2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask at the Bell, Waltham St Lawrence. Apparently making a reappearance after 10 years. Pale copper with a scummy white head; simple malty aroma; soft caramel amlt taste with some light fruit; then some herbal bitterness giving a pleasant finish, but lacking the impact usually associated with NZ hops these days.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A decent mixed-density head. Effervescent, floral aroma. Flavor of juice drink, orange, pine. Quite lacking in life, watery, but with astringent bitterness driving the finish. A vinyl/plastic quality comes out in the flavor. (gravity pour at 2003 Chelmsford Beer Festival)

Cask Conditioned, at The Masque Haunt, London
Murky pale ale blonde, steady but slight white head. It takes some concentration but if you do make the effort, there is citrus marmalade, apricot and slight rose honey flavour to be found.
