Cask at the George, Croydon. It pours deep brown with a small, bubbly off-white head. The aroma is bitter - sweet, dried fruits, cherry, fruit cake, oily, wood and leather. The taste is bitter, earthy, wood, leather, dull toffee, caramel, dried fruits and leaves with a dry, woody finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. Decent fruity character, but it is a touch twiggy. OK.
