COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Originally a September 2006 special. Also available bottle conditioned.
A pleasant refreshing golden ale brewed with a blend of pale malts with a hint of crystal malt and roasted barley. The hops are selected from of the best of British fuggles and goldings supplemented with hops from the other side of the Atlantic. The sweet aroma is of incense and elderberry with hints of caramel spicyness for an unforgettable pint.

imdownthepub (10141) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2010
Cask conditioned at The Turf Tavern, Oxford. Amber with no head. Not in the best of condition, but quite an underwhelming beer for the gravity, thin on the palate and a little lifeless. Some biscuity malt and a touch of hop, quite dull.
