11th April 2013
Crosse Keys Spoons. Clear deep amber beer, little pale cream coloured head. Smooth palate, fine carbonation. Nice malt, a little caramel toffee and cream. Mildly bitter orange fruits. Semi dry finish. Really not bad at all. Well balanced and drinkable.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask at the Hamilton Hall, JDW, London. You just do NOT pass up an Irish Ale tick. Pours clear, dark copper with a thick, off-white froth head. Toasty bread in the nose with tangy berries. Light to medium sweet flavor, ripe fruits, berries, bitter earth and leather, hints of cinnamon. Light nodied with fine carbonation. Bitter cherry pits to finish, earth, burnt leaves, leathery fruits. Comes across as just a little to bitter and slightly astringent in the end.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Dark amber with cream head. A bit of a composite rating this as the first pint I had was fruity smooth then the very next was musty earthy, not sure how that could happen within 10 minutes. Malt led beer, no following hop note, but reasonable enough.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask @ JDW Elgin 
Reddish copper, lear, dense off white head, good colour
Aroma of soft fruity caramel malts, soft sweet malts, touch of berry fruits
Taste of caramel malts, hint of toasted malts, touch of yeast, soft berry fruits, bitter English hops, fresh cask
Palate - Medium body, smooth texture. Finish as main flavour, lingering soft bitter finish, very very slight salty, digestive biscuits linger (I did try the beer again 2 days later prob same cask, the biscuits had gone in the linger and the finish was more bitter astringent)
Overall - This was a pretty decent brown bitter - however, 2 days later the beer was more bitter astringent and would score around 2.8.

On cask at Old Swan (JDW), Uttoxeter. Pours red brown with a stiff white head. Looks the part, not much going on for a red. Not unpleasant but not interesting either. Disappointing as I like red Irish ales usually.
