Chelmsford Beer Festival. Clear dark amber beer. Residual off white head. Smooth palate. Sweetish malt with a whisper of esters. Candy fruits in the undertone. Lacto. Smooth dry finish. A little too much with the malt sweetness but not bad.

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.

Gravity at Cambridge Beer Festival 2009. Dark brown with a good-sized head. Straw, malts in the scent, with some sulphur too. Lovely complex hoppy, fruity beer with a nice balance, marred by some sulphur on the end.

Cask @ the Oakdale Arms, London.
Pours a nice, chestnut brown with a small, creamy, off-white head. Aroma is sweet, quite nutty, light raisins and roasted malts. A touch of liquorice as well. Light carbonation, okay mouthfeel. Flavour is soft, rather elegant, some hazelnuts and light sweet liquorice. Quite drinkable.

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.
