3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask, with Traci and Fin at the Turf Tavern, Oxford. Warm copper, a bit of white head. Sulfur, nettle, a little lemon sweetness. Grapefruit flavor, fresh and fruity without being particularly bitter. Fresh, light palate, very refreshing. As much as I tend not to like the Burton sulfur nose, it’s not overbearing here.

Cask at the Turf Tavern, Oxford 10-07-08 in the company of Casey and Traci Some sulphour on the nose, a nice tangy fruitiness in the mouth, nice lemonyness, dries towards end. This has less bitterness than the Burton Bridge Moss Boss also had at the Turf tonight. Its quite tasty and pleasant.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cask handpull at County Hotel, JDW, Ashford. Gold, with slight haze, thin lasting off white head. Aroma of sherberty grapefruit hop. Citrusy flavours in the mouth, reminds me a bit of Oakham JHB. Right up my alley. I wonder if it has Mount Hood hops in? A little watery in mouth, but the hops are excellent. Good beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Clouded gold with slight head. Fairly standard golden ale, dry and hoppy, light lager crossover with a touch more interest. Reasonable bitter finish, but it didn’t persuade the lager drinkers on our table to change.
