This is a fine traditional bitter style ale with a hoppy and almost fruity taste. It leaves a crisp finish and goes well with a pipe of fine tobacco. I very much like this ale and take pride in the fact that it is brewed locally. Itís got a pretty good kick on it too being 4.3 so itís hardly a lightweight but at the same time not too overpowering. Pretty much a perfect pint

Tastes and drinks like a standard pint of cask bitter, light spice and sweetness, but nothing especially exciting.

Cask conditioned at Banbury Beer Festival í15. Amber with white head. This proved to be a really simple malty bitter, reasonably dry, leafy, earthy hop note in the background. Itís okay.
