2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pint at Spoons Gateshead I/C Mal. We couldn’t decide whether it was off, or supposed to taste like that. After a few mouthfuls, we came to the conclusion that it was supposed to taste like that, and neither of us liked it. I was getting some unpleasant chemical solvent type flavour. Needs work,

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at JDW. Light copper with a frothy beige head. Fruity, floral nose with some faint metallic notes, but they don’t really interfere. Sticky, buttery toffee malts combined with lots of marmalade makes for a decent taste profile. Palate is creamy but a bit watery. Fairly good effort.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask @ a JDW pub. Pours deep mahogany with a thick creamy white head. The nose is light sugared plums, some strawberry, light wood and caramel. The taste plays it pretty straight as an ESB. Light orchard fruits, strawberry and plums. Some shoe polish and caramel malts. Light tobacco. Not in perfect nick. Medium body. Light dry finish. Overall, OK.
