Cask (Craft Clerkenwell, London)
Pleasant bready aroma. Nice rich orange, small loose head. Good bitterness, some wooly dryness. Very solid simple bitter - balance good, and dangerously sessionable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask conditioned at Fleetwood Beer Festival ’15. Amber with white head. A Brown Ale? Not as we know it Jim. This is a hoppy beer on a sweetish, toffee’d malt. The hops cut through, tropical fruits, bitter and dry later. Really enjoyed this one.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
September 7, 2014 - on handpull at Craft Beer Co (Islington). Clear deep coppery amber, small frothy beige head. Light aroma of roast, some herbal bitterness, cereal grain. Taste follow - the bitterness initially takes a backseat to somewhat sweet fresh cereal malt, then it takes over - really seems more of a mild than a brown, but pleasant regardless of the style. Light body, not a lot of carbonation, starts a little sweet, finishes quickly and dry and the bitterness is more in the linger than the actual taste. A good one - no cola, sugar or syrup character here.
