imdownthepub (10460) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2012
Cask conditioned at Moreton in Marsh Beer Fest ’12. Tawny red with white head. Something a little different here, certainly pretty sweet and fruity, plummy, damsons followed by a sharpish twang, like a slightly corked red wine, this adds to the beer rather than detracts. Decent.

Theydon_Bois (9084) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2012
Cask at the Sussex Arms, Twickenham Green - 15/12/12. Lightly hazed dark amber with a thin off white head that retains as a small film and largely at the edge of the glass. Nose is caramel, dark fruits, vanilla, toffee fudge. Taste follows, a touch more fruity than the nose. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, bitter sweet finish. A most decent bitter.
