2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cask at the Rose & Crown, Sandhurst. A pale amber pour with a loose white head; fresh grassy aroma; soft grainy body; and a crisp grassy bitterness. A very basic Golden Ale. Possibly a completely different beer to earlier ratings, with the name reused in time for the Queen’s 90th birthday - there’s still a steam engine on the pump clip though.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask @ Pratts and Payne. Hazy golden colour. Little aroma - some citrus, malt and maybe honey. Pretty light bodied (and so lifeless!) with a big apple juice hit and a touch of honey and malt followed by absolutely nothing. So boring.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Gravity cask at the Bree Louise. Clear, yellow-gold with no head. Some biscuits and citrus on the nose. Light sweet flavor, tangy but not in a great way. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Slight bitter finish, some orange citrus and grass. Average at best.

Cask conditioned at The Woolpack, Banbury. Brown amber with white head.Unremarkable beer, stuck between a faint rich maltiness and a fruity hop and achieves neither. Absolutely fresh on tap so it must be the Brewer.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask Conditioned, at the Wenlock Arms, London.
Amber body with a fine clinging head. Malty aroma which tells no lies. This beer is solely about the malt. No hops are present and its character and flavour are built solely around the malt base. So in summary the beer is one dimensional and rather boring. Perhaps it would be more acceptable in winter.

Cask@The Brewery Tap, Wimbledon.Bready, grainy malts. Bitter earthy hops, some burnt honey in the flavour, not a winner with me, but perfectly drinkable.

Well I do declare, another respectable but unspectacular beer from Cottage at the Head of Steam. Basically, it’s a strongish, middle of the road bitter. Cottage seem to have got bored with whippets for now and reverted to railway themed beers. This one has a steam train, not a castle on the pump clip. Cask (handpump).
