imdownthepub (15334) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 24, 2010
Bottle conditioned, 330ml aged 5 yrs. Dark chestnut to ruby with cream head. Initially I thought this was a sour, there is an appley, cidery note, however this smooths down to a still fruity, malty beer. Not obviously a stout as there is a sweet caramel background, but still pretty decent.
