4.0% Cask gravity at Planet Thanet BF 2015. Reddish brown clear beer no head. Getting to the end of the barrel in terms of condition but the flavour us fine. A little appley to start then orchard fruity malt flavour. Some hop on finish. Not very bitter pretty flat condition. Would have scored higher in better touch.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pint at the Old Manor in Bracknell. Creamy, bubbly head over a dark red beer. Very smooth, dry aftertaste, floral hops, but disappointing. Creamy light chocolate aroma, but very faint. Wouldn’t bother with it again.

Bronze in colour and maintains a good head, but has very little character elsewhere.

2.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at Blue Boar, Billericay. Pours a chestnut brown with an amber edge and a gentle off-white head. Aroma is very subtle, slightly floral and malty but very faint. It runs rather nicely over the palate however. Tropical fruit flavours shine then collapse quickly into a dry coarse bitterness which also doesn’t hang around for long. The merest of aftertastes leaves you pondering what it actually tasted like and so draws you in to another sip. A firework of a beer that flares, fades, then leaves you wondering whether it was really there in the first place.

Cask, The Larry, Nuneaton, 25/02/12. Cherry red with copper edges under a slim cream top. Sour berry tang aroma. Same taste; aged, acetic, Tunes-like, plain wrong. Bitter afters from nowhere. Hay and faint biscuit. Yuck.

Cask at the Wetherspoons on Victoria Station. Copper coloured with a tight beige head; red fruit aroma; smooth and soft with a rich fruity toffee flavour with lots of depth from deeply roasted malts; the finish is dry with some spicy hops. Very drinkable.
