Handpulled cask at the Falcon, Clapham.
Amber with a white head. Fruity and pleasently bitter for strength. Not what it was back in Henley days but a much better effort than Burtonwood made.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a clear coppor colour with no carbonation and little head.
It has a very bitter and dry smell to it, not the most alluring.
Taste is also a bit different and not really to my liking.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
[Cask at The Royal Oak, Ruscombe, Twyford] Amber with small white head. Aroma and intial taste dominated by sulphur and minerals - like spring water at a Victorian spa resort. If health farms sold beer, this might be what it tasted like! After a while you think you’re used to the sulphur, and start to sink into the welcoming arms of the underlying light, relaxing maltiness, with a little wood and a well-balanced bitterness. But then every now and then (eg if you burp) that sulphurous tang comes back to haunt you. It’s quite reminiscent of some of the Marstons beers (eg Pedigree) and I think given a few more beers you could get used to it and rather enjoy this distinctive brew. But on the basis of having tried just one pint, I was quite happy to order a different beer in the subsequent round.
