[Cask at the Monk’s Retreat (JDW), Reading] Very fruity up front (sweet stewed plums & apple?). Caramel and some herby hints followed through, including some rather pleasant hints of burnt caramel, like the scrapings from the bottom of the caramel pan. Restrained bitterness in the finish. Rather enjoyed this.

Cask, JDW, Carlisle. Looking at the ratings and overall score, I know I’ve had this just out of condition. Hoppy nose and palate, possibly just a bit tired. Has the Mordue flavour, but served a bit too cold and with a fair haze. Would love to try it on form.
