Cask; Special - May 2007.
Mysterious, deep red beer with plentiful hop character and a long, bittersweet finish.

imdownthepub (13397) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 4, 2007
Cask conditioned at The Woolpack, Banbury. Chestnut colour with white head. Cor, this ones a surprise, almost against calling it a bitter. Dark roasted malts, sweetish with chocolate malts, then a coffee note and then a zesty, american hop flavour zinging across the top. Very interesting and flavoursome, to me another C.V winner.

StueyD (1567) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2007
A dark orange brown coloured beer with a weak off-white head. A hoppy nose, fruity, but a bit sour, plus a hint of yeastiness. A dry zesty taste, hoppy, orange fruit flavour with a malty background flavour, that is taken over by a bready yeast flavour in the finish. (Cask - The Fox & Hounds, Heacham, Norfolk).
