[662-20070923] Cask @ Prince of Wales (Didcot, OX; called "Belhaven Original Smooth & Creamy"). Burnt toffee and sweet pickled leafy cabbage aroma. Clear, brown amber body with a small bubbly off-white head. Mild grainy base flavour has a very nice sweet aftertaste. Medium body is slightly grainy. Very interesting aroma and aftertaste, drinkable; seems in good condition.

My previous experience with Belhaven hasn’t left me with an impression of a brewery I prefer, far from, so I must admit I was a bit negative, when I opened this ale. But now I must admit, that this beer is a nice one. The head is beautiful, the color is nice and so is the aroma. The flavour starts with many notes of fruit and hop, the bitterness is moderate in the beginning, but it rises and lasts quite a while. Just before the end I sense notes of licorice and roasted malt.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cask at Old Bank, 24.02.07.
Clear copper colour, perhaps with a hint of haziness, and a tiny, bubbly white head.
Sweetish fruity aroma with grassy, earthy hops.
Very mild strawberry-like flavor with a slightly bitter finish. Malt and hops i bitterish fruity aftertaste.
Absolutely no carbonation, light to medium body, dry mouthfeel.
Bit too watery, even for a real ale.

Real ale at Angleterre, Helsinki. Tastes damn good and big, very hoppy and bitter but not too dry. As always with real ales, this one hasn’t got any carbonation (altho there is a small bubbly head) but the taste is good.
