UPDATED: MAY 10, 2009 1) Cask, The Crown, Nuneaton. Murky orange pint with a leafy hop aroma. Digestive biscuity malt with a tangy citrus bitterness. Lingering bitter finish with sweet malty afters.

Marzipan, vanilla, impression of oak, berry fruit hints, chalky finish with a good husky linger. So-so. (637313)

Darkish copper colour. Some biscuit notes in the aroma. Clean and dry palate - some hops, but malt is more prevalent. A decent basic session beer at the malty end of the bitter spectrum. Cask (gravity dispense) at Peterborough Beer Festival.
