3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask handpull at Crosse Keys, JDW, London. Deep chestnut colour with sparsebeige head. Oddly malty but metallic beer. Malt in mouth is good and bitterness on end, some choc and grainyness. Feels like a dark malt beer, but the mouthfeel feels light whilst the end is grainy/dry with some caramalised red fruit. Genuinely odd.

JDW, Holborn Mmmm. This is a very tasty and fresh malty beer with enough hops to provide interest, balance and a further depth of attraction, leading into a lingering finish. The combination of sweetness and bitterness playing around the fruit is quite delightful. A very enjoyable drop.

Aug 05 @ Guide Dog, Soton (03/08/05). Mid-brown with frothy off-white head. Fairly malty with an odd tangy fruity hop taste I couldnt quite place. Strange but not in a bad way. 3.1

Golden colour. Fruity/nutty aroma. Sweetish palate. Some hops. Full bodied. Long fruity finish. OK, but not really to my taste - others might well think more highly of it. Handpump, Crosse Keys, London EC4, February 2003
