2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pale yellow with a small head. It’s pretty much what it says on the pump clip, it’s a fine bitter with a high bitterness and lots of malty-hop character.

Hazy blond color. Nice fudge/toffee aroma. Some malt flavor, with residual sweetness, low bitterness, less interesting than the aroma.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at Victoria Hotel, Beeston, Nottingham. Gold with a white head. Cardboard aroma, possibly malty. Despite its claim to be ’strong on aroma’, I judged this the weakest feature. The taste was inconsistent: slight sweetness to begin, not much to notice in media res, followed by a pleasant hoppiness in extremis.
