3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at Bluebell Tattershall Thorpe. Served with "swan neck" handpump. Gold with creamy white head. I am not a fan of this method of dispense which suits some beers more than others and tends to knock much of the hoppy flavour out of the beer. Anyway the first pint pulled off I returned as slighty vinegar taste/smell, surprisingly the next pint was OK. A pleasant malty beer similar to how it used to be brewed when Whitbreads. Could do with more hops and flavour.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at Fellows Morton Clayton, Nottingham. One of their usual beers, wonderfully average, nice hit of caramel maltyness with some kind of fruit hiding behind it, seems to finish before it starts, OK-ish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(nitro can)caramel and toffee aroma, earthy. Nitro can gives it that classic bubbly pour with a thick creamy head. Creamy mouthfeel, combined with a sweet flavour, some roasty malts. A solid english pint. There was a metallic aftertaste that was probably due to the can sitting around for awhile.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A found much the same aromas and tastes that Silk Tork describes - apples & pears, berries & violets. Low hop profile, but very complex palate. However, felt that the overall effect was rather marred by the overly soft and short finish. Still a nice beer though. Cask (gravity), Battersea Beer Festival.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Gravity @ The Battered Beer Festival. Copper coloured. This is how to use Marris Otter - good caramel and toffee and raspberry and apples and autumn hedgerows. One brilliant ale - full of assorted juicy flavours. Very moreish, very smooth and drinkable. Parma violets and pear drops in aroma. All malt. The finish is empty with just the merest hint of hop. A decent ale indeed.

Cask Conditioned, at the Battersea Beer Festival, 2004.
Amber with a shiny fine white head. Moderately fruity, moderately bitter, moderately good, drop of beer. Slightly disappointing given my high expectations of Camerons.
