0.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 1/20
[Cask as Cains Cask Lager at GBBF 2005] A hazy pale yellow beer with a white head. The aroma is soury grassy, while the flavor is a sweet and sour mixture with some malty notes. I don’t like it.

Cask at Bon Accord, Glasgow. Deep golden. Sweet with buttery malt and medium body. Soft and sugary with well structured malt and low bitterness. Well made, but too sweet.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Cask at GBBF 2005. Gold colour, creamy head from using a tight sparkler on the dispense, some fruit and sherbert but got some fairy liquid flavours with odd fruit. Bizarre and disappointing as the rest of the Cains range is pretty good

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Cask at a Wetherspoons. Pale gold with short lived head. Really not sure about this, sweet grainy beer with a thin sweaty flavour. Like lemon fairy liqued. Sugary finish.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Cask conditioned - handpump - GBBF 2005. Apparently this was £3 a pint - bloody hell. A straw coloured beer with a nice white head. The aroma is soapy and watery with a little bit of grass. It also smells ’cold’. The taste is quite watery and lemony. Thin and soapy, wet and woolly - enough said.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask (handpump) GBBF, August 2005. Cains must have spent a fair amount of dosh on advertising hype for this beer. For me, at least, the reality was rather more mundane. Gold colour. Right sparkler. High carbonation. Soft and sweetish. That’s about it for me. Not very interesting.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A Mes rate:
Cask at Baker Street ’Spoons. Standard blonde looks with a pretty poor film of little bubbles. Slight diacetyl in the aroma but it’s jst about hidden by some mellow hoppage. Not too great in the flavour department. Raspberry, dusty tobacco and something distinctly rice pudding about it. Very soapy note makes me wince when I drink it. Dusty finish just about saves the day. Not great.
