3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask, gravity at Merton Winter Beer Festival, 17th & 18th February 2012 Dark brown with a touch of reddy glint and a small white head of dancing bubbles atop. Smokier than I was expecting with the smokiness in both mouth and on the nose. Dry, malty and the hops also showing, enjoyable stuff. A7 A4 T7 P4 Ov14 3.6

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask at The Hope, Carshalton. It pours deep brown, with a thin off-white head. The nose is smoke, smoked ham, Bisto gravy, and starch. The taste is roasted malt, touch of smoke, charcoal and caramel, with a very dry finish. Thin body and soft carbonation. Too thin and dry, tough to drink much of.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Gravity cask at the Merton BF 2012. Dark red/ brown with an off white head. Smoke is very evident in the aroma and flavour. A little caramel and dry fresh UK hops in the finish. Better than some rauchbiers I’ve tried in Franconia. Surprisingly good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask conditioned at Merton Beer Fest ’12. Dark brown with white head. There is certainly a smoky, bonfire note to the aroma, this follows into the beer, dryish, some caramel and fruit. Pretty reasonable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask (CWAF2012, Friday)
Dark brown, loose head. Very gentle smoke aroma, mellow. Smokiness also in the taste, and with a loverly full bready roast backing it up. Anna and I agree, the smoke is this is basically perfect. There are bigger ones, but they enter the realm of being big smokey beers, this remains wonderfully in the realm of mellow.
