3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: FEB 18, 2006 Cask Conditioned at The Turf Tavern, Oxford.
Brown to Gold colour with lasting bubbly head. The Turf Tavern is Oxford CAMRA branch Pub of the Year for ’04 so the quality should be at its best and this proved to be a tasty, sl sour malt beer with rich fruity notes. There is a strong alcohol note, playing above its strength and a rounded smooth finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask, handpump at The Crown, Charlton-On-Otmoor, Oxfordshire, Sunday 29th December 2013 Pours copper in colour with a slight head, I thought that I had rated this as I have had it quite a lot over the years and a couple of times over the last weeks. Touch thin and watery but aside from that it is ok, caramel, nutty and with a little bitterness, (I wished they’d have upped the Cascade and Liberty), it is absolutely fine its a safe beer.
