3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
nice gold colour but very weak head. Strong, floral, hoppy nose. Very, very sharp, dry and bitter at the start - there is hardly any malt sweetness mellowing this at all. It mellows a bit as it goes along, but remains a dry and hoppy experience with a palate-cleansing lingering finish.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Bronze beer with a light bubbly head. The aroma is very dry and slightly toffee, and the flavour is also deeply dry, slightly caramel with an added vinous quality. Overall a nice but slightly disappointing beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask conditioned at the Lambton Worm (JDW), Sunderland. Golden colour, no head, little lacing. Moderate citrussy aroma. Light bodied. Pineapple and grapefruit in the flavour. Quite nice, but unfortunately a bit too sweet to be a definite favourite of mine.
