Light chestnut in colour which puts it into the ’brown beer’ category. As far as flavour goes, it tends rather more towards the malt than the hops, though there is a pleasing hop taste right at the finish. The aroma is light and pleasant.

Cask at Alfred Free House, Upper Hale, 16/03/17. Vague malty aroma. Light chestnut. Thin white head, with 50% coverage. Light bitter. A kinda lemon-melon sourness. Malty. Medium bodied. Pleasant soft carbonation. Slightly astringent finish. Nice. ’Soft’ is the key word. However I would have never pegged it as a brown! Drops a point.

Cask at Derehams Inn beer festival, High Wycombe. Amber with a small white head. Caramel with maybe a little baked apple. On the sweet side. Not a lot else. Sweet and bland really. Bowman are normally better than this.
