2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask conditioned at Egham Beer Festival #16. Hazy brown with slight cream head. This proved to be quite a sweetish, fruity beer but with a sweet toffee caramel flavour backing it up. It was a little too sweet for me, but it was ok overall.
