[Cask at the Hope Tap (JDW), Reading] Reddish amber with a moderate white head. Toffee, fudge, stewed apple and (oddly) tomato juice, with a rather metallic bitterness to finish. Itís got a nice smooth creamy mouthfeel, but the flavours are rather muted. Not great.

Cask. Deep copper shade with light gold head. Light malty and fruity aroma. First impressions taste-wise are dominated by very vivid toffee notes, with sticky red fruit and a hint of vanilla following. Loving the toffee character. This was rather tasty.
