2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Badly let down by a thin, watery, palate. Few standout flavours, vaguely malty with a little hop bitterness in the finish. Boring beer.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Two hand-pulled pints in ’The Barley’, a modern refurbished pub in Newport, Shropshire on 27 Apr 2013.
Light golden body with an off-white head which started off thin and got thinner by the second.
No huge aroma: a blend of biscuity malts and floral hops almost cancelled each other out.
The taste was fairly bland I’m afraid: some malt semi-sweetness and a hop content that tried to add some bitterness, but overall it didn’t do it for me, even though I had two pints, just to make sure. Mildly citrus towards the end of each sip, but nothing strong or robust about the beer at all.
Mid-bodied and OK as a session beer I suppose, just lacked the umph I’d have liked.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask. Not so good aroma, maybe cask was open for too long. Golden colour with long-lasting head. Not very intensive bitternes in taste with well balanced biscuit sweetness.

2.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
This beer had a nasy aroma of stale farts, I’m unsure what causes this as I’ve had it with a few beers, maybe it’s a type of hop or malt which causes it. The rest of beer was fine, taste was medium bitter

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
[cask at the Caledonian Brewery, Edinburgh] Pour is clear as a bell, large fluffy white head. Looks very inviting. Aroma is faintly sweet and musty, like hay in a loft after a long summer. The taste, surprisingly, is similar. Backed up by that trademark caramelised sweetspot flavour I just don’t get on with, the whole thing finishes just too sweet for my taste
