2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at the Drill Inn. Pours a cloudy amber colour. Not too much to say. Standard UK bitter really. Almost tastes like mushrooms! Actually didn’t think it was that bad.

Draught at Toby Carvery in Keighley. Pale gold pour with a small, lasting head. Very little aroma. Nice smooth, typical bitter. Not exciting, but not bad.

Cask Bidford - yellowish amber with white head which maintains good lacing throughout. No carbonation, smooth in mouth and on tongue. Only weak aroma - slightly bitter taste which lasts. Ok - another easily drinkable bitter.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at the Free Press, Cambridge. Copper, clear with a flimsy cream head and mega-lacing. Plentiful carbonation though. One-dimensional but by no means disappointing smell: malt, malt and more malt. The sturdy sweetness of the malt asserts in the sip, with plenty of buttering hop near the end. Bitter finish is fairly long. Some caramel, toast, hazelnut, rubbing alcohol in the aftertaste. Well above the average bitter.

7th July 2015: hand-pulled cask pint in the Kings Heath Cricket Club, Birmingham. Smooth feel to the brew, deep amber body, creamy head that stayed around. Nice blend of flavours: fruity, malty and semi-sweet in the mouth, the aroma hinting of what is to come. The hops come into play towards the end of each sip giving a mildly dry and slightly bitter.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at the Woodmans Rest, Solihull. Poured a clear medium amber with a frothy white head and lots of clingy lace. The aroma is malt, light hop. The flavour is medium to light bitter with a light, slightly watery malt, strong hop bitter palate and a lingering bitter finish. Medium to light bodied with soft carbonation. Not so keen on the hop combo here.

Cask in some working mens club, Stockport, Greater Manchester. Clear darkish gold with a thick creamy white head. Malty aroma and floral hops. Taste is pretty much the same. Not offensive just boring.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAY 21, 2014 Light amber beer, light-medium carbonation. A little oily on the palate. Nice caramel maltiness, followed by crisp citrus and peppery hops. Bit of a wierd doughy, buttery finish.
