(Cask at Bree Louise, Euston, London, 1 Dec 2007) Pale copper colour with frothy, white head. Malty nose with notes of citrus, toffee, floral hops and hints of butter. Fruity, malty taste with peaches, citrus and floral hops in the finish. Faint traces of butterscotch. Decent, but hardly exciting.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask, Blackfriars, Inverness. Light copper, persistent fine white head. Lots of jammy tropical fruit aroma, slightly overripe and interesting. Flavor has lots of fruity appricot sweetness, but needs a little something...that’s just not there. Comes across as a bit flabby. Some promising aspects, but doesn’t quite make something cohesive.
