3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at The Railway Tavern, Richmond. Nice to catch up with this one - had many a pint of this at university. Dark amber orange, clear, still, small off-white head. Aroma is sweet malt syrup and toffee. Body is medium to light, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is resinous, gluey, bready and dry. A very nice well balanced bitter that carries a lot of good memories for me. But objectively it’s nothing too special.

Copper color with slight brown milky head. Not much aroma. Toasty malt. Easy drinking but could use more structure. Worth a pint but would not go for a second

Cask @ Hop Poles, Hammersmith. Well, at least this wasn’t as bad as Brains IPA. The pour’s amber with a small head. The nose is of caramel, some apricot fruit, some nut. The taste is more caramel, leather. A bit of of shortbread. More apricot, red apple. Slightly husky. The body’s light, the carbonation fine. Overall, OK.
