Fin (9684) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2013
Bottle from Bellingers Garage, Grove, Near Wantage, Oxon purchased and consumed at home 28.08.12 Pours chestnut, good clarity with off-white head. A little nutty, some bitterness, earthy with just a little citrus maybe. Soft in the mouth a little plappy as Loz would call it, I think that I think lacks a little freshness. Fine.

Malty ale with a sweet finish. Toffee is the most evident flavour, but not overstated.
