3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
cask @ The Eagle and Child, Oxford. Copper in colour with well balanced aromas of earthy and floral hops, light malt, and just a touch of fruit. In the mouth, the lightly tangy hops play well against the delicate yet focused malt profile. Moderately bitter, and light bodied without being overly thin. Thirst quenching.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
[CASK: The Conservative Club, Didcot, Oxfordshire 01/07/06] Being from Oxfordshire originally, I though I may be bias to local brews... howecer after trying this pint I was not overly impressed. It was OK, just nothing too special, especially nothing to shout about. Quite weak and mild and not very exciting.
