3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask - The Rumsey Wells, Norwich. Dark yellow with a small, lasting white head and an initial haze that soon settled. Nice malty nose with floral, sherbety hop aromas. Grassy hop flavour profile and some sweetness to balance. A rounded mouthfeel, soft carbonation and light-medium body. Thirst quenching and satisfying.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pale blond bitter, no head. Aroma is of citrusy hops . Has a sharp, refreshing edge and then a dry, bitter hop flavour. Very good and very refreshing.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask, March Hare, Cheadle. Unispiring averageness really. Certainly not a bad beer but nothing grabs you by the knackers. Gold with thick white head. Aroma is cardboard packaging on something mildly spicy and fruity. Flavour is more cardboard with medicinal and herby notes. A little watery, bitter finish.

Pale yellow color, small white head, some lace. Dish water lemony aroma. Grassy, a bit herbal flavor. Uninspiring.

A Mes rate: cask at the March Hare in Cheadle Hulme.
Glorious clean bright gold with a good white head. Slightly sweet on the nose but with lots of cardboard and with some strong vegetable notes. The aroma is pretty awful to be honest. Thankfully the flavour is better. Just. Decent enough malty base with a slight biscuity character plus a fairly unexpected hit of hops. I mean there are actually detectable. But that’s about it. Faintly bitter finish with some more cardboard. Dull but not offensive other than the aroma.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2014 Cask conditioned - handpump - Queens Arms Orlingbury A golden beer with a whitish head. A lovely beer with excellent hops throughout the nose and the mouth. Great marmalade flavours. Did not think these were Chinook and Columbus, seemed more English. Lovely flavours though and a treat to drink, even though it was vastly sparkled. Score 3.7
Subsequent ratings scored 3.1, 3.1, 3.8 and 2.8. Average becomes 3.3

Much more impressed with this than the bottled version. This beer didnt agree with pasteurisation. Yellow blonde. Uplifting floral hop aroma and flavours with lightly spiced caramel.
