50cl bottle poured into my Scapa Special pint glass. It pours a golden orange with a fantastic head and steady carbonation. The nose has sweet malt and very herbacious hops. The taste has hay and a long zingy nettley finish. The palate is rich with a long refreshing finish. So, so drinkable.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at the Market Porter, Southwark, London 27-10-07 Pours a dark golden colour with thin white head. Not much of an aroma detected but what there was came across as possibly fruity. Tasted pleasantly bitter and started off great, wonderful fullness of flavour lovely maltiness and bitterness, quite dry towards the end, but it never quite pulled it off and failed to be the truly great beer that I thought it might be. Coulda’ been a contender!
