3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Half-pint, gravity poured at the 2013 Birmingham CAMRA beer festival.
Dark amber/copper in colour with a good off-white frothy head.
Malts lead the way in both the nose and mouth: semi-sweet malty molasses vie with fruity hops throughout, but the malts win every time.
Makes a nice chance from blonde bitters called ’golden’ and tasting of toilet duck.

Cask at JDW Bishop Vesey; brown pour with a velvety off white head, butterscotch this beer is wrong couldn’t finish it. I’m sorry this brewery has craft branding without any beer to back it up.

Copper with a thick, lasting, frothy, lacy, creamy off-white head. Smells of caramel, malt, hops, and a citrus freshness. Medium frothy creamy body. Tastes of hops, caramel, malt and orange citrus. Nice and easy to drink.

Cask at CBC Islington - London. Pours clear, amber-gold with a fine, frothy white head. Some lightly toasted, doughy bread in the nose. Light to medium sweet flavor, further lightly doughy, lightly toasted brown bread, mild ripe orange, some leafy bitterness. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Very good condition. Balanced finish, simple but tasty, lingering doughy brown bread sweetness, low bitterness. Good.

Cask conditioned at The Craft Beer Co. Islington, London. Copper with white head. Sweet malty beer, bready, baked malts with a hint of tin. Earthy a hint of fungus. A slightly strange one.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(cask) Amber to brown colour, clear, small fizzy white head with fair lacing. Moderate maltiness, mainly toasted and nutty. Light herbal and resin hoppy notes. Light nitterness, short finish. Light body, a little watery, with soft carbonation. Subtle, not especially remarkable or unique, but certainly not bad either.
