Theydon_Bois (7002) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 20, 2013
Cask at GBBF ’13, 13/08/13. Light black with a thin tan head that clears edgeward. Nose is light pine, dark fruit, touch of Belgian yeast, sugars, hint of grapefruit. Taste comprises earthy notes, orange pith, mineral notes, light roast, light hops. Medium bodied, dry finish with light bitter notes. Interesting brew - quite liked this - it seems to have very mixed reviews after just 4! Bitter/mild meets CDA - I’d happily revisit this number! CDA non believers I blame !

Gravity, Leicester BF 2013, 21/03/13. Ruby topped with a pinkish grey collar. Excellent juicy US hop nose like blackcurrant jam, bramble, red apple and liquorice at once. Dusty smoked background engulfed by blackcurrant. Dry husky bitterness; liquorice, black pepper. Dusty cigar linger. Very good Mild (?) with BIPA leanings.

Thin black bitter with very little head. Has a very small roasted aroma, but nothing significant. There’s no real taste follow up to this.
