3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Gravity cask at the Walsall Camra, beer festival 2015. Poured a crystal clear medium amber with a bubbly white head. The aroma is light hop, light creamy malt. The flavour is moderate bitter with a smooth malt, woody hop bitter palate. Light bodied with soft carbonation. A decent session bitter and a real blast from the past!

Cask. Murky orange brown with frothy white head. Hints of tea and fruit, caramel, mild hop finish. Nothing spectacular but sandwiched in between some utter rubbish, I quite enjoyed it.

Cask @ King´s Cross, november 07. Shinny golden color with a small white head. Methallic, oxidized flavor. In a real bad condition. Medium to light mouthfeel, empty, flat and bland. Lifeless, astringent, null aftertaste. Skunky aroma with cardboard notes. Dull, off, forgettable bitter.

A Mes rate: Cask at The Prince of Wales, Highgate.
Darker side of blonde with a slim white head and lots of lace. Heavily citric hoppy aroma. Almost astingent hoppy flavour. Very sharp. Slightly soapy. Blah.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pint pulled at the Anchor & Hope in Waterloo (London), a clear amber with a filmy off-white head. Aroma is of flowery hops and juicy malt. A little sharo and tangy in the mouth, hoppy and bitter with malty flavours and a smooth aftertaste. It did get smoother and more flowery through the glass though.
