3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask handpull at The Flute, Liverpool. Copper coloured with lasting white head. Still a very good session beer. Enough flavour to keep you coming back for more, without being overwhelming. Good minerality. Some caramel, some hop, some yeast. Always found it hard to pin down Bass. Bit of sweetness, bit of lemon citrus. Or was that the girl’s perfume?

Pint at the Drffryn Arms in the Gwaun Valley (Pembrokeshire NP, Wales) - a pub like no other! Gravity fed into a jug before being served in the pint glass. Was certainly well kept and the late night pint was an experience.

Had cask conditioned at the Goose Oxford 07-04-06. Long while since I’d had a pint of this so I thought I would reaquaint myself. Amber coloured beer, sweet to start with but then a slight bitterness kicks in, some hops. A good beer but has been surpassed in the flavour stakes by a lot of the new kids on the block.

Nice malty but bitter taste. Color is a amber golden. Beer has nice feel on the taste buds with equal amounts of malt and hops.
