Cask at the Alma, London, Oktoberfest Beer Festival. Pours clear, rich gold with a filmy head. Malt, caramel and cracker aroma. Sweet flavor with bread and earthy bitterness. Light to medium in body with average carbonation. Finishes with great balance, having some bready malts and fine, earthy hops. An overall mellow character. Nice.

(Cask at Southampton Arms, Kentish Town, London, 8 Aug 2010) Golden amber colour with frothy, off-white head. Fruity, hoppy nose with notes of citrus, dried apricots and fresh floral hops. Fruity, hoppy taste with citrus, biscuity malt and generous doses of fresh floral hops in the finish. Rather thin on the malt side, but with a generous hop character. Balanced sweetness.
