Amber-brown. Bubbly, loose cask head. Very earthy caramelly nose. Rich earthy taste, only a shade thin but it just makes it more drinkable. SarkyNorthener (4562) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 22, 2013

Cask at The Eight Bells, Chipping Campden, Glos’, 06.08.10 Pours chestnut in colour, touch of haze but otherwise in pretty good nick, decent head atop. Aroma was fruity, touch earthy and malty.

A Mes rate: cask at the New Oxford.asheft (3062) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 8, 2009
Amber brown with a thin creamy off white head. Some earth, lots of thick creamy malt, faint fruity hops in the finish. Boring but inoffensive.
[cask @ RBESG 2009]
Toasted toffee/caramel aroma with a tiny bit of hops. Hazy chestnut appearance with a lasting, lacy, white cover. Nice, very nutty toffee flavour with very gentle floral hops and moderate bitterness. Light to medium body, low carbonation, clean, if a bit nutty, finish.
