Cask ½ pint at The Crispin, Wokingham, on October 16, 2017.
Right now a right bitch to search for, since ratebeer serach is messing up and the brewry has too many beers under its page to view. Finally using variants of "Advanced Search" managed.
Malty, a tad toasted, some alcohol taste. Grainy, biscuit, a bit fruity aftertaste. Medium mouthfeel, medium though fairly dry bitterness. Clear dark brown color, tan head with lacing. Malty, grainy, some alcohol scent.

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.
