I know the beer well, and it doesnt sound like the cask found at the smithfield hotel, possibly some confussion there. This is a classic dark old ale, full of flavour and aroma. Found it in both the Edwardstone White Horse and the kings head in BIldestone, and other local pubs and beerfestivals. Brewed in an eco brewery. Which beer magazine labels the greenest in the world. A fine beer which is certainly a scorer for me!

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2009
A Mes rate. Cask at the Smithfield Hotel. Clean dark gold with a thin white head and very good condition. Fruity malt with some faint amyl nitrate notes. Middle of the road wheaty bitter but nice and drinkable. A decent enough scoop, just not a big scorer.
