Cask. Aroma caramel malt with bread undertones. Pour copper with white top. Taste biscuit malts wih some hoppiness in the savour. But something is clearly lacking. For me the balance goes as it dwells on the palate with a bitter aftertaste that needs some contrast.

Tried at a bistro in Stamford. The beer was probably past its prime,. Amber colour with no head. The aroma was a touch musty. The taste was flat, but had the promise of malt and a nice bitter finish.

On cask at JDW in Coalville - Not the most inspiring. A copper body, vague white head. Bit of malt and caramel, but not too much to impose itself. Taste - okay - but nothing noteworthy. A boring bitter.

Malt based golden ale with a disappoint small head that doesn’t cover its top. Glows a bit thought.
