2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask @ Devonshire Cat, Sheffield 021112
Amber, clear, bubbly thin white head
Aroma - only getting touch of minerals initially then some dry zest
Taste - bitter zesty hops, maybe lemon zest. Light pale caramel malt background, more bitterness than fruitiness, minerals cramping the zest, not really a fan of this
Palate - very soft carb, thinnish body, quite oily. Considerably bitter finish, zesty and herbal with some bitter minerals
Overall - Not a fan of this, finish too bitter

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at Live and Let Live, Cambridge. Clear golden brown pour with a big bubbly head and broken lace. Weak aroma with occasional floral hints, leading to a massively hoppy bitter flavour with palate hugging spicy bitterness. Some lingering liqourice notes too. A superbly refreshing beer.
