Cask, half-pint shared with Finn at The Market Porter. Clear copper coloured body topped by a bubbly, white head. Herbs, almond and mid-sweet malts to the nose. Plain malty flavoured taste, hints of almond. Malt-fruity, bitter tail. Does not feel thin on the swallow. Quite nice (London, 04.11.2012).

sm89walt (1766) - Northern Beaches, Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 5, 2011
Cask (gravity) - The Duke of Wellington, Norwich. Clear copper coloured body & a small though lasting off-white head. Difficult to get much aroma-wise. Nutty, toasty, biscuity flavours, some mid fruit orangy tang and a drop of earthiness with an OK finishing bitterness. Fair for the ABV but no great shakes. Lightish body, soft palate textre, short to medium length finish. Fairly dull overall & ordinary but drinkable enough.

The Rake. Wow. Bags of flavour and character. Body is robust. Stunning beer at any strength, quite remarkable for being 3.8%. This is a damn good brewer.
