Cask conditioned handpump Far From The Madding Crowd Oxford. An orange gold coloured beer with hardly any head. A decent sticky orangey hoppy beer. A bit of sweet toffee malt to balance. A good body and a pretty nice beer.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask at Leicester Beer Festival 2012. Clear amber with no head. No noticeable aroma, slight bitter hops but really not much to this. Short finish. A bit watery. A bit ordinary when compared with many of the other beers I tried at the festival. Probably a decent session beer.
