Taste comprises summer fruits, ribena, some hop presence, sugars, caramel. Medium body, fine carbonation, dry bitter finish. A decent enough bitter.

Cask at the Greyfriar, Reading. Deep amber with a middling cream head. Toffee, earth, a touch of lemon and a smear of fart. The malt is definitely in charge of this very traditional style bitter. Decent rich mouthfeel but I don’t like farts in my pint.
