Cask at Peterborough Beer Fest. Nut brown. Salty and bready. Light bodied and soft. The initial salty malt flavour just dies halfway through leaving emptiness behind it.

Cask conditioned - gravity dispense - Peterboro BF. The beer they refused to serve in a third pint measure (jobsworths). A mid to dark brownn coloured beer with a woody smoky aroma. The taste has little going on and the palate is quite watery. Dull. I was warned by someone who wanted to serve me a third (but was not allowed) that it wasn’t very good!!
