3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
on cask @ Wenlock Arms (London). Clear amber with a frothy off-white head. The aroma is herbal/bitter offset by dry grain. It tastes the same, less herbal character, it seems to want to be a bit honey-sweet. Average body, slightly astringent, a surprisingly long somewhat bitter finish, which eventually seems a bit harsh. Decent enough.

Cask (Gallows Bird, Espoo)
(Near end of barrel, tipped, but not old.) Rich orange. Tangy English hoppy aroma. Quite drying in the mouth. Very tasty English bitter taste. Nice as a quaffer, but characterful too. Proper English beer like ’ow it should be!

Cask@St. Albans BF. As mes mentions this has quite a lot of tea character. Besides that, theres not much going on, very short finish, with an odd dry watery finish. NOt one of their best, usually they kick arse!
