Cask conditioned at Banbury Beer Fest ’08. Amber with no head. Pretty straightforward, up and down dry bitter. Malty, biscuity with a modicum of hops. Probably Fin is right here, it doesn’t travel too well.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cask at the Admiral Benbow, Shrewsbury, Salop, 19-10-07 Another corker from Stonehouse, looking at some of their ratings one can only conclude they either don’t travel too well, I had them quite close to their stomping ground, or this pub was keeping them in tip top nick, I think a combination of the two maybe. This beer poured amber again it had that soft malty aroma of its stronger stablemate Cambrian Gold. The taste was instantly toffee/fudge but with good bitterness towards the end with a nice citrussy hoppiness about it. A great session beer.
