downender (7795) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2009
On gravity at the Bank, Bristol 08/08/09. Deep copper in colour with a slight white head. Aroma of biscuit malts and grassy hops. Flavour had plenty of chewy malt, a whiff of orange hops and smoething sweet in the background, before a satisfying bitter finish. A lot going on for 3.7% ABV and very drinkable.

Theydon_Bois (16423) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2015
Bottle from the brewery, at the holiday cottage, 28/10/15. Clear copper amber with a decent light beige covering that retains well. Nose is malt forward, toffee, light vanilla, trace of brown bread. Taste comprises biscuit malt, toffee, dark fruit, raisen, light tobacco. Medium bodied, light prickly carbonation but not in a detrimental way, semi drying close with a trace of bitterness. Decent well rounded bitter.
