Cask (handpump) @ The Swan, 1 Park Road, Faringdon, Oxfordshire, England SN7 7BP.

Clear medium orange amber colour with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, toasted - caramel, moderate hoppy, citrus, wood. Flavor is moderate sweet and bitter with a long duration, nutty bitter, almost metalic, earthy bitter notes. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft to flat. [20111022]

Clean light tawny. Light horse blanket and dull hops. Very mellow a long aramel finish not amazing when it hits your mouth and then an airy bitterness then that delightful finish.

Cask, Gravity at Banbury Beer Festival, Oxon, 09-05-09 I rated very little on the Saturday as I just drank and danced yesterday but having tasted the other Halfpenny beer the day before I felt compelled to give this one the once over. Pours amber with a thin white head, looks in good nick. Fairly standard session beer but that is in no way a black mark against this beer, as its been really well crafted. Its simple flavoursome, hoppy, bitter, crisp and sweet in all the right places, good stuff. A7 A4 F7 P4 Ov14 3.6

Cask conditioned at Banbury Beer Fest ’09. Amber with white head. And here we have it, the archetypal malty, biscuity session bitter. Good easy drinking, nothing to put off the drinker in dodgy flavours, good honest beer and all the better for it. I would be happy to spend an evening in its company.

On gravity at the Reading Beer Festival 01/05/09. A bit of confusion here, as the festival staff swore that the beer coming out of the barrel marked "Old Lech" was in fact the Ha’penny. By that point, I was past caring, however, the beer was a pleasant amber in colour, with plenty of malt flavour, including some powdered chocolate and a lingering bitter finish. Good stuff.
