Soft pillow head, smells of faint hops and barley with some hay. Nice white header and a solid beautiful bronze colour. Crispy bitter, with an oily sweetness to it. A bit oily, crips on the tip of the tongue, tastes of roasted barley, toffee hints. Well balanced late afternoon pint.

Cask at Garrick Pub, London - dug up some old notes circa Dec 2007.
Served at room temperature.
Pours beautifully clean deep amber body with dense white head and lace.
Moderate carbonation, decent body of malt, creamy texture.
Fruity nose; dark berries, malty toffee, which follows through to the body.
Quite a different British ale.
