Bottled. Amber with a decent, off-white head. Sweetish, cereal malts, hedgerow hops, apricot fruits and a bitter finish. Fine.
(cask) clear amber colour with a frothy off-white head. aroma of buttered grainy pale malts and honey, with a light hint of straw, some powdered sugar and canned peaches. flavour is mostly bran flakes, caramel and yoghurt, with a touch of banana peel and a light sweetness. light- to medium-bodied with soft carbonation. johninmelb (1127) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 11, 2013
Medium toasted malt nose with some honey and some earth. Pours copper with a quickly dissipating head. The flavour is pleasant enough - some honeycomb and some bitter spruce notes, although not a lot of hop comes through. Finish is dry with some clove, some more spruce and un underpinning cereal malt. Let down by the mouthfeel - far too carbonated.
