[Cask at The Castle, Castleton] Deep, inviting brown colour with a thick creamy head. Sweet malt and toffee dominate, with fruit vinous flavours swirling around the edges. Sweet, yet dry and sour at the same time. Good stuff!

Fin (7364) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2008
Cask at The Bell, Banbury, Oxon 28-12-08. Had three pints of this and found it most enjoyable. Poured mid brown but with good clarity and with a nice white head. Good full on fruity malty beer, little bit of soft fudge and toffee and a nice bitterness. Really decent and in great nick. A6 A5 F7 P4 OV14
