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.

The_Osprey (3839) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2015
Cask at The George Inn, Borough. Someone ordered 10 pints of this before me - popular! Hazy murky dark orange / brown, still, small scummy white head, light lacing. Aroma is biscuity, soft citrus. Body is medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is tangy resinous, some citrus, varnish and stale bread, soft bitterness. Plain and slow-drinking. Drying and palate-stripping yet somehow watery and thin. Not quaffable.

Taste is medium bitter and lightly sweet with notes of toffee, biscuit, freshly cut grass and citrus peel. Finishes lightly dry and bitter, citrusy. Light bodied with soft carbonation. Overall, decent bitter

Scopey (9768) - 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 (14703) - 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 (13437) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, 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 (11663) - 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.
