3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask conditioned at The Junction Tavern, Kentish Town, Gt London. Reddy brown with slight cream head. Sweet malty beer with a metallic edge, cloying and really not worth the £3:40 they charged. Dull.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
First tasted this in Coanes, Johnstone in April 1993. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear dark amber red in colour with a tight creamy off white head. Strong lingering aroma of creamy butterscotch and vine fruit. Thick creamy mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt complex gives a robust malt flavour with shortbread base, laden with strong fruit flavours of dark plum and syrupy dates. Sweetness continues with golden syrup and brown sugar. Spicy hop resins combine well with the sweet malt to give a drier oak wood aftertaste. Finish is long and smooth with lingering caramel notes to round things off. A cracking old fashioned style session ale and is up there with Merman as my joint favourites in the extensive old & new Caley portfolios.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask at The Muckle Cross, Elgin, Scotland.
Dark amber almost brown in appearance. Has nice thick,creamy tan head.
Nothing much in the aroma department..some malts.
Creamy malty taste, slight hint of hops in the end.
Mouthfeel was smooth and nice because of it being in cask.
I suppose this is drinkable but a tad wearisome.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Cask conditioned @ Giddy Bridge (JDW), Soton. Caramelly biscuity malts with some nuttiness and a little yeast leading into a creamy sweet caramel body with a light smattering of bittering hops in the finish. A bit sweet for me.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Aroma gives pure sulphur and cali hops. Taste also has some sulphur in it, sweet and unbalanced with that cali taste kicking about in it.
