2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask - copper/amber with a thin off white head. Aroma of orange, light roasted malts and grassy hops. Taste if of grass, caramel and treacle with a little pear and hints of flowers. Medium to thin body, low carbonation, syrupy thin body. Didn’t really quaff this ale.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask (handpump) at the Boat, Lenton, Nottingham on 14 July 2012. All I could extract from the landlady was that this is "specially made" (don’t they always say that?) for the pub by a mystery brewery in the West Midlands and the brewing location is a "closely guarded secret". I suspect it is a rebadge of Banks’s Bitter but I have no definitive proof. Amber / bronze colour. Thin white head. Sweetish. OK but wouldn’t be my first choice of quaffing ale.
