13. Clear golden amber with a thin white head. Nose is malt, light hops, touch of cramel - a little thin and lacking in aroma. Taste comprises citrus notes, hops, caramel, malt. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, light bitterness in the finish. Drinkable but a little boring.
