Cask at GBBF 2006. Copper colour with bubbly beige head. Good floral hop and yeast aroma. OK bitter. Goodish hop on end. Some caramel. In fact I rather like the hop on this and a good start to the Thursday session.

Nose is on the thin side, corn bread, cereals, pale malt, grain. The taste picks up the pace a little with light vanilla, faint hops, biscuit, mellow fruits. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with light bitterings. Ok bitter.
