This beer turned up in my local Spoon’s early Jan 2013: I had a hand-pulled pint on the 9th. UK straight sleeve glass: mid-amber in looks with a thin white head which left more lacing than it seemed capable of.
More malts than hops in the nose and taste: dry overall though and always leaning towards a slightly bitter feel to the mouthfeel and semi-malty flavours. More complex than it looked and smelt like, almost interesting.

Cask conditioned at far From the Madding Crowd, Oxford. Amber with white head. Pleasant light session type bitter, just right for the warm evening, biscuity malt with a leafy dry hop note, enjoyed this.

Cask (gravity dispense) at Ealing Beer Festival, July 2009. Amber colour. Decent condition. Dry, drinkable and pleasant. A workmanlike bitter that does its job pretty well in a fairly unobtrusive manner.
