Gravity cask at the Wandsworth Common London Beer Festival July 2013 - Le Gothique. Pours lightly hazy gold with a fine, creamy white head. Bready malt nose, some grainy bread. Light sweet flavor with further grainy bread, light bitter hay. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet finish with basic bready malt character. So so.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Cask @ The Priory Arms. The pourís medium amber with a small white head. The nose is of a standard bitter. Some caramel, bread, twig etc. The taste is more of the same. Soft toffee and brown bread. Light wood, a touch of lemon zest on the finish. Unfortunately there were also some rough cardboard flavors. Notes of toasted tobacco. Light body, fine carbonation. Overall, a poor beer. Florence beers are bad, their Head In A Hat range is no different.
