kwik-lime (1747) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2016
Cask at the Antelope, Surbiton. Fairly malty for the style with caramel and vanilla, but balanced by some grassy hop and citrus. Very drinkable, nice beer.

imdownthepub (13557) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2016
Cask conditioned at The University Club, Oxford. Gold with white head. The beer is fairly thin with a light caramelisation and some sweetness. Little in the way of hops for me, perhaps a light fruity note but Roostars seem to be much more frugal with their hops of late. Nowt special.
