Cask conditioned at The Lamb & Flag, Oxford. Amber with white head. There is a slightly farmy note initially, quite eggy, quite a bitter edge. This becomes quite fruity, fullish, malty, developing a mooreish quality. Pretty decent.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
cask @ The British Lion, Devizes. Medium-amber with thick frothy head. Nicely hopped aroma is flawed by some pedio. Soft palate with a strange aftertaste like hydrogen peroxide. The beer is dirty in places and probably not in the best condition but itís still not bad. Has a nice fruity malt character.

Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Gold with a small white head. Not a promising aroma: vegetal and sulphurous, but the taste is attractive: marmalade malt and a mid bitter finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask @ The Clarence, New Brighton. Slightly murky dark amber colour with a small off white head. Some fruit and hop lurking in the nose. Flavour had traces of more fruit , with some sweet malt notes and was pretty middle of the road stuff in a vaguely endearing way. Dryish bitter finish. Quite drinkable on the whole and probably one of the better brews Iíve tasted from this brewery.
