Cask @ Bankers Draft, Bedford. Golden brown, clear with not much head but decent lacing. Aroma of honey and wood. Mostly dry in the taste, a bit of bitter herb. Medium dry finish. I like it more over the course of the pint, which is a good sign. Am I warming to Grainstore? Watch this space.

Bottle @ Deans Winter Shelter Tasting, courtesy of jmgreenuk. Rutland tick, huzzah!! Pours a clear amber beer with a thin, off white head on top. Aroma is quite herbal, cinnamon and some caramel. Flavor is medium sweet with a watery mouthfeel. Quite a herbal take on the ESB style. Decent.
