1.1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
a very strange aroma that almost puts one off drinking it at all. odd, slightly chalky texture, with a weird chemical taste. maybe it just doesn’t travel well, but on the evidence so far I won’t be heading to Totnes to try it again

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On cask at the Albert Inn, Totnes, Devon.
Appearance - golden with a decent head.
Nose - biscuit malt, floral.
Taste - more biscuits. A bit of red fruit creeping in. Initially thought redcurrants, now looking like cherry stone.
Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry finish.
Overall - an old style English Bitter. This totally grew on me.

Burnley Beer Festival. Golden with a small head and lots of biscuit malts in its character. There’s also a fair smack of cherry in its aroma and flavour.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On gravity at the Portcullis, Bristol 10/12/09. A solid session amber session beer with a slight, off-white head. Aroma of biscuity malts, red fruit and a hint of earthy hop. Flavour started with some sweet malts, more fruit and a decent, bitter finish. Ok.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask@Nottingham Beer Festival, 2008. Amber beer with a chlorine aroma, and a mildy toffee and weakly hopped flavour. Overall a very disappointing beer due to the aroma.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask conditioned at The Albert Inn, Totnes, Devon. Amber with white head. What a pleasant surprise, this is an archetypical quaffing bitter, just doing it slightly better. Biscuity dry malt with a floral, pleasingly standard tea like hop. The locals had suggested that the brewer hadn’t quite got his beer right yet, well on this evidence, he has.
