2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear amber color, small white head. Hops, which smell like a glue, in the nose. Flavor has toffee, apples and then some fruity hops in the finish. Fruity mess, a bit odd flavor for a bitter.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
[On gravity cask at beer festival at The Retreat, Reading] Mid brown coloured. Deep malty, yeasty, earthy, almost eggy homebrew flavours which somehow made me feel slightly ill and reminded me of Wells Bombadier. Really didnít enjoy this one, but I can see that some might.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Well, I thought this was excellent - just what you look for in a session bitter: amber colour with a small white head, buttery malt and sweetness in the aroma. Rounded malty taste with a hint of refreshing fruitiness. Just the right amount of bitterness for lunchtime. Top beer; my third from Bushys and Iíve liked them all. I donít object to the cartoon fox in this case as heís riding a motorbike and thus is clearly sober.

Gallas. This was clearly comign to the death and the manager insulted me for asking for the sparkler to be removed. Aroma had what i thought was peppermint and fruity notes, then i realised it smelt of mold. Taste was similar, i had to small drinks of it then left.
