Cask @ Craft Islington. Brown with a small head. The nose is toasted brown bread, a bit of blackberry jam. Twigs, some cocoa. The taste is smooth caramel and chewy toffee. More hints of blackberry. Compost. Toast. Smooth and easy to drink. Solid effort.

Craft Clerkenwell. Cask. Almost clear dark amber beer. Tidy off white head. Palate is smooth with light carbonation. Mild caramel in the malt base. Somewhat insipid marmalade hops. Redemption comes by way of some sweet candy fruits. Finishes neutral.

bhensonb (11673) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 17, 2013
Cask at The Market Porter. Pours light brown with a creamy beige head. Floral aroma. Med body. Flavor is very floral and has light chocolate malt. It finishes bitter, which may well be from the malt. Changed my mind. Now it seems a little sweet chocolate. Tongue fatigue?

Cask at Egham United Services Club Easter Beer Festival 2013. A dark brown coloured pour with a small off white head on top. Hoppy, malty aroma. Tastes fruity, malty, some caramel and slight sweetness in there. Not bad.

Cask at the 14th Egham Beer Festival. Hazy, mid-chestnut with a loose cream head; muted malt aroma; soft malty body, and some dry spicy hops to finish with a touch of ginger and cinnaomin. Rather unispiringing.
