4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask at the Swan and Rushes, Leicester. Really good beer. Like a golden ale in bitter coloure clothing. Fruity, light, fragrant and delicious range of hop notes. Some sour tang, some American style pine. Good. Good. Good. Drinkable. Good.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask handpull at Wetherspoons, Folkestone. Copper colour with lasting off white head. Aroma of strong grapefruit and hop. Very hoppy for a UK bitter, more like an APA, with glittering floral hop on finish. Some American hops I guess from the amount of grapefruit. Malts show moderate juiciness with just enough balance to carry the hops. Man, what an APA at the end of a long week. Lovely and tingly on the finish. Good grapefruit. Barman? Another one of these please.

Cask, Moon Under Water, Watford. Nice copper colour with white head. Hoppy smell, with a slightly mellow bitterness matched with some sweet malt flavours. Aftertaste isn’t that strong, but is pleasant.

Cask at the Old Salutation, Nottingham. Although it is enjoyably hoppy, this somewhat embarrassingly named beer is very pleasingly balanced with fruity sweet malt and juicy, citrus-flavoured hops. I thought it was a very good bitter indeed.

One of my rare cask entries.Tried at the magnificent Philharmonic in Liverpool with my son Adam prior to seeing our football team Birmingham City
robbed. How apt that its a bitter because thats how we both felt. Lovely smooth hops with some fruitiness and a citrus aftertaste. An excellent beer that does not cheat like some Liverpool players. Yes I am bitter and yes this is highly recommended.

Cask (gravity dispense) at GBBF, August 2005. Mid copper colour. Quite hoppy aroma, with pine and grapefruit. Softer on the palate but still plenty of grapefruit. Nicely bitter finish. Definite US influence here.

A Mes rate:
Cask at the Pembury. Copper colour. Very fresh and hoppy, specifically fresh cut grass. Aromatic, flowery and citric, its all about the hops apart from a very polite nod towards the malt. Good bitter finish. Quite liked it.

Cask conditioned @ Giddy Bridge (JDW), Soton. Fruity zesty hops with some gentle malt sweetness apparent. Pretty tasty but slightly lacking in the finish. Seems to be screaming for a full on bitter finish rather than the mild bitterness on display.
