2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Served on cask into a Green King pint glass at the Wheatsheaf, Frimley Green (A GK tied house) Jan ’12.
Red to mid brown in colour with a small white head that was retained throughout drinking.
No real strong smells coming out of the glass other that a sweetish malt aroma.
Not the most exciting of beers in taste. Malt flavour, little bitterness, no hop notes present, a slightly sweet taste in the mouth with a slightly sour aftertaste, very subtle in this respect though!
Mouthfeel was OK - watery without real body or substance, but I’ve had worse in this respect.
Had that standard GK flavour!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask - The Murderers, Norwich. A deep chestnut brown coloured beer that poured with a fine, lacing bright white head with good retention. Tangy red fruit, caramel, a bit of boiled maltiness and touches of yeast on the nose with a delicate metallic note coming through at the back. Biscuit malts to the fore on the tongue with red fruits & a subtle hop & toasty, dryish bitterness. Lingering tang & biscuit finish. Light to medium body, soft mouthfeel. Doesn’t take my breath away but it’s fine; I can’t complain. A shame the biscuit character decreases working down the glass. The malts are OK and there’s some yeastiness in there too which suits it.
