Cask@St Albans Beer Festival. Undeveloped malt and bootpolish in the aroma, boiled vegetables, horrible.

chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2005
Cask (gravity dispense), St Albans Beer Festival 2005 (last day). Sweaty sock aroma. Not much hop presence. Dryish finish but generally soft mouthfeel. No backbone. I doubt this is how it was intended to turn out. Very dull, but I didnít find it as offensive as the others.

maeib (8585) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2005
Cask conditioned - gravity dispense - St Albans BF. A copper coloured beer with a bad farty aroma. The taste is old and fusty with tainted fruit skins. Some reasonable maltiness in the aftertaste, but also some sulphur. Poor.

SilkTork (5163) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2005
St Albans. Gravity. Old clothes aroma. Rum & chocolate. Soft. Low hop. Old. Interesting. Not what it was meant to be, but certainly what it ended up being. I shall not be making a repeat visit to the St Albans festival, thatís for sure.

harrisoni (13217) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2005
Cask (gravity dispense), St Albans Beer Festival 2005. Now, normally one of my favourite breweries, so I donít know if this was just a bad barrel or what. The only note I made was "virtually undrinkable"

imdownthepub (9961) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2005
Cask Conditioned at The Cwellyn Arms, Rhyd Ddu, Gwynedd, Wales. Pale gold with thin head. Dry caramel toffee flavour, quite unusual fo a golden ale. Dry, bitter finish. A trange wooden pump clip to this one, it was hard to tell who made it. Probably be a collectors piece in years to come.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - SEP 21, 2003
Cask Conditioned, at the Wenlock Arms, London.
Golden like the sun with a fine lacy white head. This beer has some bite to it. The bitter length certainly is a challenge. The first quarter of the beer goes down easily enough but progressively get harder and harder. Sort of like those crazy tracker pull racers you see on bazaar sports programmes. Do you know what I mean?
