Cask at Southampton Arms, London NW5 on 1st March 2010. Copper with mostly diminishing off white head. Sweet malts and a deliciously smoked undertone that lasts to the end, with some grapefruit citric notes alongside. A softly textured mouthfeel, giving a beer that is very easy to drink for its 5.5abv.

A very good beer. Having tried all available at the cannon, this was my favourite. Plenty of caramel and something darker. Nice mellow, but full, hoppiness. Quite strong and full bodied, medium palate. good condition.
