Cask at Cloisters, EIBF 2012. Nice dark yellowy amber, thin creamy head. Nice resinous nose, not "hoppy" but juicy in a different way. Some salted caramel, apricot, some marmalade, grassy hops. Dry juicy flavours, citrus, some marmalade, soft bitter linger. Soft and easy, very nice.

A surprisingly balanced and not too heavily bitter pale amber. Some pine resin and citrus pith on the nose. Gentle carbonation, very drinkable.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask @ The White Horse. Deep red amber color with a small white head. The nose is light orchard fruits - peaches, cherries, nectarines, cut grass. The taste is tobacco leaf bitter, more peachy orchard fruits. Chalky bitterness. The body is light and smooth. Overall, while crisp, I really didnít find this all that flavorful. Bristol are better than this!

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask in White Horse. Light clear copper colour, small white head, not much lacing. Nose is zingy citrous hop, pine, caramel. Taste is sharp pine, hop bitter, and then notes of an English bitter, so lots of caramel, ale fruitiness. Not sure the combo is working. Itís a bit watery in body to carry the new world hop bitterness.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at Pigís Ears Richmond, poured a dark copper with a lacy white head, piney hops and some lemon rind on the nose, the palate is hoppy, bitter and a little acrid, but not overly so. Thereís a touch of pineappley hop in the mouth plus a long astringent bitter finish. Nice, but a bit lacking in depth.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at the Euston Tap, London. Pours clear, vibrant gold with a medium, frothy white foam head. Toasty dough in the nose with subtle orange. Light to medium sweet, quite doughy with hints of butter, pine, grass, faint citrus. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Light sweet finish, some faintly tangy citrus, light toast, light toasted grass. Itís OK. The diacetyl character fades as I drink. But still, the overall character is actually a bit wimpy and the beer is kind of a let-down.

Cask at Cask Pub and Kitchen, Pimlico, London. An amber coloured pour with a medium off white head on top. Hoppy, citrus fruit aroma. Tastes hoppy, malty, citrus fruit, bitter. The bitterness was overpowering for me, not really my thing.
