3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask, handpump, The Hop Pole, Aylesbury, Bucks’ 15th November 2011. Pours bronze in colour with hardly a head of note. There is a simple middling bitterness, but you know overall I find this just a little drab and it failed to hit the mark with me, one of those that would be described as a Boring Brown Bitter (BBB) A6 A3 T6 P3 Ov12 3.0

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A Mes rate. Cask handpull at the Junction Tavern.
Orange amber colour with no head. Caramel and sulphur dominate. Slightly sourness. Very poor condition. Seriously, if the brewers knew what these guys did to their beer, they probably wouldn’t send anything to the Junction.

Cask at GBBF 2006. A pale orange-brown beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is quite light - what is there is sweet with notes of caramel. The flavor is sweet malty with light notes of caramel and hops, leading to a slighlty bitter end.
