2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask conditioned handpump Craft Beer Co N1 London 15/02/13. A golden beer with a white bubbly head. A bit sickly sweet to be honest. Honeyed notes. Not my thing. A bit of a struggle, and unpleasant to my palate.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Sourced St Pancrass. Hazy orange body with puffed up head. Nose is citrus, honey, oranges. Taste is also fruits, malts, some caramel, hops. But then gets quite spicy and sharp in the finish. Less balanced than I would have hoped for.

Pepper, pear drops and pine needles. Alliterative beer, how poetic. Brad’s in goal. Football can be poetic, but not this game. I’m a geek. Two beer night, tonight. Bish knows what’s next...

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hand pulled at the Pear Tree, Kings Heath, Birmingham. Strikes me as a classic pale ale. Bitter, slightly pithy. Fresh and crisp dans le gob. Easy to drink, with hops reminiscent of UK stylee.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Pours a cloudy yellowish straw colour with a thin glass hugging head. The aroma is quite amazing. It’s fruity with a gorgeous chewy toffee nose. The flavour is ever so slightly sour with pine needles. This is a super refreshing beer and another classic from Beer Geek.
