2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: APR 23, 2008 Cask (handpump) at the Dog & Gun, Netheravon. As this was badged as Dog & Gun Ale, I rather assumed this was a rebadge of a Stonehenge beer because the pub was selling other beers from that brewery, which is just a few yards down the road. However, the landlord assured me it was Morrells Oxford Blue. I thought they’d stopped making this stuff but obviously not. Its a soft and fruity, slightly sweet, session beer. Not enough bitterness for my taste. Innocuous.

Cask Conditioned in The Wine Vaults, Banbury. Morrells sold up their city centre brewery for a quick fix profit and now the pubs are gone. Light brown colour with quickly fading head. Boring malt beer, thin and flavourless. Little finish, an unloved beer from an unloved ex brewery.

This is a pretty bland and unremarkable bitter, but it’s pleasent enough, and certainly drinkable. Still, it’s a shame that it’s soon to dissapear.

Golden color with a hint of red, flowerly and slightly fruity--struck me as cherry pie, i.e. artificial cherry--but a slightly flat composition overall. (Had on tap at Jude the Obscure, Oxford)
