Almost clear deep amber beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is light and fairly minerally crisp. Unsweet caramel malts, slightly nutty too. Bitterish dried fruits. There is a slight aged taste to this beer yet the palate is fresh and crisp. Light dry finish, modest bitter linger. Slightly left field.

Theydon_Bois (18196) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2012
Cask at the Sussex Arms, Twickenham Green - 15/12/12. Lightly hazed dark amber with a thin off white head that retains as a small film and largely at the edge of the glass. Nose is caramel, dark fruits, vanilla, toffee fudge. Taste follows, a touch more fruity than the nose. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, bitter sweet finish. A most decent bitter.

imdownthepub (13833) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2012
Cask conditioned at Moreton in Marsh Beer Fest 12. Tawny red with white head. Something a little different here, certainly pretty sweet and fruity, plummy, damsons followed by a sharpish twang, like a slightly corked red wine, this adds to the beer rather than detracts. Decent.
