imdownthepub (9668) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 11, 2003
Cask Conditioned at The Easington, Banbury. Eureka, my closest pub has become beer heaven, 9 Real Ales along the bar with plenty of interesting bottles as well, a 10 minute stroll away!! This is an orange amber beer with chunky head, dry body to the beer with earthy cereal notes. Thirst quenching, light beer, very pleasant.

maeib (8404) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2005
Cask conditioned - gravity dispense - Banbury BF. Aa amber coloured beer with a bit of soapy head. The beer is another wierd one with hints of sharp green apple in the aroma and some soapy apple washing-up liquid in the taste. All very dry and a bit cidery. Not sure what is intended here???

leaparsons (7805) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 30, 2004
Cask at the Criterion. Gold and bronze in colour. Aromas are caramel malts and quite floral hops. This is a sweet tasting beer with caramel and some nice spicy hops. Not a pretender at all.
