3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at the Assembly Rooms, Solihull. Poured a slightly hazy medium amber with a bubbly white head. The aroma is malt, light hop. The flavour is moderate bitter with a light, slightly watery hop bitter, light medicinal palate. Light bodied with soft carbonation. Not the best bitter I have ever tasted. Probably coming to the end of the barrel.

Cask conditioned handpump Criterion Leicester 29/04/14. A dark gold coloured beer with a white head and lace. Fruity and yeasty. Don;t like the bready malts mixed with the yeast here - they don’t gel well. Not for me,

Cask conditioned at The Old Fox, Birmingham. Brown amber with white head. Particularly smooth bitter with quite a bonfire, smoky note in the malt giving a certain richness, fairly restrained on hops and there is a sweet saccharine note (Cheers for that Derrick). Certainly quite unusual.
