Pours kind of pale golden straw, hazy, with a white head. A slightly sulfurous, eggy note is detectable in the nose with some barnyard aromas, smelling a bit like a bad saison but without the brightness. The flavour is inoffensive, light malty with a subtle bitterness and a delicate soft fruit flavour in the background. Certainly the mouthfeel really is the attribute which comes through for this beer, which is soft, somewhat silky and substantial, within acceptable boundaries for the light style in my opinion although some might find it too thick. This is a fair session beer once you get past the smell and it has been made reasonably well, however it is really very boring and the íaromaí really does let it down.

Bottle from Teign Cellars,Newton Abbot. Sat outside stargazing in a cloud of my own breath post-Hinckley BF if memory serves. Dusty bronze with a slender white head. Aroma of earthy dung flecked roads, tractors, untrimmed bush and unwashed pig. Flavour has a minor added dimension of lemon zest and soft sappy hop with black bin liners of privet. Yeasty and average.

A subtle pale ale brew as it is mild in character but still carries a fine taste and finish.

36th CAMRA Cotswold beer festival (July 2012) in the lovely 15th century Tithe Barn was the setting for my tasting of this beer. Gravity poured pint: pale amber, almost golden in appearance, on top a thin covering of white foam. The aromas were of gentle hops and summer fruits; the taste however was malty and although there was a dry hop semi-bitter finish, it came across as a fine blend and a good, interesting brew.
