Cask-conditioned at the Staffordshire Beer festival, Seven Stars, Bristol 6/10/10. Amber coloured with a slight, off-white head. Slightly sweet, malty flavour with some citrus and apricot fruit. Flavour had more fruitiness and earthy malts, before a pleasantly bitter finish. Drinkable.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours out a deep gold, yeasty, malty nose, real old fashioned style bitter, bready, yeasty, earthy body with slight mushroomy flavour that if it was anymore pronouced would be unpleasant but just about gets away with. The body is clean & light with a delicate dry finish. Nothing spectacular but a solid enough quaffer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at the Hole In The Wall, Southsea, UK on 16th October 2009. Amber with very small whitish head which quickly dissipates to leave a ring of foam round the edge. Strong malt aromas - biscuit/cookie notes before a kick featuring hop strongly shrouded in maltiness with a bitter sweet finish on a smooth, slightly creamy mouthfeel. Pleasant pint.

dark yellow tasty grapefruity bit fruity as well. Hmm I was expecting more bitterness by name but maybe I had tasted too many double IPA:s recently.

Cask (Kitty’s, Helsinki) - thanks barlady!
Orange, hazy irregular head. Fruity and horse-stable aroma. Sharp gingery bite in the taste. Very bitter, but not unpleasant.

Handpulled cask at JDW Watford. Pretty bland with no Burton snatch at all! I expected a more interesting beer from this brewery having visited their tap a few years ago and enjoyed what I tried there.
