Cask, gravity dispense, at Wellington Arms Beer Festival ’07, Bedford. Golden amber with a small white head. Malty taste and some sourness. A wheaty background taste, but a bit thin. Low bitterness. So-so.

Bottle August 05 picked up from the shop near the brewery. Another Earl Soham beer which fails to excite me, light brown in colour, quite hoppy and with a reasonable bitterness present throughout, it’s fine.

Bottle Conditioned. This was a gift from chris_o. An out of date British bottle conditioned beer. Hmmm. Thanks Chris! Anyway, the hops have not survived. And there is the expected sharpness. Beyond that I can detect the possibility of this being a nice beer. But at the moment this is siimply a drain pour. Average mark given.
