2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On cask at Cloisters. I have had this in a bottle before and remember enjoying it. I wonder if the recipe has changed because this was a very different beer, more like a saison. Poured a light golden colour with a fair white head. Aroma of lemon, apple, yeast and barley. Really quite musty with similar flavours. A very dry finish and mild carbonation. Will have to try this again.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Dobbies. Pours a murky, heavily sedimented orange with a slim white head. Pleasant, lightly buttered pine aroma. Clean and attractively soapy with light floral, lime jelly and piney hop. Husk and honey to finish. Good, but dirtied by bits as you hit the bottom, and pricey.

ChrisOs ’Donkey Dork Lord’ Pre-GBBF Tasting. Clear gold beer, good white head. Light lagerish malt, not much else going on. Hate to kick beers from new breweries but guys - you need hops to brew an IPA! Boring!

568ml bottle (ChrisO’s pre-GBBF2011 "Donkey Dork Lord" shindig)
Not much to say about this, it’s just a perectly ordinary bitter. Well executed, clearly made from all the right ingredients in the right proportions, but not going much beyond that. Not bad for a bottled beer, doesn’t feel dead (and I don’t think it was BC, as it wasn’t yeasty).
