3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at the Wellington, Birmingham. Poured a crystal clear medium amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is light malt, light hop. The flavour is medium to light bitter with a smooth malt hop bitter palate and a short bitter finish. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. A superb session bitter and one of the best I’ve had. Brings back memories of Eddie’s days at the Fiddler. Come back please Eddie, all is forgiven :-) Seriously, we would love to see your cask beers back there as guests.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light gold, thin loose white head; hoppy aroma; a very bitter beer chock full of earthy hops; this has an acidic grapefruit character; boring it ain’t, but this is much too astringent for me.

A pleasant beer that was easily drinkable on a cold broadstairs afternoon!

Cask at the Lovebox Festival. I’ll be honest: I didn’t take great notes on this one. In fact, I didn’t really take any notes. But I’ll tell you what, this was a fine beer. A mighty fine beer, in some ways, at least. Had some dry, lightly toasted malts and hints of dried leaves. The body was light and the carbonation was fine. It wasn’t very sweet and had, perhaps, some light berry notes to complement the dry, toasty malts. I enjoyed it overall.

Cask @ Akkurat. Very traditional english cask bitter... and therefore i love it! Low carbonation, quite bland, but very refreshing and drinkable.
