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.

Handpulled cask at JDW Harrow. Dark copper with an off white head. Fruitier than name suggests. Not much roast or nutty flavours. A little caramel and toffee with gentle hops. Overall its a very pleasent ale.

[Cask at the Back of Beyond (JDW), Reading] Brown with a moderate cream head and a good rich mouthfeel. Treacle up front follows through into a sweet, fruit taste with lemony hints. A woodland mulch bitterness at the end tries to balance but doesn’t quite achieve it, leaving a slightly sticky aftertaste. Far more interesting that most Rebellion ales - a good effort that for me didn’t quite work out.
