Bottle split at the Waterfront Inn, Shanklin IOW during the Jolly Dat 24/08/14. Clear golden with moderate off white spotting and edgework. Nose is on the thin side, corn bread, cereals, pale malt, grain. The taste picks up the pace a little with light vanilla, faint hops, biscuit, mellow fruits. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with light bitterings. Ok bitter.

harrisoni (18436) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2006
Cask at GBBF 2006. Copper colour with bubbly beige head. Good floral hop and yeast aroma. OK bitter. Goodish hop on end. Some caramel. In fact I rather like the hop on this and a good start to the Thursday session.

Draught (Angleterre)
Lovely dry black tea aroma. Some earthy bitterness. Very well attenuated palate, but a little watery. dry earthy hops, quite thin. Carbonation low. Well made and easily drinkable, but a bot watery for me.
