Perpignan73 (30) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2016
500ml bottle, chilled, poured into a pint glass at home. Attractive clear golden colour; minimal head; aroma of malt, caramel/honey, spice and a little orange; sweet, malty taste; lots of spice and caramel palate with a balanced, bitter-sweet, dry finish. Left a lingering caramel taste around mouth and lips.

Hardly there aroma. Dusky brown amber appearance. Woody and hoppy tasting with a sweet aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cask (gravity dispense from a small oak barrel) at Wandsworth Common Beer Festival @ Le Gothique on 25 March 2011. Gold colour. A little hazy. Decent condition. No head. Burton-ish sulphur aroma. Clean on the palate. Decent bitterness. Oak-aging a straight session bitter doesn’t seem the most obvious thing to do but it did seem to me to end up rather more interesting and enjoyable than the normal version. Although I can’t say I found the oak particularly prominent per se.

Ethereal (2421) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 31, 2009
Gravity dispense straight from the oak cask at the "Meet the Brewer" evening at La Gothique, Wandsworth Common, 4th Dec 09. Hazy copper amber. Flat. Muted hop aromas on nose. Vanilla character added. Smooth, slightly heavier palate. Plum, sweeter malt flavours are now much more evident as the bitter finish is greatly diminished. Coats the mouth, bit of a "cold tea" feel. Very different from the original beer.
