Pours a clear amber color, topped with a small and quickly dissapearing off-white head. Malty aroma, mild caramel and biscuity notes, some resin also. Taste is sweet and biscuity, mild bitterness in the finish. Herbal/metallic feel in the aftertaste. A bit watery, but not bad.

Bottle. My first from this brewery.Bronze with a small head.Slightly spicy with some fruitiness but stops short of being too complex. A bit more body would have increased the impact but it was still a pleasant beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark-ish amber with a sweet malty nose. There’s some biscuit there, a little smokiness which adds up to a quite distinctive beer. Finish is long and bitter. Reminds me somewhat of Purity’s Mad Goose.

Cask at the Elm Tree, Cambridge. Copper/amber, clear with not so much head. Chestnut, spruce, tangerine and gingerbread in the nose. Bittersweet refreshing taste with a sweet gingersnap finish and aftertaste. Weak palette is a letdown. Decent.

Cask gravity at the Watford RFC beer fest. Nice rich red amber coloured pour with a lasting loose white head. Aroma is subdued caramel with lemon citrus and berry hop. Touch of grass. Flavour is composed of caramel, biscuit and a touch of toffee malts and good clean English yeast ferment. Hops are earthy grass, berry and touch of citrus. Medium easy going palate with fine carbonation. Decent condition. Tasty ale.

On tap at a pub in the Oxford area called Eight Bells. Smell of candy, perfume, light hops and fruits. Similar taste. The perfume aroma is not my kind of thing.
