3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask conditioned at The Turf Tavern, Oxford. Chestnut with slight head. A pretty smooth, malty beer with heavy toffee, caramel flavours. Quite cloying and a touch sweet for me to really enjoy it. Not totally sure about this one.

Cask (Gravity) at Charlbury Beer festival 04-07-09 Pours hazy dark amber, another beer that whilst tasted fine, condition wise was a little too hazy. Some dusty hops show. Its fruity feels quite thick in the mouth, drinks well but never excites. A6 A2 F6 P3 Ov13 3.0

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask (gravity dispense) at Ealing Beer Festival, May 2006. More deep copper colour than red, I’d say. Toffee and faint chocolate in the aroma. Soft, smooth mouthfeel with some caramel malt and a touch of treacle sweetness. Dries out a bit on the finish. Despite all the malt touches, the mouthfeel was a bit lightweight. More hop presence would have pepped this up a bit.
