imdownthepub (15332) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2014
Cask conditioned at Brackley Beer Festival ’14. Very dark brown with off white head. A fruity beer with blackberry and port wine like flavours then a light caramel background. It did very well to survive this Festival where many others didn’t.
