Cask@Old Fountain. Amber colour, mediumsized beige head. Aroma is caramel malts, fruits and some slightly syrupy notes as well. Flavour is at first very sweet malty, caramelly and also has some nice liquorish notes. In the finish the whole thing goes quite wooden and grassy bitter.

Cask handpull at Victoria, Earl Soham. Pale copper, thin off white head. Quite a hoppy session bitter, some toffee malt, good dusty drying finish. Some apricot fruit. Rather a nice session beer that has certainly got good hop.

Fin (7379) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2006
Bottle August 05 picked up from the shop near the brewery. Another Earl Soham beer which fails to excite me, light brown in colour, quite hoppy and with a reasonable bitterness present throughout, it’s fine.

Bottle Conditioned. This was a gift from chris_o. An out of date British bottle conditioned beer. Hmmm. Thanks Chris! Anyway, the hops have not survived. And there is the expected sharpness. Beyond that I can detect the possibility of this being a nice beer. But at the moment this is siimply a drain pour. Average mark given.
