Cask handpull at The Foundry Canterbury. So this was getting towards bottom of the barrel but it was still good. Solid spicy rye on aroma good red fruits and then citra and chinook finish. Probably their best beer so far. Really tasty. Lovely hop

Beer4000 (4313) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 15, 2013
500 ml bottle purchased from The Tiddly Pomme, Faversham. A clear, amber body with a nice, creamy off-white head. Not particular strong, but pleasant aroma of malt, toast and citric hops. Flavor is sweet, smooth malty, slightly toast and a good fruity bitterness. Fine and balanced body, aftertaste is sweet malty with a good bitterness. Very pleasant.

imdownthepub (9623) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2012
Cask conditioned at The Queen’s Head, Rye, Sussex E. Chestnut with cream head. Tricky one this, there was a sour grain flavour about it, toffee, vanilla and a hint of alcohol. Looks like it wasn’t at it’s best, but still drinkable so not returned. Hmmm.

Cask supplied by Harrisoni at Pat’s birthday tasting. Colour is like a nice brandy or cognac. Clear reddish brown. Nose is very good. Sweet hoppy rye, touch of citrous. Taste is unexpectedly simple, bit of malty rye, but not much else.
