imdownthepub (13389) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 19, 2013
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Brown with off white head. Malt lead wishy washy bitter, thin on the palate, there is a hint of earthy hop, not New Zealand to me, more fungal than that. Disappointing.

Cask conditioned handpump White Swan London 08/11/13. A mid to dark brown coloured beer with a whitish head and lace. An odd aroma with some fusty fruit whereas there’s a little sweetish hoppiness in the mouth. Late rye sweetness. Tasty enough but a bit wiffy.

Cask at The Monks Retreat in Reading. This beer promised much.. a rye base with NZ hops. The rye base is solid, good and biscuity but the hops are awol.
