Cask @ The Red Lion, Leytonstone. The pour’s medium amber with a small head. The aroma’s of sugared berry, caramel, general spice rack, cinnamon. The taste is more spice - cinnamon, ginger, anise, brown sugar. Nice, robust malt profile. Plenty of caramel. A touch of wood and vanilla on the finish. Medium body, smooth. Overall, pretty decent. Perhaps a bit too spicy-heavy to drink a lot of, but this is still quite good.

Cask at The Claret. It pours clear amber with a medium beige head. The nose is winter spice, earth, caramel, orange peel and dried berry. The taste is earth, wood, winter spice, pumpkin, squash, raisin, light caramel and resin with a dry, lightly spiced finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. I really like the balance.

On cask at Cloisters. Pours an amber colour with a thick white head. Lovely hoppy aroma with pine, pineapple, grass and spiced pumpkin. Similar flavours with prominent pine hops. Moderate carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Delicious!
