3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2006 Currently brewed at Burtonwood, of course, although the rebuilt Brakspear plant should be back online before too long. Despite being transplanted from its spiritual home, this is still a perfectly respectable copper coloured supping bitter with an intense bitter hop attack, but a hint of fruit and malt to compensate. Very dry finish. Handpump, Uxbridge Arms, Notting Hill Gate, London. (3.0)
RE-RATE. August 2006, handpump at The Colonies, Westminster. The return to Oxfordshire seems to have pepped this beer up and this was a lovely pint of "ordinary" bitter in cracking condition. Lots of fruit, bags of bitterness, soft underlying malt and just a hint of "Burton snatch" type sulphur on the nose. A very welcome surprise.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask at the The Crabtree, Frimley. 20/06/16. Dark amber with a lovely creamy head. However thatís the best of it. Zero aroma - only got points as it wasnít minging. Zero taste as well. Sweet with the vaguest hint of bitterness. But the texture matches its appearance - creamy. Looka nice but completely uninteresting.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask at king and queen fitzrovia. Slightly hazy copper amber, still, creamy white head ensures, some decent lacing. Aroma is sweet, toffeeish. Body is medium, slightly foamy, low carbonation. Taste is thin, some vegetable - peas and cauliflower, watery, a little dry, light bitterness. Below average, thin. Ok over a half but I donít think I could session it.

Medium hoppy aroma. Again not overpowering. But a well rounded fruity hoppy taste. Notes of honey. Very drinkable.

Cask at Toby Carvery, Bedford. Golden brown, a good show of white head. A bit of floral hop in the nose, along with a biscuit malt. Very basic. Taste is bitter with some hop in the finish. Medium to long hoppy aftertaste. Not bad, drinkable enough but nothing special by any stretch.
