3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask conditioned at Banbury Beer Festival ’15. Amber with white head. This proved to be quite a sweetish, malty, fruity beer, skinny peach notes with a slightly fungal background. There is a late, leafy bitterness. Just okay.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hand-pulled pint on 22nd Apr 2014 in the Crown Inn, Oakengates. Poured a good looking mid-range copper colour with a white head that hung around.
Malty front to the nose with the hops taking over very quickly, a mild citrus undertone. The taste also had a mini malty sweetness initially and again the hops took over to give the flavour a more bitter feel, with those citrus notes just below the surface throughout. Well worth trying if you come across it.
