Pigs Ear. Wooden Cask. Pretty much a clear amber beer, few pale cream coloured bubbles, not really making it as a head. Light semi dry palate with mild fine carbonation. Generic fruits. A touch of spice and mellow vanilla-wood. Little orange marmalade before the semi dry finish. Well this is really rather nice! Nice contrast between the vanilla and marmalade.

Cask conditioned at Far From the Madding Crowd, Oxford. Amber with white head. Malty fruitiness with a rich tannin, tea like character, rather like a tea chest. There is a dry flowery note, lasting on the palate, old paper, pretty decent.
