Cask, gravity dispensed, at the Back of Beyond (JDW), Reading. Golden amber with a ring of translucent head; floral aroma; soft and fruity in the mouth, with apples and pear flavours; then some warmth and a sustained, gentle, earthy, bitterness to finish. Not bad.

jjsint (3493) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2016
Handpull cask at the Elm Tree. Dark gold or honey brown. Take your pick. Not quite clear. Smells of TCP and fresh grass. Taste is sweet and herbal with notes of bay and caramel. Smooth finish. Good but odd. More odd than good.
