imdownthepub (15526) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 13, 2018
Cask conditioned at The Castle Tavern, Oxford. Amber with white head. There is an earthy, baked bread character to the mid roasted malt, a hint of caramel but not over done. Fruity hops come through with a forest berry note, then a fungal hint. Pretty reasonable beer.

Nice 2/3 in the arbitrager. An unexciting drop but pleasant. Consistent, well balanced, malty and sweet.

Cask at Lyric. It pours clear deep amber with a foamy beige head. The nose is soft, sweet caramel, juicy, wood, brown bread and some orange peel. The taste is bitter-sweet, woody, earth, resin, leather, caramel, pepper and pithy citrus with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Pretty quaffable. Another solid beer from these guys.

The Lyric. Cask. Lightly hazy amber beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is light and semi dry, modest fine carbonation. Malts are light with a little creamy toffee. Hops are mildly spicy with touches of pine and citrus. Light semi dry finish brings mild esters. Pretty serviceable amber, reasonably well balanced.

Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close peppered with earthy hop bitterness. Solid hoppy amber.
