hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 6, 2009
UPDATED: MAR 18, 2010 Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Copper with a small white head. Aroma has some faint ash and hint of chocolate malt. Rather a rough malty taste with a mid bitter finish. 18.3.10 Cask at Bankers Draft (JDW), Bedford. Same as above, except of a clothy, elastoplast background that seems to be a hallmark of ’Spoons, plus an aftertaste of monkey nuts. Enough said. Rating: 4,4,4,3,9:2.4

From cask at Guildfort Arms. Pours clear and golden deep orange to hazzlenut brown. Aroma is mild roasted malty. Light acidic flavour to a roasted malty flavour that goes towards breadish. Smooth malty and slight bitterness into the finish.
