Loads os sweet black tea in the aroma. Deep orange, small spongy off-white head. Some tobacco too. A touch minerally retronasals, some marmite, some spice, some sourness. Dry, almost astringent bitterness. Finish dry. An odd one, not bad, but a bit watery.

Fin (9797) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 11, 2012
Cask handpump at The Lamb, Farnham, Saturday 10th March 2012 Possibly the beer in the most spankingly good condition of the day. Pours a sort of copper colour amazing clarity. Ok its really just a nice session strength beer, little furry on tongue, steady bitterness, clean with a little dryness at the end, but itís very good. A7 A5 T7 P3 Ov14 3.6

JorgeLee (1856) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 6, 2012
Cask at the Coach and Horses W1. A typical english bitter, good session beer, deep copper/brown colour, malty flavour, less hop, finish perhaps unremarkable. Quite malty for SN, not having the typical hop/spicy house style for me.
