Cask conditioned at The Chequers, Oxford. Amber to brown with white head. This felt like quite a simple bitter style beer to me, smoothish malty notes with a hint of strawberry on the palate. There is a touch of sweetness, simple leafy hop notes. Quite pleasant. maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2013
Cask conditioned handpump White Horse London 02/12/13. An amber rather than ruby coloured beer with a whitish head and a little lace. House yeast aplenty with oaky notes. A malty beer over the hops. Good body and lingering flavours. Decent enough and more importantly likeable. ManVsBeer (10675) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 7, 2013

Cask. Really attractive ruby pour with a decent lasting creamy head. Very fruity aroma, somewhat woody. Spice, fruit, malts in the taste. Heavy, satisfying ale-like finish. Excellent winter bitter. allmyvinyl (10723) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 5, 2013
Cask at The Haymarket. Pours clear copper, decent white head. Good spicy and vanilla aromas, some herbal notes. Taste is malty and sweet and Christmas-sy. Rich for the strength. Good stuff. AshtonMcCobb (6693) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 5, 2013
On cask at the Haymarket.
Appearance - a very dark honey colour with a nice head.
Nose - lovely enticing grass and pine. Possibly going into rosemary or lavender.
Taste - lovely malt and hops bitterness coming through at the same time. Some lemon and grassy notes with a dry cereal finish.
Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a dry refreshing finish.
Overall - good beer from a great regional brewer. cgarvieuk (24800) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 2, 2013
