500ml bottle that was a present from someone and I should have drunk ages ago, but never got around to it. Rich deep amber with lasting beige head. Its kept very well considering it’s over a year old and the malts are good, some decent English hops on the end. A very passable bitter. I rather like it and I bet it would be good on handpull fresh.

imdownthepub (14553) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2008
Cask conditioned at The Pilchard Inn, Burgh Island, Devon. Gold to amber with white head. Smooth malty beer, light and quaffable in this idyllic pub overlooking a beautiful beach. Some roasty notes with a fruity orange background. Good stuff indeed.

Rune (12765) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 9, 2017
500ml bottle shared with Finn at Tuckers Maltings Taphouse. Clear copper coloured body. Patchy layer, fragile lacing. Doughy aroma with citric hints. Bread, toffee and red fruity impact to the flavour character. Slightly jam-like. Dry, bittersweet finish. Smooth. Decent version of the style (Newton Abbot 27.04.2017).

leaparsons (10546) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2012
Bottle. Golden brown with a very large foam. Aromas are yeasty with stewed apple and weetabix. Bready with light lemon and some wheat. Flavours are earthy, ripe apple with pear and toffee. Yeasty with citrus on the finish. OK.

Fin (10541) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 2, 2007
BCA picked up from the brewery 30-12-06 in a mixed case, and had this back at home after a New Year spent in Devon. Copper in colour very fresh and fruity tasting beer, good bitterness aqnd a jolly decent beer all things considered.

Quack-Duck (9484) - Down South, GERMANY - AUG 31, 2011
bottle from Trumps, Sidmouth. Golden colour, lovely hop aroma. Malty base, the hop profile is brilliant: fresh, slightly resiny with a citrusy touch. Smooth palate. Anytime again.
Earlier Rating: 7/31/2007 Total Score: 3.4
bottle, bought at the brewery. Copper colour, tiny head. Low carbonation. Aroma of roasted malt. Flavours of roasted malt, quite fruity. Hoppy finish.
