Dark amber with a light red tint amd a lasting white lacy head. Smells like sweet malt, strong ripe fruit plum, peach, with a bit of roast. Medium silky smooth body thin. Taste of sweet malt, caramel, plum, light roast malt and a bit of alcohol. A cracking pint

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at the Hope Tap (JDW), Reading. Golden amber with a thin dense white head; aroma of apricot; heavy syrupy texture but with a relatively light grainy malt flavour and some fruit; then gently bitter and deceptively drinkable with no sign of the alcohol. I was expecting more of a bruiser in the style of Hobgoblin, but this was much more refined.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cask at The Tyburn. Pours rich amber with a filmy, off-white head. Easy malt nose with some caramel hints. Fairly sweet flavor, with some grape fruitiness, light toffee malts, some booze, and very faint bitterness. Medium in body with fine carbonation. Some more caramel in the aftertaste, with light, syrupy sweetness, more alcohol and mild bread. Plenty of lingerin grape notes, too. Not bad overall. Could use some work, though.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask, handpull at The Standing Order JDW, Edinburgh, with Craig, Stella & Kids, Jan, Charlotte & Loz, 30.10.10 Crikey this is so much better than the bottle version, less sweet and cloying not as podgy a much better beer all round. I still get the warmth from the alcohol but it seems to suit this rather well, rich and tangy with some good fruitiness. This is actually a fairly decent beer from Wychwood, it’s just a shame that I was trying this alongside the Titanic New York Wheat Porter. A6 A4 T7 P4 Ov13 3.4
