Blackfriers. Aroma is far richer than expected with toffee malts, hints of spice, floural and citrus hints. Taste again is fuller than expected, rich malts, loads of fruit and spice, a citrus finish finishs off excellently.

Cask conditioned at The Woolpack, Banbury. Gold with white head. Really fully flavoured for such a light ABV. Plenty of malt flavours with a good fruity background, a little spiciness then a big hoppy flavour. Plenty of bite with a lasting bitterness. A really decent beer.

Cask (Kitty’s, Helsinki)
Very dark orange, small spongy head. Aroma of sweet roasted malt and dusty hops. Mouthfeel is sharp and pleasantly refreshing, not quite watery. hints of brown almost sourness. Slightly drying, not quite resiny, hops give it a pleasant bitteness which stays for quite a long finish. For 3.8% this is a superb creation.

[on draught at The Retreat, Reading] Uncarbonated; malty, some citrus fruits, almost bordering on sweet and sticky at times but the hops come through at the end to take the edge off. A decent pint, this, and different enough to stand out from the crowd.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Cask at O’Connels Tampere) Light coppery colored, little lasting yellow head. Surprisingly rich aroma with sweet caramel and fruits, even some chocolate comes up. Also this standard real-ale lemon touch can be found. Thin to medium bodied, misses carbonation. Flavor is still nice with mild and sweet chocolate, lemon and hops come up in bitter aftertaste. Nicely balanced bitter, with some more carbonation this would be excellent.
