3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
[Cask at the Volunteers Arms, GBBF, 2004] A yellow beer with a small off-white head. The aroma is sweet with notes of alcohol, yeast, and fruit. The flavor is sweet malty, rather hoppy, but also with notes of yeast and fruit. To me this is quite Belgian - even though it is based on a Continental Lager brewed with English yeast.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Although this is billed as a "lager", I rather doubt that there has been any extended low temperature storage going on here. Whilst I can applaud breweries' attempts to seduce mega-swill drinkers into trying a cask ale by putting lager on the pump clip, like Lea Parsons, I have struggled to find any entirely successful renditions. Nothing wrong with this in a soft, pale, malty sort of way, but nothing to really excite either and certainly not very authentic. Cask, Battersea Beer Festival.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Burton 24th Fest. Gold and bubbly for a cask lager. Aroma is that of a malty lager. Somehow this manages to cling to the roof of the mouth and is strangely powdery. No dryness or bitterness, either. Not a great lager - not many English cask lagers are.
