UPDATED: MAY 12, 2006 Re-rate: Cask, Anne of Cleaves, Melton Mowbray. Better quality than at the festival. A good balance of malts and fruitiness. Quite addictive with grapefruit bitterness. A very decent Everards brew. (Previously 3 out of 5). Cask, Leicester Fest 06. Golden brown with a small head. Aromas are sweet and fruity with apricot and pear. Also has tea with some pepper. Flavours are dry, fruity and earthy. Bitter towards the finish. OK, if a bit boring.

Cask at the Wellington Arms, Beford. Mid amber with a good off-white head. Not a strong aroma, but it’s a refreshing, sessionable springtime beer with a pleasant hoppy finish.

UPDATED: APR 20, 2006 Apr 06 Cask conditioned @ Giddy Bridge (JDW), Soton. Good Bitter Herbal hops and clean malts. Although served slightly cold in better condition. 3.7
Mar 06 Cask conditioned @ Humble Plumb, Soton. Herbaceous hops develop into a mild bitterness which helps to ease the growing caramelly malt components. Quite tasty and certainly worthy of trying in better condition as this seemed slightly green. 3.4

Cask (handpump) at The Colonies, Westminster. A hoppy little number from Evereards. Distinctly grassy, with a touch of pale malt in the background. Crisp, almost sharp, finish. Very drinkable.

<a href=http://www.beerintheevening.com/pubs/s/86/865 Salisbury, Covent Garden Wow! Oily, dripping fresh hops. Stunning! A fresh, beautifully conditioned ale with a gloriously emphatic burst of English hops. Stimulating and refreshing. This is a deliciously earthy, dusty, oily extravaganza.
