Cask at GBBF 2010. A red-brown beer with a lazing off-white head. The aroma has notes of caramel and malt as well as light notes of berries. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and citrusy hops, leading to a dry bitter finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: NOV 9, 2012 Cask gravity at GBBF 2010. Reddy brown, lasting beige head. Some fruity malt. Bit dullish to be honest. Fine, some good vitterness onend. But could do with a bit more fruitiness. Bit too sulphur as brewer said. But decent. Re-rate. Bit better than before but tea flavour us there and could be fruitier. Good condition though.

Cask at the Claude du Vall (JDW), Camberley. Amber with a tight cream head that left lots of attractive lacing; soft, bready malt taste; with soem woody bitterness to finish. Rather average.
