COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Approachable with an inviting complex aroma, this beer is well balanced with a fusion of hops and mellow malt in the mouth.  An easy drinking session ale with hints of spice and chocolate from UK Phoenix hops.

Scopey (6865) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2014
Cask at the Harp. It pours lightly hazy amber with a medium off-white head. The nose is earthy, toast, brown bread, berry and kinda cheesy hop. The taste is smooth, toasty, brown bread, earth, light peppery notes, leather and wood with a dry finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. Old leather sofa on the finish. Pretty old-school for my taste. So-so.

Leighton (11030) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 6, 2013
Cask at the Harp - London. Pours clear amber with a modest, foamy white head. Lovely, sessionable bitter, mild brown bread, some ripening berries. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Great condition. Balanced finish, further ripe berries, light leafy bitterness, balancing bready sweetness.

Theydon_Bois (8718) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2013
Cask at EBF XVI, 09/11/13. Hazed chestnut brown with a thin light tan covering. Nose is bready malts, light spice, dark fruits. Taste comprises dark toffee, pinch of spice, bready malts, tangy fruit notes, straw. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, dry bitter notes in the finish. Acceptable bitter but wouldn’t be rushing to find this one again.

imdownthepub (10291) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 10, 2013
Cask conditioned at Egham Beer Festival #16. Cloudy brown with no head. A bit of a morass of a beer unfortunately not in the best of condition. Some bitterness, some biscuit notes but the hops were really quite masked. Not great.

Fin (7421) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 18, 2013
Had this at Oxford Beer Festival, Oxford, Thursday 17th October 2013 My second beer of this festival and the second from this new brewery. I have to start by commenting on the fact that this is another good beer from Clarkshaws. This starts off a little sweet with chocolate prominent, good low to middling bitterness, I guess that this is a standard bitter (not 100% sure) if so the bitterness is about right. Fruity nose with citrus showing, malts come to the fore with chocolate again. Nice stuff and another popular beer with my work colleagues. A7 A4 T7 P4 Ov14 3.6
