3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at The Wellington, Birmingham. Poured a clear copper colour with a broken white bubbly head. The aroma is malty but weak leading to a medium bitter flavour, with fruity hoppy dry bitter notes. The dry bitterness hits the palate fairly quickly and stays around for a while. Not quite what I would expect from Everards, but very welcome all the same.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tasted this in the Saltcot, Saltcoats (JDW) in December 2005. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear pale copper red in colour with a thin white head. Sweet malt present in the short nose. Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malts give a short digestive biscuit base with hints of juicy raisin fruit and redcurrants. Dusty prickle of dry hop flowers give a brief resiny aftertaste. Malt edges it in the finish with orange peel notes evident. An ok session bitter.
