Golden brown, thin white head; dry bitterness, a little fruit; not much to speak of; a very tired cask and the epitome of a badly served boring bitter (courtesy of the Scott Arms, Kingston).

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
On cask @ the Haymarket Bar, Edinburgh. I’m very aware that this beer may not have been served in the best condition. The appearance was as expected but there was a hint of sour apple (unpleasant) and apart from that no other fruit character from the hops. The taste is no more exciting. I am not giving this as low a mark as my experience suggests as I will need to re-try on another occasion.
