Cask @ Shrewsbury Beer Festival 2013. Has a good amount of smokey bonfires and ash, with a nice maltiness and a touch of hops. Better than the smokey Pressure Point brew I had recently but still not quite hitting the mark.

Cask at Crown and Anchor. Pours a hazy amber with a thin head. The smoke is slightly noticeable in the aroma alongside a biscuit maltiness. Light body, mild carbonation. It's definitely smoky, some toffee too and a hint of prunes. OK.

Light to medium sweet flavor, lots of minerals, pale smoked malts, cheap ham. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Good and smokey to finish, fairly well balanced, more mInerals, light ham, white bread, hints of herbs. Actually a pretty decent smoked beer.

Cask (gravity dispense) at Egham Beer Festival, November 2012. More amber than red. Interesting choice of styles for an early beer for a new brewery. I didn’t think it quite came off. Quite chewy malt with rather subtle smoke. Not really ballsy enough to generate much of a wow factor. The underlying beer was fruity and, again, a bit understated. Seemed to fall rather between two stools - I know balance is fine & dandy ’n’ all but I tend to prefer smoked beers that are more in your face.
