Originally brewed by mistake when one of the brewers put the wrong sort of malt into a batch of Red Rock but realised his mistake before he added the hops. A quickly devised blend of Goldings and Bramling Cross produced a wonderful dry, nutty beer which is perfectly balanced.

Cask conditioned at The Turf Tavern, Oxford. Burnished gold with slight head. Heady, flowery beer, quite intense really, resinous hops, but a bitter nutty malt makes it a little unbalanced. Not really to my taste.

Bottle. Hazy amber brown with a large off-white foam. Aromas are toffee malts with citrus. Woody and earthy with cream and spices. Flavours are sweet toffee malts with lots of grapefruit. Some real lemonade with grapefruit and light woody pine on the finish. Has a long dry aftertaste. A very good bottled bitter.

Bottle, had this back in November 2006 picked up from picked up at Darts Farm, Topsham, Nr Exeter, Devon 12-11-06. This poured a hazy amber colour with hops on the nose. Taste came across as being a bit homebrewy which is fine it was also quite fruity, some sourness and hops again. Ok

Quack-Duck (9120) - Down South, GERMANY - SEP 1, 2008
bottle, from Darts Farm. Cloudy amber-copper colour, mid-sized head. Malty base, pleasantly hoppy, especially in the finish. Intensive herbal flavours and hints of blueberries. Quite spicy. A good one!

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2009
Bottle from Arden Wines. Tight uneven white head over misty orange. Almost witbier looks with plenty of haze and bags of lace. Lovely agricultural gooseberry and dried apricot fruit aroma with coniferous and jammy citrus hints, maybe mango. Flavour picks up where the aroma ends, bringing plenty of tangy dried apricot yeast, hops and a sprinkle of pineneedles to the mix. Saaz and Goldings? Full in the mouth and clinging with lace. Impressive.

On gravity at the Green Man, Bristol 26/09/10. Deep gold with a slight, white head. Earthy malt aroma with soem grassy hops and a touch of fruit. Flavour was yeasty, with some cereal malts, sweetish fruits and bitter finish. Fine.
