3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at the Windsor Castle W8. I used to love this when I was younger, pints in the Pickerel, awesome. Itís a very old school bitter, no craft nonsense here, needs to be fresh, balanced and quite malty with just a lingering hop finish. Was it as good as I remembered? Probably not on this occasion, didnít quite carry that hop finish as well, so a vaguely malty bitter. Oh well. And they had two lots of Tim Taylors on cask so what can you do...

Pint in The Osprey, Newton Mearns. Amber ale with light creamy head. Refreshing ale with bitter, floral overtones. Perfect accompaniment to crisps or nuts.

Clear amber pint with a thick creamy head. Sweet malty flavour, very slight almost metallic hint in the aftertaste. Would get a touch sickly after too many but itís quite nice.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at The Roebuck, Leek (Titanic) A clear amber colour with a creamy white head. Aroma of toasted malt, caramel, biscuit and slight apple. Taste of caramel, fruity malt like grape and apple plus yeast and biscuit. Light bodied and a smooth texture. A bittersweet, biscuity malt finish. A pleasant enough, session beer.

On cask at the Haymarket.

Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a fairly good finish.
Overall - itís balanced but itís uninspiring
