Fin (9581) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 30, 2010
Cask, handpump at The Coach and Horses, Dronfield, 29-01-10 Pours gold with a white head, some haze. The nose is hoppy but blunted a little, there is a clear vanilla creaminess to this both on the nose (mostly) and in the mouth. Taste is not as crisp as you might expect, soft hoppiness not that crisp, lengthy bitterness, decent stuff but not as good as the Equinox that I tried it alongside. A6 A4 F7 P4 Ov14 3.5

Cask Stillage at Nottingham Castle, Nottingham 09/10/2009 Pale hop aroma. Clear golden coloured hoppy pale and creamy on the palate with a crisp dry and slightly bitter full malt finish. Thanks to Haddonsman for pointing this one out amongst the hundreds of ales on offer at this ever-growing beer festival!
