Cask half-pint on 23rd Sep 2016 at the Shrewsbury CAMRA beer festival. Red hue to this brown/dark amber bodied beer, beige head. Malty molasses rule the aroma and flavours, caramel sweetness with a toffee apple like taste, some hedgerow fruits in the mix too. Liked it, my sweet tooth picking up the maltiness and smoothness of the brew. minutemat (5938) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 22, 2016

Cask (gravity dispense) at the Bricklayers Arms Yorkshire Beer Festival, 25 February 2010. Looks nice - red with a loose but lasting light beige head and very good condition. Butterscotch aroma. Also some doughy malt. Better on the palate but still a hint of butterscotch. Otherwise tart berry fruit. Fairly sharp mouthfeel but diacetyl lingers and rather spoils things.

Cask conditioned at Coventry Beer Fest ’12. Dark brown with cream head. There is a rich malty body, decent roasty, bready notes, some sourness, yeastiness, sour plum hints. Old Ale is a good characterisation for this, smoothed with a boiled caramel flavour. Reasonable.
