3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a hazy and brown beer with a weak white head. The aroma is malt, caramel and hops with grass. The flavor follows the nose. The palate is sweetness with notes of bitterness. Overall an average beer.

Cask at The Bishops Arms (Gustav Adolfs Torg) Malmo. Golden brown pour with a thin white head. A rather fruity aroma leading to a mellow fruity malty taste. It seems much less bitter than the bottled version and perhaps not bitter enough. I wonder if its been sitting in the pipes for too long. Still very drinkable though.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear amber, nice fluffy and solid cask head. Cottony malty aroma. Flavor has a subtle caramel toffee but a lot of coppery tin flavor which ruins it

Cask at Goldengrove, JDW, London. Pours clear russet with a fine, white froth crown. Fruity nose with light berries. Light to medium sweet flavor, some nice, semi-ripe berries, touches of brown sugar, hints of alcohol and leaves. Light to medium in body with fine carbonation. Sweet finish, some moderate toasted sugars, more berry fruits, very mellow leafy bitterness, mild lightly toasted bread. Itís a fine beer.

Very malty, nutty, with lots of toffee and caramel. Fruits that go well with the maltiness. Mmm.

My favorite English beer, very important to drink it young.
True afficionados drink it the day it is delivered - the publican may say it hasnít settled - ignore him and offer twice the usual price. When delivered it is bright, exciting the very elixir of life with hops whizzing around in the glass in the excited bubbles. It may look like a snow storm but the taste is out of this world. I have never met a publican that once persuaded to serve it on the day it is delivered is not hooked himself - they usually donít charge double the price you have offered to get them to serve it to you. Try this once and you too will be hooked!
