Chelmsford Beer Festival. Cask. Light haze on this gold beer, a few pale cream colour bubbles. Palate is light and smooth, modest fine carbonation. Smooth sweetish malts, a touch of honey. Mild marmalade and a little lemon. Some sweet floralness. Light spice. Light dry finish. A dry but pretty drinkable golden. This ain’t an English Strong.

Medium sweet flavorbwith bready malts, some apricot and nectarine, dough, English yeast, faint leafy hops, orange peel. Medium bodied with fine carbonation; OK condition.

Cask (gravity dispense). Beer #14 at Bedford Beer Festival 2005. A copper coloured beer with the emphasis on nutty malt. Some smoky notes and lots of toffee. Powerful fruity malt flavour, with caramel and some chocolate nuances. Reminded me of Caramac chocolate bar (do they still make that). Well made to the style. I just prefer a touch more bitterness to balance things out.

Cask gravity at White Cliffs BF 2011. Very deep ruby colour with lasting beige head. Looks in good condition. Smells herby. Settles down a bit into a solid dark ale. Ends up ok with some raspberry and dark fruits. It got better.

Cask (White Horse, Parson’s Green)
Initial fleshy fruity aroma, nice sweet maltiness too. Smooth palate, sweetish. Luscious, even - so moreish. Great fruity hop aromatics in the mouth, and leaves a gentle bitter bite too. Classic pale ale, I could session this happily.

imdownthepub (15334) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 11, 2008
Cask conditioned at Banbury Beer Fest ’08. Copper gold with white head. Full with a strong alcohol note, heavy body with a slight roasted background. There is a dry fruitiness, almost apricot in the beer, as is usual with Milton beers, really well brewed to deliver the hop notes which were dry and spicy. Not bad at all.

3.6
Fin (10917) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2008
Cask conditioned at Banbury Beer Festival 09-05-08 Pours warm gold with a tiny thin white head, warming sweet honey flavours, spicy hops this is really rather nice although it can be just a tad cloying at times, still an impressive beer and reminds me just a little of Oakham.
