Half-pint, cask ale, shared with Finn at Great Western Hotel Loco Bar. Filmy layer blanketing the glass. Close to clear amber-brown. Grass and brown malty nose. Blended taste of mellow fruits and caramel. Marmalade impression. Mid-sweet ending. Fair enough (Exeter 27.09.2016).

Cask conditioned at Harbury Beer Fest ’12. Brown with white head. Dry, malty bitter with an earthy back-note and twiggy type hop. Lasting bitterness on the palate but not overly exciting. It’s ok.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 50 cl. Courtesy of Alice BS. Pours a hazy nutty brown with a small, rough off-white head. Subtle roasty aroma with a little licorice. Medium body, low carbonation, sweet roast and some ddried dark fruits. Somewhat minerally. Distinct bitterness in the finish. Closer to a Mild than to a Bitter I’d say. 051011
