2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tasted this in The Esquire House, Glasgow (JDW) in June 2010. Cask, handpump dispense. Crystal clear pale copper in colour with a thin white head. Short aroma of thin crisp apple. Thin mouthfeel and poor lacing. Thin pale malt base gives digestive biscuit with dried raisin fruit. Thin bodied aftertaste is dry and metallic. Tang of hop resins continue into the dry bitter finish with oak wood tanins. An ok session bitter but nothing exceptional.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask (gravity dispense) at Wandsworth Common Beer Festival @ Le Gothique on 25 March 2011. Amber colour. No head to speak of. Quite fruity and rather sweet. Hop presence in the flavour is quite modest. Soft mouthfeel. Nothing particularly wrong with it but too sweet and short of bite for my taste - could do with pepping up a bit.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
[Cask at the Back of Beyond] Light amber, moderate white head, slight fizz (superb condition - well done Wetherspoons!). Apple and caramel at first followed by a tasty spiciness. Straw and earth come through in a moderately bitter finish that is well balanced against the sweet start. Decent bitter - although obviously very variable in both quality and flavour based on earlier reviews!
