Whoever the sheriff is he’s not going to be overly happy with his tipple. Those are the breaks I guess.

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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask conditioned at The Crown, Oxford. Amber with white head. Quite a simple boys bitter, fairly thinnish but with a greenish grainy maltiness and an easy, leafy hop flavour. It’s ok for a quaffing type beer.
Earlier Rating: 9/5/2010 Total Score: 2.8
Cask conditioned, gravity dispensed at Harbury Beer Fest ’10. Gold to amber with white head. This tasted a little undeveloped, there is a raw greengage note, floral and perfumed, dryish and a bit green. Not that enjoyable.

On cask at Wyke Lion, Bradford - Amber body, thick white head. Good malt base and not too sweet. Quite tasty for a low ABV - a good session beer.
