UPDATED: SEP 8, 2017 Malty bready caramel and nutty flavour. Mild on palate but definite bite. Strength deceptive. Nice one. Earthy hints.

Cask at the Happy Man Autumn BF, Englefield Green, 11/10/13 - last birthday rate! Lightly hazed reddish amber with a thin off white covering. Nose is bready malts, fruit tang, biscuit. Taste comprises much the same good malt backbone plenty of toffee, less fruit apparent. Medium bodied with soft carbonation, subtle bitterness in the closure. Decent enough bitter.
