2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask at the Hounslow JDW, dark red-brown with a lasting taupe head, malty and nutty, sharp herbal bitterness, but also unpleasantly woody. End of the barrel? Should have asked for a taste first.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Tesco, pours a brown coper amber colour with minimal head which doesn’t hang around long. Smell is malt and slight earthy hops. Taste is mild sweet and mild bitter, quite nicely balanced. A bit thin although slightly oily too. Overall a decent bitter.

Nice one. Will try again. Amber appearance caramel flavours and good bite on palate. Seems stronger than advertised. Taste enjoyable. Overall pretty good.

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.
