2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at Putney JDW. Free due to being the last of the cask. Hazy orange brown, still, very big foamy tan head endures. Aroma is musty, damp, socks. Body is medium, low carbonation, smooth. Taste is biscuity malts, soft and watery, light bitterness. Some vegetal notes bringing this down, but the condition is clearly not perfect (hence the free beer). Will have to revisit.

Bottle from Tesco in Ryde. Pours out in a deep amber-brown colour with low head and medium body. Aroma of roasted barley and malt. Taste of malt, cake, bread, dark berries, torf, straw and flowers. Dry finish with coffee hints. Nice one but nothing special.

Cask in the Kings Head W2. Brand new barrel, dunno if it was perfectly conditioned. Brownish beer, thick white head. Prickly hop bitterness, surprised a bit. Malts all tasted a bit muddled to me. A bit disappointing, I’ve enjoyed Cotleigh beers in the past.
