Cask. Goldeny orange colour with a small head. Aroma is caramel malts, some bready notes as well as mild wooden, resiny and floral notes to it. Flavour is rather similar, but has a quite nice nutty and grassy approach to things. Pleasant.

Cask @ CBC Clerkenwell. The pour’s deep amber with a small head. The nose is honeyed pear, some brown bread. Rich nutty malty aromas. The taste is similarly malt focussed. More toffee, toasted bread. Slight red berry tang. Brown sugar. Dry finish. Light body, fine carbonation. Overall, a really well-rounded bitter. Everything in its right place.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle - Dark gold with a small head. Aromas are dusty with apples and citrus. The hops are noticeable with a light biscuit in there too. Flavours are biscuit malts with lightly sour citrus and a dry finish. Not much going on. Nothing to make me feel any pride.
