Nice white head. Appearance is the best with this ale. Well balanced in taste and aroma but nothing is going on. Juat some malt and hops. However drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Amber, clear, with a lovely white head from the natural carbonation. Light cereal and egg aroma. The taste is caramel bittersweet with eggy sour and slight spice notes. Medium long bitter-sour finish. Mouthfeel too weak for my liking. Enjoyable but nothing special really.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at the Falcon, Clapham. Golden orange, totally clear and still, small foamy white head. Aroma doesn’t have a lot to it - malty, soft citrus. Body is light, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is biscuity, smooth malt character, touch of tangy fruit suggeting passionfruit, soft musty bitterness. Slightly watery but this is a very well balanced ale.
