3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
8th April 2013
Crosse Keys Spoons. Almost clear amber beer, good pale cream coloured head. Palate is delightfully fresh and smooth. Semi dry with good fine carbonation. Light fresh creamy malt. Nice balancing hops - semi sweet fresh orange and mild floral notes. Turns much more bitter and provides a long bitter linger. Just a really nicely balanced, fresh and drinkable beer. Nice one!

Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Gold to amber with no head. Very thin and watery on the palate, some sweet syrupy fruit, slightly floral, elderflower cordial, but really too wishy washy. Not good.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask conditioned handpump Hedley Verity Leeds 15/04/13. A reddy brown coloured beer with a white head and lace. Sweetish toasty malts and hops. nice character and good flavours with the toastiness being enjoyable. Nowhere near hoppy enough to be an Amber Ale on my tasting; more like an Irish Ale in many ways.
