3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled (from AbM). Amber colour, mediumsized beige head, that leaves some lace. Aroma is floral notes along with a quite strong caramel and bready maltiness to it. Flavour is very nicely malty along with a quite strong floral and a bit citric hopping. Very pleasant, especially as it warms up a few degrees from being fridge cold.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask, gravity at The Grapes, Sunday 1st December 2013 whilst watching Mabel Gubbins (Morris Rapper side) and their entourage of 6-7 other sides dance in this and other pubs. Dark amber in colour with off-white head, fruity, hoppy bitter, good clarity, looks good, but we had one of the last pours of this as it was very near the end. Tasty and my favourite of the day, that said it was a little warm and clearly not quite as fresh as when Glen had it on Friday, still held up well though. A6 A5 T7 P4 Ov13 3.5
