Toffee and caramel dominate with hops pushed to the background. Gentle and smooth and very, very easy to drink. Doesn’t blow your head off but an excellent product from a highly professional brewery.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
at the tap in the village with ethereal. i think it smells of pencil sharpenings(if that is a word) or more formally graphite, and hops (it is a beer after all!). dark cherry wood colour. And hey, i would never have guessed, it tastes of roasted nuts, still a bit metallic but not so much pencil any more. Strage pint it is but not bad.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask at the Brewery Tap, Wimbledon Village, 4th March 2008. Rich chestnut brown colour with a strange aroma of hops and graphite (like pencil sharpenings). Hops and malt are well balanced but there’s a metallic note. Light at the front of the mouth and then gets fuller. Ok, but didn’t wow me.

Cask@Sussex BF. Tastes quite nutty and caramelly. It is quite malty, and initally sweet, but quickly dries in the end, with a nutty dryness. Crystal malt characters are very obvious in this beer.
