Cask. Coppery amber colour, small slightly off-white head. Aroma is wood, caramel malts, mild bitter grassyness along with some slight toasted notes. Flavour is quite much the same with some dry fruityness as well.

Cask (handpump) at the Monks Retreat , Reading on 27 April 2011. Reddish amber colour. Dry malt and moderately bitter hops dominate. Slight citric tang. Clean, quite firm mouthfeel. Nothing particularly remarkable here but it’s pretty solid, good drinking drop.

Leighton (18526) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2011
Cask at the Crosse Keys, JDW. Light brown pour with a light film. Mild malt aroma, hints of caramel. Not too nice flavor, notes of dried fruits and nuts, as well as leather. Light bodied with fine carbonation. A little bland. Finishes faintly sweet with hints of nuts and leafy hops. Not bad, but pretty average.

Hand pulled at the Last Plantagenet, Leicester. Amber appearance. Nutty, fresh tasting. Some leaf hops. Nice aftertaste of faint cat p*ss and grapefruit. Really enjoyable and seemed to be in very good nick.
