3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at the Crosse Key, JDW. Clear, yellow-gold pour with a foamy, white head. Boring malt aroma with hints of citrus and hay. Pretty sweet flavor with pleasant dough and light, grassy bitterness. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Finishes sweet and there are subtle notes of lemon here. More dough and sugar, faint hay. Easy drinking.

Cask conditioned at a wetherspoons. Hazed gold with slight head. This started off with an odd perfumed note, a mix between butterscotch and boiled sweets. A little on the tart side, flowery, drinkable although not greatly enjoyable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
The Larry, Nuneaton Lemon squeezed on thistle and oak aroma. Thick oatmeal-and-slate Scottish mouthfeel, TCP dabs, oak, lemon, traces of sappy hop, oak again. Soft, dunked biscuit afters without a dab of butter. Not a note out of place. Could kill this in some quantity. Negligible but in good nick and very pleasant.
