imdownthepub (13234) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 9, 2015
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.

bhensonb (14092) - 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?
