This is a seasonal ale, only available through July on cask. I stumbled across it at a small country pub called The Boars Head in the little village of Aust just a mile or so from the Severn Bridge.

The hops used are challenger, fuggles and goldings, and the malts are pale and crystal. The twist with this seasonal brew is the addition of oats.

A - The colour is a medium ruby red, with a white creamy head, there is a good level of lacing all the way through the pint.

S - There is a clear maltiness to the aroma, which has floral characteristics pushing through.

T - The initial taste comes through sweet on the palette, with a slight hint of toffee. Towards the end there is a mildly bitter aftertaste, with light floral flavours.

M - Quite a heavy feeling ale, which provides a light oily touch.

D - Overall it is a good summer beer, the floral flavours along with the initial more sweet hit, provides a complex mouthful.
