Cask at the Grid Inn Wetherspoon pub in Southfields, London SW18, UK on 9th September 2009. Brown with a lot of haze and thick creamy head lasting for duration of the slowly-consumed pint. Bitter chocolate aromas met by slight caramel before a pungent kick with a sharp hop climax. Soft, slightly creamy mouthfeel leading to a delayed, but very bitter lasting finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled (thanks to the craziest bartender around). Amber colour with mediumsized slightly off-white creamy head. Aroma is fruity, flowery, a bit nutty as well as some wooden notes. Mild caramel malty sweetness as well. Flavour is very much the same in a nice balance. Quite grassy and flowery aftertaste and finish. More like a bitter than an ESB.

500ml bottle. Nice looking reddy amber body with good head and clumps of lacing. Toffee, apples and some caramel in the aroma. Similar in the taste with a touch of raisins, well made.

Handpulled cask at JDW Hatch End, Harrow. Amber with an off white head. Malt dominates with complex tropical fruit flavors coming through which seem unrelated to the restrained but pleasent hoppy finish.

A deep brown beer with a nice, light looking head. It’s chocolate aromas carry through into the powdery mouthfeel. Very light in the mouth with tiny hints of hops that become more pronounced in the finish but give way, even then, to smooth sweetness. It has a nesquik powdered milkshake to it which is weird and nice all at once. Plenty of biscuit here too. It’s not super challenging but it IS tasty.
