3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught, Akkurat Fair off-white head, creamy and tight tops the medium copper body, which displays a nice haze. Seriously malty nose showcasing lots of fresh cereals in crunched grains form and almost a bit wheaty. Gnerous basis of fruits underlines what find to be the typical Dugges house character in the form of a certain strawberry-like componene to the malt, particularly obvious in the Bollox. Rather undefined sweetness besides, kinda bready and certainly fruity, but not as focused as it could be hop-wise, just faintly tropical with minimal citrus, yet a competent bittering force. Ample carbonation cleanses the tongue and engages further sips.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught at Bishops Arms. Pours dark amber with a hint of haziness and a thin but creamy beige head. Aroma is dominated by hops, citrus, flowers and pine. A little caramellish maltiness blends in with all the wonderful hops, and I sense a faint scent of yeast as well. Smooth mouthfeel. Alcohol not noticable, and a distinct bitterness lingers in the finish.
