Cask handpull. Mostly clear amber coloured pour with a lasting off white creamy top. Aroma is nutty, raisin bread, bit of staling, dried apple. Flavour is composed of nutty light toffied malts, raisin and dried apples, little dishwater. Some rough grains in the finish. Palate is medium sweet, moderate cask condition. OK bitter but pretty boring.

MoritzF (9448) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - MAY 31, 2014
(bottle) Clear, dark amber colour with a short and tanned foamy head. Slightly ashy malty aroma with notes of caramel, accompanied by slightly grassy and subtle fruity hops. Moderately sweet and slightly bitter flavour, light bodied with a soft carbonation. Mildly roasted malty taste with notes of caramel, bread crusts and ashes, combined with lighter spicy and slightly grassy hoppy accents; bitter-sweet and slightly roasted malty finish with spicy and delicately fruity hops. Unspectacular but likeable. 16.IV.14

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - NOV 30, 2009
Cask conditioned handpump Harp London. An amber coloured beer with sweet notes and caramel. Yeasty and peppery in a Harveys way like the Wandle, but again it’’s not in Harveys’ class. A touch of berry fruitiness to give it a little interest.
