Clear hazelnut brown with a small white head. Tobacco, nutmeg, wood, dried flowers, grain, poultry. Medium body, oily texture, near flat carbonation, medium sweet and bitter. Long light dry finish with wooden/tobacco notes. A bit strange flavourwise and I cant decide what to think.

jamesakadamingo (4) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2013 does not count
A good tasty session beer served with a strong head leaving a nice lace down the glass. Amber and clear in colour with a strong start and slightly sulphurous bite afterwards. Slight cameral notes. An all round great bitter ale.

DandyLion (518) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 30, 2013
Cask @ The Cradock, Leicester. A traditional bitter. Not overly exciting. As you'd expect a nice round mouthfeel, eminently drinkable beer. Nice enough. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
