Theydon_Bois (21516) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - FEB 5, 2014
Cask at the Claude Du Vall, Camberley, 01/02/14. Lightly hazed copper with a moderately appointed light beige covering. Nose is stoned fruit, biscuit, earthy, nutty, bready malt. Taste comprises bitter orange, bread dough, earthy, toffee. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, bitter pangs in a semi drying closure. Drinkable but not much in the way of depth or character.

Cask at Three Judges. It pours clear darkest brown with a thick tan head. The aroma is toasted brown bread, coffee grounds, cacao nibs, malt loaf, wood and light charry/ashy note.
