2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask conditioned at The King Charles II, Worcester. Pale gold with white head. Sweet and slightly honeyed beer, fruity but nothing specific, it leaves a sweet coating on the tongue. Not to my taste.

Cask at the Duke William during the RateBeer Black Country Bus Bash. Pours clear, light yellow with a tight, white foam head. Lovely golden ale with nice balance, sweet dough, light straw. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Great condition. Sweet finish with doughy pale malts, white bread and subtle bitter straw. Good one.

It’s just a summer Black Country bitter, not too great on the nose because of the FeS (Iron Sulphide) in the water around the area, but a pleasant mild citrus note in the after taste. It’s far more uniform batch-batch than it used to be.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at the Duke William, Stourbridge. Poured a clear light straw colour with a broken white head. The aroma is a mellow egg smell I must say leading to a weak bitter, malty flavour with a watery palate. It’s a good job I like eggs!
