[Cask at the Falcon (JDW), High Wycombe] Glowing amber with a slight white head. Apple, caramel and a whiff of fart. Buttery caramel grows in a fairly sweet finish, Utterly unremarkable.

500ml bottle. Cloudy copper with almost no head. Hoppy aroma, peach, some sweet malt. Taste is also a bit ice tea like, some sweetness, peach aroma, leading to a full hoppy finish. A little bit strange, but not too bad of course. And not so golden/blond, by the way.
