2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from the brewery. It pours clear amber with a small white head. The nose is soft, toasty grain, brown bread, stone fruit and earth. The taste is smooth, soft, mellow, toasty grain, earth, grassy and a touch of citrus rind with a short, dry finish. Light body and fine carbonation. Not bad really, just not very much to it. You could chug a lot for sure.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask @ White Hart, Crawley. Orange amber, negligible head/lacing. Scent is woody, musty and sulphurous. Bitter and sour notes dominate the taste. Grows on you, but perhaps a beer to respect but not necessarily to love.
