Cask at Cask Pub & kitchen. Puts dark amber with a thin white head with poor lacing. Aroma is light hop with a fruity, bitter orange bite. Quite a lot of malt. Taste is slightly malty, mostly bready with fruity hops. Minimal carbonation.

Bottle from the Bottle Bank. Appearance - deep amber with a nice fluffy head. Nose - toffee, nuts and oranges. Taste - apples and light toffee and biscuit. Palate - close to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - I’d say this was a Bitter. Enjoyable.

Bottle from the brewer’s own stand at the Good Food Show at Birmingham NEC. Light orangey amber with obvious fizz. Fizz is the main thing on drinking too although got bread and orange too. Average tasting bitter, couldn’t get past the fizz.

Cask gravity at the Watford Beer Festival 2014. Poured a clear copper, with a thin white head. Aroma of malt, caramel and herbs. Grassy hop flavour, with some dry grain and angelica. Finish was earthy, with toasted malt and straw.

Cask gravity at the Watford beer fest 2014. Aroma is malt led with nutty caramel and some berry and fruitcake. Amberr brown coloured pour with a loose off white head. Flavour is caramel and nutty malts with a light sharp apple flavour in the finish. Some raisin and dried fruits linger. Palate is medium sweet and nice semi crisp finish. Good beer.

At the hub in truro uk on draft. Aroma of sweet maltynes. Taste is caramel and toffee and a floral hoppy aftertaste. Perhaps a tad sweet after a pint. V tasty beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

imdownthepub (11196) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 26, 2014
Bottled, 500ml from Trafalgar Wines, Brighton, Sussex.E. Amber with off white head. There is a smoothness to this, caramelised sugars, toffee notes, some sweetness, mid roasted malts along with a leafy earthy hop note. Just a little over safe.
