At Rutland Beer Festival... Silky smooth, very very nice flavour. But doesn’t look or smell the part.

Cask at the Henley Brew House. Hazy amber with a thin white head; aroma of damp hay; soft and grainy with a sweet caramel malt taste; and a dry, woody, finish. A satisfying rural bitter.

This is a beer that definitely shines in the cask - perhaps the dry hopping makes all the difference.

From a freshly tapped cask direct from the brewery at Henry’s wedding, and sampled repeatedly that evening. With no dispensing system poured an extremely flat light copper colour. This is a very pleasant classic English session beer, well balanced with good dry fruity marmelade hop character. Maybe not the sort of beer you’d rate highly as a standalone rate, but an excellent selection for a wedding - dry and bitter enough to be moreish, quenching, light enough in alcohol - a very good choice Henry!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Handpull pint at Ye Olde Cock. Clear amber-gold, lasting solid creamy bone white head. Aroma is floral, more than honey sweetness, maybe a little dishwater in there. Taste - yes, a bit sour, but mostly acidic grassiness that almost completely obscures the sweetness - a little alcohol. Chewy, thick, very airy and amazingly bitter based on the aroma impression, astringent and dry and a bit bitterly coating in the linger. Pretty solid stuff.
