A Mes rate. Cask at Baker Street íSporks.
Yet another beer Spooned to death by useless staff at the Metropolitan. Amber coloured with a vaguely visible white collar. Pondwater, bread (lots of it) and erm... Nope, thatís it. Do people really want to drink something this bland?

Cellar run at JDW Hatch End. Amber with loose bubbled off white head. Unmistakable Cotleigh house yeast characture of corked wine. Bready malt and a touch of stale english hops. Not in brilliant nic but clearly neither one of this breweries most imaginative creations.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask - West Gate Inn (JDW), Canterbury. A light, golden brown with a small, frothy white head. A dusty hop aroma and some caramel malt on the nose. Really quite musty and yeasty in terms of flavour, both at the fore with a dry toasty, nutty bitterness on the finish. Medium in body with an OK length finish.
