A full strength mahogany coloured beer, which has a moreishness typical of a beer possessing the fine balance of pronounced hop bitterness & aroma against a natural malty sweetness, creating a deceivingly drinkable beer.

Fin (7411) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2009
Cask handpump at the brewpub, Oakham, Cambs’ 23-01-09 Pours deep amber with a white head. Condition wise this really was quite excellent. Good streaky citric bitterness with a nice layer of honey, syrup and malts. There is a little bit of toffee banana and it has to be said that this beer drinks far easier than the abv would suggest.
