3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask Conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Pale yellow amber with bubbly head. Uncomprimisingly hoppy, dry but refreshing too, light on the tongue but leaving a green hop note. Sharp and juicy, a rather pleasant lunchtime pint

UPDATED: APR 11, 2013 Cask conditioned - OGs Wellingborough. Hazy golden beer which does clear. There are some fruity-hoppy notes to the aroma and the taste is very hoppy and sharp. A nice enough beer but not moreish or quenching.Score 3.1
Subsequent ratings scored 3.4, 3.7 and 3.1. Average becomes 3.3

There is a rather off-putting sweaty sock edge in the aroma, but, once you get over that, I found this a drinkable but uninspiring session bitter. The name must contravene the Trades Descriptions Act as the hop accents were muted at best. Not properly conditioned in my view, so it needs another tasting. Cask (gravity) Battersea Beer Festival

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: SEP 8, 2010 Feb, 2004 Gravity @ The Bummer Beer Festival. Pale malt slightly greasy aroma, some old socks, varnish and the vaguest hint of possibly a rumour of some citric hops. Taste is foul! Metallic and rough. Some earthy hops, but way too rough to be drunk. Dreadful. I’ve thrown my rattle out of the cot so many times now, people are moving away from me in droves. [1.5]
Aug, 2010 JDW, Rochester. Very drinkable. Fresh hoppiness - nettles and tree bark. Bitter, but not rough or aggressive. Mild, juicy malt. Good combination. Yes! [4.4]

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask Conditioned, at the Battersea Beer Festival, 2004.
Clear pale gold coloured body with a sulphurous aroma. Not the full blown Scottish egg aroma that I love some much at the GBBF but nice enough to appreciate. Good bitter hop flavour strong bitter finish. I like it and Chris concurs but SilkT has thrown his toys b/c the rates are drying up and because he doesn’t feel complete without his hat. Mate, I hope for all our sakes that Chrissie finds it.

Relatively flat looking amber ale, with a plain and weakly hopped aroma. The flavour is also basically hopped. Overall a very basic pale ale.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Has a fresh, zesty aroma. This is a thin, easy drinking session beer. The highlight is the almost chalk dry finish that demands another gulp (or two).
