Fin (7257) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 5, 2012
Cask, handpump at The White Horse, Banbury, Oxon 05.03.12 Pours brown, good clarity with a slim white head. This is a textbook BBB, lightly fruity, lightly bitter, some caramel sweetness and with barely a whiff of excitement about it. Despite my rather boring comments on this beer, it was served in good nick, looked great and there was nothing wrong with it all all other than the fact it was a BBB. A6 A5 T5 P3 Ov11 3.0

A Mes rate: gravicask at Harpenden Beer Festival.
Amber brown with a thin off white head. Standard bitter all round. Decent balance of earthy malt and faintly bitter hops. Nothing much else happening unfortunately. Decent enough, just lacking in character and a little dull.
