3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Brownish amber. Resiny hop aroma. Dry and ligh bodied with a distinct, firm mouthfeel. salty and bready with a finish that mixes orange and bitterness. Another solid, if perhaps unexciting beer from Fuller’s.

Pint pulled at The Whistle and Flute (Putney, London), a light froth with a frothy head. The malty is strong, very biscuity.

Brown, spicy aroma. Spicy taste with butterscotch and molasses (?). Sweet hoppy aftertast with curry (spice) notes. Might go well with Indian food...

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cask conditioned at Charlies. Amber coloured. A fruity, nutty and sweet bitter with a buttery diacetyl touch in the aroma and in the flavour. Not very interesting.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
[Cask at Charlie’s Bar, Copenhagen] An amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet with notes of caramel and fruit giving it a very slight spiciness. The flavor is also sweet malty with strong notes of caramel and spices - it might be the molasses that gives it the spiciness, though I can’t pick out the molasses. Nice.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Wallington Festival. Touch of diacetyl is the only interest in this dull as dishwater bitter. Lack of hop bite and a dreary dull malt.
