Cask conditioned at The Purple Turtle, Reading, Berks. Copper with white head. This is a malt lead beer, quite nutty, some caramel, some bitterness. Pleasant roasty notes, reasonably smooth. It’s fine.

Cask at William Morris, Hammersmith as ’Hogs Back Rip Snorter’, 5%. Got an accidental pint of this one. Mahogany brown, clear, still, small dense foamy tan head, thick lacing. Aroma is bready, glue. Body is medium, smooth, soft carbonation. Taste is resin, glue, burnt toffee, polish and crystallised sugars. More resin and apple peel in the finish, with a honey linger. Assertive traditional hop character. A pleasant slow-drinker with strong flavours.

wonderful fruity and hoppy aroma... nice caramel taste with apple and plum shades... mild hopping and dry bitter aftertaste...
