Cask, ’The Joy of Six’ Merchantfest ’08, Rugby. Swigs of Octo’s, to be precise. Yeah, barnyard, mouldering fruit and dessicated frog. Ruby with rapidly diminishing head. Intriguing interplay of beansprout/mushroom earthiness and (strawberryish) hop fruit way back in the mix. A hint of roast, maybe chocolate. ’Interesting’.

O Post GBBF tasting. Amber colour, beige head. Aroma is strange sweet notes I can’t lay my finger on, apricot, some mild grass and caramel. Flavour is a bit sour, some hops and nectary sweetness.
From cask at Guildford Arms. Pours clear and deep amber golden with a deep reddish glare. Aroma is fruity and mild acidic to citric. Flavour too is quite citric yet with a solid roasted note. Smooth malty and roasted finish. tbw2008 (14) - Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2009
