On tap at Café Gaspar. Dry plum or fig aroma. Malty flavor, a little bit balsamic and some nutty hints. Soft acidity is the counterpoint, makes the ballance and give a refreshing end. Good.

Crosse Keys Spoons. Light haze on this tawny amber beer, small bubbly pale cream coloured head. Palate is dry with fine carbonation. Dry malt. Light spicy ester. Bitter twangy dry hops, well buried. Finishes dry. Too dry and one dimensional.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask conditioned handpump Stick Or Twist Leeds 14/04/14. A dark brown coloured beer with a russet hue and an off-white head and lace. Pleasant fruity hops and slightly toasty malts throughout. A nice body. The darker malts blend nicely and it’s not too sweet. It’s not brimming with flavour but it’s pleasantly drinkable.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask at the Back of Beyond (JDW), Reading. Red with a small white head. Toffee then an earthy bitterness. Dull and unimaginative; quite astonished something so boring came out of Adnams given how good they’ve been in recent years. Meh, possibly heading towards bleagh.

Good looking beer with nice head retention and lacing. However, up on tasting this beer it makes me feel like a passive smoker sat by a dirty ash tray.
