3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at the Old Coffee House. Eyebrows were raised when I ordered a beer called pink pride in a soho whilst wearing a pink shirt....It pours hazy pale gold with a medium white head. The nose is sweet raspberry, candy floss, jam, candy, Parma violets and strawberry. The taste is bitter-sweet, fruity tartness, raspberry pips, pink grapefruit, lemon peel, straw, mild astringency and fruit acid with a very dry finish. Light-medium body and soft carbonation. The big bitterness evens out the fruit. Bit of a disconnection between nose and taste. Pretty decent stuff though.

Cask (William IV, RBESG2011 Saturday)
Rather silly raspberry beer. It starts off right from the outset as being a limp beer, and the raspberry just makes it sillier. However, I’m proud to have raised a glass. Next time make a macho themed beer instead please?

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at William IV, London, during RBESG 2011. Pours grapefruit pink with a white head. Sweet berry aroma. Light sweet flavor, faint tart berries. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Mild sweet finish, a bit more semi-tart berries. Could do with a bit more sugar. Just a touch bland, but pretty nice.

Cask at Dean Swift. Clear bright pink, quick diminishing white head. Funky and unpleasant vegetal rhubarb aroma - taste follows, more rhubarb, less paper. Acidic, slick mouthfeel, tart aftertaste. Not a fan
