Scopey (8552) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2013
Bottle at Chriso’s Pre-GBBF Shindig 2013. It pours clear amber with a thick off-white head. The nose is wood, toast, varnish, earth, caramel and dried fruit. The taste is wood, caramel, earth, leather and mild sourness with a dry finish. Light-medium body and moderate carbonation. a bit watery. Mediocre at best....

ianwelby (705) - SCOTLAND - APR 27, 2013
Clear copper pint with a thick creamy head. Not much aroma at all. Nut and malt taste and it’s an almost creamy beer. Not special bit I could drink it at a push.

Theydon_Bois (12178) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2013
Cask at the Sussex Arms, Twickenham Green, 07/04/13. Hazed dark amber with a thin off white head. Nose is malt, vegetal, buttery/diacetyl, light caramel. Taste comprises mild fruit, fart, touch toffee, indescernable flavours of general rancidity. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, dry in the finish. I’ve had 3 out of 5 from this brewery all twiggy nonsense meets vegetable soup. MEH !!!

Cask conditioned at Far From the Madding Crowd, Oxford. Brown to amber with white head. Full malty fruity beer, nicely bitter, bread-crust with a robust peachy edge. Plenty of depth and length on the palate. Pretty good.
