Cask; Regular.
A new beer (March 2007) to the range, this is in the modern IPA style - low strength with a moderate hoppy bitterness and a degree of maltiness. Light brown in colour, this beer has a traditional style bitterness to it, with a slightly fruity/toffee aftertaste.

jjsint (497) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2014
Cask @ Bedford Arms, Bedford. Light ruddy brown, thin with a bit of wispy beige head. Pleasant aroma of raisins, malt, toast. Taste is a crisp sweetness with a lingering bittersweet finish. Pleasant but not overly engaging, one to try and then move on methinks.

Cask @ O’Connel’s, Tampere.
Pours dark copper-red color with a small head. Aroma is nutty and a bit dry malty, some dry fruits also, very faint hops. Flavor is stuffy with nuts, malts and hay. Should have been a lot fruitier and hoppier.
