The Felix Holt (JDW), Nuneaton (Slaterís Premium Bitterí). Copper with a thick off-white collar draping the glass. Muted orange and blackcurrant aroma emerging from the foam; taste orange and red apple fruitiness receding into a lingering cashew aftertaste. Hops, yeast, malt. Good rounded bitter thatís not afraid to taste of something.

Cask-conditioned at the Staffordshire Beer festival, Seven Stars, Bristol 6/10/10. Amber coloured with a slight, off-white head. Malty aroma with some sweetness and lick of grassy hop. Flavour of cereal malts with a short, bitter finish. Forgettable.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
23rd July 2010. On tap at the Old Dispensary - Aldgate E1. Slightly hazy amber beer. Decent white head. Nicely balanced even malt and juicy orange hop. Misses a few marks for an appley streak. In good nick but possibly a few more days in the cellar would have been good. Perfectly drinkable nontheless.

UPDATED: MAY 29, 2012 Pours a rich brown, slightly oaky on the nose but a big burst of malt, with underlying sweetness and rich woody hops on the palate. Full bodied with lingering bitter and nutty finish. Re-rated in bottle, malty nose with hint of pepper & hay hops, crisp & malty, but a very faint metallic tang too.

Cask, gravity at the Kings Arms Beer Festival, Kidlington, Oxon 28-03-08 Mid amber pour some jaminess and marmalade flavours otherwise my scant notes on this one would indicate that there is little more going on. OK
