Hard to split from the Moor Revival. Very similar with more grass focus but dies well for the style. Incredibly balanced. Nice stuff

66 cl bottle @ home, BBE 10/2014
Aroma is quite light with some resiny hops, vanilla and juicy fruity tones. Flavour has vegetable tones, some resiny hops, minerals, woody notes and juicy fruits. Too much off-flavours here.

660 ml bottle from Ales By Mail, served in nonic pint glass. Beautiful dark sunrise orange, slightly hazy, with a off-white head which leave good lacing. Aroma of mainly spicy and herbal hops, caramel malts, biscuits/crackers, orange jam. Very pleasent moderate bitterness upfront, followed by a honey-like sweetness before a malty and toffee aftertaste. Spot-on average carbonation, on the lighter side of medium body, slightly creamy texture. Huge drinkabilty, definitely a proper session beer.

Bottle, Christmas present from Lalitha. Cool bottle. Poured cloudy amber with long lasting white head. Full hoppy aroma. Very robust version of classic bitter, plenty of malt toffee and bread, then bitter hop finish. Probably a really good one to have several of in the pub, less of one for a bottle at home. Tasty bitter.

UPDATED: DEC 16, 2013 Interesting. A lovely soft, sweet, hazy, murky, bitter kind of drink. Peach and wood vibes, nice, though one pint is enough.

(Cask at Dean Swift, Tower Bridge, London, 23 Nov 2013) Hazy amber colour with brief, foamy head. Fruity, hoppy nose with notes of orange peel, apricots and marmalade. Malty, fruity taste with apricots, orange, toast and a balanced citric bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with balanced sweetness. Tasty and well balanced. Nice one.
