3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at wetherspoons. Pours a slightly hazy amber with a thin loose head. Aroma is lemon and a little pineapple. Light body, watery. It's green apple, a touch of pineapple, a bit of pear, some citrus at the end. Nicely bitter. Despite it being a bit wet its still pretty tasty. OK.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hand-pulled pint into a UK pint sleeve in my local Wetherspoons on 8 Aug 2013.
Good looking beer: full on amber with a red hue, on top a deep covering of white foam.
The nose was both fruity and floral hops, with a malty undertone.
The taste also a mixed bag of flavours, with the malts being stronger on the tongue than in the aroma. The malts give a sweetness that the hops try to prevent and this produces an interesting blend of flavours of dark berries and biscuit notes.

Cask conditioned handpump Moon On The Square Northampton. A copper coloured beer with a loose but large white head. An odd beer with a fruity malty aroma with grapefruit and crisp apple notes. A little strange but drinkable enough.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask (Angleterre, Helsinki)
Orange brown, slightly non-clear. Sweet dark fruit, ginger and malt aroma. Very complex taste, everything from the aroma, but with masses of hops - very clean and crisp and full bodied, well balanced. Very similar to Thomas Sykes, but at only 5%.
