Golden colour with a decent white head. Aroma is light hops. The flavour is malty, lightly hoppy, biscuity/cereals. OK beer, but nothing special going on.

Hand pull, The Felix Holt (JDW), Nuneaton, 23/10/12. Creamy, faintly misted gold. Buttered hay aroma; some oak and minerals. Marzipan and buttered oak flavour. Not my thing.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(on tap - but really thought the pump was Black Raven) Slightly hazy golden with good white head. Odd, but not unpleasant aroma - mainly malt but with hints of butter and nougat. Medium body, medium carbonation. Refreshing fruity candy start, moving through biscuity malt to a nice bitter finish. Overall a nice beer.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Half pint, fresh and well-kept hand-pulled cask ale at Bon Accord. Hazy, golden body, small white head blanketing the glassware. Leafy hops to the nose. Blended taste of lightly spiced hops and bready malts. Bitter endnotes. Foamy in the mouth. Well bodied compared with the low abv. (Glasgow, 11.04.2012).
