2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2009 Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Bright coppery gold with very little aroma, possibly malty. Slightly stale cardboard and metal taste. Hoppy and bitter but not appealing. 29.12.09 Same location. Some dusty citrus in the aroma. Banal watery taste. Some bitterness. Disappointing after the rather bombastic name and pumpclip that looks like an official seal of some sort. Rated:5,3,4,3,9:2.4

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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask in the counting house. Aroma is caramel malt, floural and grassy faint wiffs of sulphur salts. Taste is the same very drinkable however perhaps lacking in bittering hop.
