3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask conditioned handpump Moon On The Square Northampton 10/04/13. A dark ruby coloured beer with a whitish head and lacing. A quite complex fruity yet bitter beer. An interesting melange of flavours and a long finish. Hard to pinpoint specifics but this is a great attempt at a British ale by a Russian brewer. Some red fruits for good measure in the nose. A nice strong beer.

Crosse Keys Spoons. Very hazy dark amber beer, small pale tan head. Palate is softish and smooth with super fine carbonation. Medium malt, touch of toffee. Fairly bitter hops with a touch of citrus. Long bitter finish. Not bad but it lack something to bring it all together.

Cask, Corn Exchange, Leicester. Amber, red brown with an off white foam. Aromas are mixed winter berries with woody notes and lots of mixed spices. Toasted malts with herbal liquorice hints and apple. Flavours are lemon and blackberries with herbs and light gritty cocoa. Roasted with spritzy yeast on the palate. Dry on the finish with earthy, nutty notes. Nice.

Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Chestnut with cream head. Rich maltiness, full and fruity with a light wine type character then hints of grapefruit and strawberry from a very tasty hop. Really very pleasant and drinkable.

Deep red-brown with thin off-white head. Clean pine and honey nose with a citrus hop tang, slightly syrupy palate almost instantly turns to toasted malt balanced by fruit and hop notes, then a dry burnt marmalade finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hand-pulled pint in my local Wetherspoons on 8 Apr 2013.
Deep amber body leaning towards ruby in the dimly lite area I was sitting: on top a full head foaming biege coloured head, good lacing too.
Fruity, floral aroma with a malty overtone.
Malty at first with a fruit flavoured middle, slightly bitter hop and dry finish. Strange brew really, a good mix of tastes but not too balanced. Too dry in the mouth for my taste buds but others may rave about it.
Body depth was fine and overall it was OK, but Iíll not be having another one.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask at Willow Walk, Ldn Victoria. It pours clear deep amber with a medium beige head. The nose is earth, wood, light farmyard, leather and faint jamminess. The taste is earth, leather, dark fruit, spice, very savoury, varnish, decent bitterness and a touch of alcohol with a dry finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. Ok, but the alcohol is too prevalent.
