Tasting notes from Norman Knight (2004). Amber-brown with thin head. Sweet malt and biscuit aroma notes. Fruity malts with balancing citrus flavours. Dry finish. Nice, but prefer the "toad" for a session.

Cask conditioned and handpulled at the Brunswick, Derby. Looks like I got the rogue barrel, then; barnyard aroma, salty taste. Not promising.
