Cask conditioned at The White Horse, Banbury. Chestnut with cream head. This was a sweet, malty beer with a mashy, tarty character. Fruity, sourish peach perhaps with some red berry. Average.

Cask conditioned handpump Malt Shovel Northampton 08/04/14. A dark ruby coloured beer with an off-white head and lace. An apple and summer fruit aroma. Boozy in the mouth. Has a flavour of garibaldi biscuits soaked in booze. Interesting and tasty although you wouldn’t want more than one. Has a sherry note too.

planky84 (2644) - , Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2014
Cask at the NWAF, Derby, ’14. Reddish brown pour with a beige head. Aromas of orchard fruit and some poorly scrawled reference that looks like ’deer mirt’.. well there’s a first.... I really must step into the modern world and purchase one of those flashy phone thingys.... anyway back on track.... flavours of toffee and orchard fruit. Quite dry. Not bad.

Cask, The Brewery Tap. Copper with a cream top. Barrelly aroma , damp wood. Big vinous and date fruit at the front again demolished by shampoo bitterness. Strawberry, hay and caramel hints. The bitterness feels chemical and not hop-derived. No better than drinkable.
