Draught (Cambridge Blue, Cambridge)
Light Orange, no head. Mildly sweet malt and hoppy aroma - another bitter. Tastes fairly standard bitter, but on swallowing leaves an orange zestiness on the tongue.

Bottle thanks to Ronnie from the 3 Judges as a present. Some bas**d put this in the coldest of cold fridges in my work for 3 days till it went clowdy it was that cold, so i had to leave it in my cuboard (my cellar) for a week or so to sort itself out, but still probably not in the best nick. Aroma is fruity as, dryed apricots are key, sweet lemon, peach melba over a biscuity malt base. Taste is bit hops hit the tongue, followed by fruit and a serious hit of biscuit malt, the finish slowly fades into dryness but the flavours stay. Im drinkign this right now, thats why such a detailed rating.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bargain, almost-out-of-date bottle from Tesco. Pours a dull gold with an aggressively fizzing head of scummy, big-bubbled suds. Big, swirling chunks of yeast. Apple-accented fruitiness in the snout, with sniffs of Tripelish wood. Earthy, flat and fruity with hints of apple or pear and vanilla. Paracetemol aftertaste lingering nastily. Has the feel of a not-quite-right homebrew or end of festival beer about it. Plughole-bound, but not in prime condition.

Hazy yellow/orange coloured, chunks of yeast, lots of carbonation, big lasting head. Yeasty aroma, some citrus. Malty and yeasty flavour, watery. Some bitterness in finish. Besides its bitterness nothing much is going on. Thanks to my girlfriend for bringing it from Cambridge.

More often found in bottles than on tap in Cambridge these days... Is it still at the Fountain on Regent Street? I’ve found it to be unreliable - varying from average to thin of flavour. I’d go with the description below by ’Harrisoni’.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask conditioned - handpump - Malt Shovel Northampton. A golden coloured beer with a decent white head and lacing. The aroma is biscuity or crystal malt. The taste is quite bitter and a little malty also. Borderline green but OK.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. Slightly unclear golden beer with sediments and a small white head. Sour aroma, probably wild yeast, with fruity and floral notes behind. Some bitter orange too. The flavor is fruity, acidic and citric, with a stinging bitterness in the end. Too thin and watery. It is still 6 months to BBE-date, maybe the brewery have a problem with the sanitation, cause this beer probably shouldn’t be sour. Other than that, it is a well-tasting and refreshing beer. (060806)

A Mes rate: Cask in a bar in Cambridge. When in Rome... Slight orange in the aroma. Average appearance but with lots of lace. Initially malty with a lengthy citric hop finish. Standard fayre but ok.
