3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask (gravity dispense) at Reading Beer Festival, day 2, on 1 May 2009. Orange colour. Quite strong chalky hop character. A touch of fruit. Firm mouthfeel. New hop variety for me. Not necessarily the most assertive. Clean, fresh and easy-drinking.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Gravicask at Macclesfield BF. Do not be tempted to go, it’s rubbish. I’m tempted to go just to punch the staff. Nearly all the beer has been ruined. Amber gold with no head. Citrus, medium bitter finish. Kept in awful condition by complete cockweasels.

Cask conditioned handpump Vin IV Leicester A light amber coloured beer with a nice fruity berry filled aroma. In the mouth there are more fruits together with biscuit flavours. Interesting and tasty.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Dark gold with a small white head. Rather rough wet dog malt in the aroma. Refreshing earthy malt taste. Perhaps a little apple sourness. Mid bitter finished. Unadorned beer, really rather effective.
