Bottle from Millets Farm shop, Oxon 23.06.12 Pours amber with a white head, typical British bitter, fruity with bitter edge. Some maltiness, not normally my choice of beer these days but it looks great and isn’t bad. A6 A5 T6 P3 Ov11 3.1

cask-conditioned the Radnor Arms, Coleshill 30/7/2011. Amber with a slight, off-white head. Aroma of biscuit malts and citrus. Flavour had more fruit, some solid malts and a lengthy bitter finish. Good.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2011
Cask conditioned gravity dispense Banbury BF 2011. A copper coloured beer with whitish bubbles for a head. A very bitter beer. Fruity and grassy hops in the nose. Sharp bitterness in the mouth. Tasty, but does need more malt balance.

imdownthepub (13397) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2011
Cask conditioned at Banbury Beer Fest ’11. Amber with white head. Quite a simple, light tasting bitter, there is a baked bread malty note, a little yeasty followed by a dry, leafy hop note. Easy drinking with decent bitterness, reasonable.
