Cask conditioned at The White Horse, Banbury. Gold with white head. This was quite light and sweetish on the malts with a fruity hop flavour, tangerine came to mind, just a hint of tanginess and a late bitterness. Pretty decent.

Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Copper with a small white head. Pleasant malt aroma of the ’dusty old sacks in barn’ variety. Distinctively fruity, near vinous taste. Some sourness and background malt. Sharp bitter finish. I enjoyed this. ABV is definitely 4.6% nowadays.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Fruity - peach and banana - esters. Creamy in the mouth, pale malts, some grain and a little lactic. Low on hops, and fruity esters poke out instead. Doesn’t seem to know what it is.

Cask, Far From The Madding Crowd, Oxford. Copper, a bit of white head. Vague caramel aroma, a little flower pollen, blackberry. Soft wandering malt sweetness with a little toast. A touch of bitterness. Nothing offensive, but not much to praise.
