3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour on tap at Churchkey DC, hazy reddish orange pour with thin white head, aroma was big creamy biscuit, bread, nice grassy, spicy and yeasty notes, nice and subtle vanilla and honey notes as well. Taste is a mix of sweet and soft cracker, biscuit, some acidic malts as well into a touch of grass, spice and hints of white fruit, finishing fairly bitter, slightly sweet. Well done.

Pompa @ flint pub.
Chiara con schiuma fine e persistente.
Già al naso si sente un po’ di luppolo, impressione confermata in bocca, finale in po’ corto...

Cask draft at Strangelove. The beer engine nicely opens up this otherwise standard bitter. Cloudy peach pour with a very frothy head. Tastes of a complicated sour toasted wheat beer. Good body. Good brew.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Half-pint, hand-pulled at the Firs Club, Codsall on 17 Nov 2012.
Although I’ve had this at the brewery pub years back I couldn’t really remember anything about it: I still don’t.
Light amber body with a thin white head.
Aroma was fairly weak: malty mostly, but after the initial caramel hints a fruity, more hoppy smell arrives.
The taste is also malts initially with a fruitier and dry hoppy underbelly. Pleasant enough and my first beer at the Real Ale Festival the club was holding. A good solid session bitter with nothing that is going to upset anyone with strong or powerful flavours.
