Cask @ Bier Huis, Burnley. Slightly hazy gold, with a creamy head. Has a light berry-sweetness in its nose. A touch more balanced in its taste but still with a sweetness.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled as Santa’s Tipple. A fizzy, lager coloured ale with a grassy aroma. Wheat is obvious and not very appealing for a Christmas beer, quite thin with a floral hop finish. Better on draught in summer.

Cask @ Lamb, Stoke Goldington. Golden and clear. Thin white head on top. Unconvincing aroma of banana, thin malt and sour fruit. Taste is very well balanced, a bittersweet taste leading to bitter-sour finish. Lingering aftertaste. Goes well with my meal but not so much on its own. Pretty good for this type of beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask (Charters, Peterborough)
Simple barley aroma. Pale orange, tiny brief head. Slightly leguminous, but not full-on vegetal. Cornflakes? Some toffee. A touch sour later. Has those soapy bitter fertilised female hops in the bitterness - quite agressive. The late finish has lots of barley which is an improvemtent. A barely adequate beer. No real flaws, in theory, but misses the mark in several places when it comes to what reached the glass.
