Cask @ a pub in North London I can’t quite remember. Nice sessionable brown bitter, light fruit hops, teasing malts. A thirst-quencher.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask conditioned at Banbury Beer Fest ’14. Copper with white head. Mid roasted malty bitter, good depth to the body, biscuity, baked breadcrust then pleasant fruity hops meander through, creeping up rather than bursting giving some decent citrus notes. Really quite pleasant.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Mid brown in colour with, certainly in the sample I tried, a thick foaming head and as in all cask beers a low carbonation level. Initial slightly catty aroma from the American hops which soon dissipates to be replaced by a gentle malt smell. Robust palate with a distinct toffee flavour; not overly hoppy with a medium bitter finish. Pretty good.
