3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask Conditioned at Charlbury Beer Festival 03. A copper coloured beer with no head (Gravity poured). Unfortunately many of the beers at the festival had any condition left, probably due to he heat, but with this beer there was a distinctive soft fruit and malt character. Good balance, probably my beer of the festival.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber colour. Restrained floral hop aroma. Dry, fresh and crisp with gentle bitterness. Some underlying soft malt and appley fruit. Easy-going and mellow, with some rustic edges. Not a blockbuster, but a decent drop. The blend of US and English hops works well. Cask, Oakdale Arms Beer Festival, February 2005.
