3.82/5  rDev +12.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

pint served in dimpled mug on cask at the Old Bell Tavern in London on April 18, 2018

L: dark brown/purplish amber with lackluster head of beige foam, not much more than a full cap

S: roasty, almost burnt or charred wood, lots of roasted malt character

T: same as nose with more char-wood flavor, very close to burnt, plenty bitter

F: solid, perhaps a bit on the flat side but still full of the good cask ale feel of a soft center inside a crispy outer layer

O: a very good brew and worth trying; at 3.8% ABV, it's a solid choice to change up a session of pints

2.57/5  rDev -24.2%
look: 2.75 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Hand-pulled half-pint in 'Far From The Madding Crowd' Oxford on 23rd Nov 13.

No head on my dark brown pour (wasn't in the greatest condition to be fair).

Malts lead the way with this session ale, slight chocolate feel to both the nose and taste but generally pretty tasteless and forgettable. I might be being unkind because I nearly took it back as it was obviously on it's last legs.

Fairly smooth for a Bitter with very little actual hop bitterness, or there wasn't at the end of the barrel my half came from.
