UPDATED: SEP 23, 2012 Clear amber, thin white head; aroma of sweet summer fruit; sweetish fruit leads the flavour too, with a hint of orange peel, some faint spice and a hop presence prevents the sweetness from being too dominant; a tinge of bitterness in the finish; this is a beer of delicate charm with subtle warmth throughout; really good

cask at Guildford Arms about a month ago - Pours deep golden with a lingering white head. It smells of bread and malt. The flavor is sweet, lightly fruity, and bready. It has a smooth, creamy mouth feel with mild hops in the finish. Not bad.

The Baron. Resolving gold with a tight nitro collar and milk-like drapes. Gentle orange, pine and dried fruit aroma. Sweet slippery palate; orange tang, pine hints and booze melding into a lasting creamy malt finish with suggestions of oak and cashew. Clean, pleasant and anonymous.
