Bottle. Pours towards a clear amber with a white head. Aroma has some sweet caramel malts, weak sweet estery notes, some grassy hops, sweet biscuit and toffee. The taste has notes of grassy hops, caramel, biscuit, sweet toasted malts and some more dry grainy notes. Fine beer.

On cask at the sraf. Golden with a thin head. Orange and light herb on the nose. Confirmed on the taste and with good maltiness. Seems bitter initially but good persistent finish.

500ml bottle from Oak Tree Inn Shop, Balmaha, Scotland (£2.99):
This definitely started well & I was really enjoying the sweetness on the nose early on but sadly this wasn’t carried through to the flavour & the earthy malts & bitterness seemed to take more of a front seat. The biggest disappointment was the fact that the beer almost seemed watery in places as well as being a touch bland before the background fruits appeared right at the end but these could have been stronger & the beer would have a better one for it.

downender (7960) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2015
Cask-conditioned at the Seven Stars, Bristol 3/3/2015. Deep copper in colour, with a frothy, off-white, head. Sweet, husky, malts, some hedgerow fruits, toffee and a lingering bitter finish. Elements didn’t come together.
