A tasty old ale with a welcome caramel finish. Malty and full-bodied, you feel the added strength after a couple of these.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask at the White Horse, Oxford on 24th April 2013. Crystal clear copper with thin off-white laceless ring. Sweet malt aromas. Sweet in mouth - fruittella, children’s confectionery. Aftertaste much along the same lines with strawberry notes. Texture pleasant if one ignores the sugarsweet flavours. Not a favourite.
