Nice malty taste and gently smoked. A decent change but nothing on the german smoked beers. They dont go far enough here.

Cask Pint at Wibbas Down (JDW), Wimbledon, London in April 2014 - Deep Amber Red in colour. Good head. Good lacing. Malty; mildly roasty malts, relatively subtle smoke, faint hint of smoked ham, caramel. Fruity; mild berry fruit, hint of citrus. Syrupy. Hoppy; grassy hops. Sweet smoky malty fruity throughout. Dry smoky finish. Liked it. Very drinkable. (2014-04-12)

Taste comprises smoked malts, biscuit crumble, toffee, light spice, fruit loaf. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, semi drying close. Decent well balanced smoked affair.

Draft. Woody toffee malt and light hay aroma. Copper with small head. Mildly sweet toffee malt and lightly bitter tannin and dry oak flavor. Okay body. Decent - woody but no smokiness.

1/2 at the Tilley Stone Gateshead. Clear tawny orange body, thick off white head. Mild burnt sugar and medicinal fruit aroma. Smoke flavour is subtle, more beech than oak. I enjoyed the mouth feel which was fuller than I expected. Very well balanced, smoke not over assertive which is no bad thing. I was impressed.

Cask conditioned handpump Penderels Oak London 09/04/14. A reddy brown coloured beer with a tight white head. Berry fruity in the nose which follows through to the mouth where it meets the rather good smoked malts. It needs more body and more smoke to be honest but I do like it.

Cask at the Hope Tap (JDW), Reading. Deep amber with a moderate off-white head. Yes! Smokey from the off; nice bonfire night smoke rather than the weird pepperoni of your Schlenkerlas. Lots of fruitiness behind too, Im thinking homemade apple and rhubarb crumble eaten after a warming jacket potato cooked on a bonfire. Crisp autumn leaves too in the mildly dry finish, and a little chilli. This is Autumn in a glass. Shame its at a Spring beer festival, but loved it nevertheless. Yes!

Cask by hand-pump at Counting House, Glasgow (belated festival ale) - clear amber brown, good creamy beige head, smoked malty aroma, irregular lacing, malty, creamy, slight smokiness, well balanced, excellent carbonation
