3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hand pulled at the Anchor, Birmingham, during their Archers weekend. Orange bitter, with a nice roughly fluffed head. Good citric bitterness - full flavoured and quenching, with a nice length finish. Hoppy, prickly fruit mouthfeel. Strong and nice - a notch above the crowd and easily the best Archers beer of the night.

Cask Conditioned, at the Wenlock Arms, London.
Amber with a speckled beige head. Deep hoppy aroma. Smooth malts settling into deep green, sour, hops finish. [This beer was just called Maypole, and at 4.5%, served in May, but looks similar enough].

Cask, Dog & Bone, Gillingham.
Huge floral citric aroma. Bold citric rush in the flavour with a juicy orange base. Good, clean and refreshing. Damn fine ale.
