3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From what I remember, this was a pretty copper/goldish ale with a quickly disapating eggshell head.
Aroma of caramel malt and not too much else, palate was relatively light/medium with a pretty soft finish as it came from the cask. Taste was not spectacular, but far from terrible. Had a taste of toast and oil with a bit of hoppiness. Swear I tasted saltwater as well in the aftertaste.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask (handpump) at the Mad Bishop & Bear, Paddington Station on 1 May 2009. Only scooped this because I was dying to empty my bladder on returning from Reading and didn’t want to pay the station toilet fees. Clean gold colour. Sweetish with a little caramel. Some soft bitterness on the finish. A quite plain, if fairly pale, bitter - palatable but not very exciting.

Cask. A golden beer with a thin off-white head. The aroma has notes of matl and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and spices of some sort I can’t put a name to, leading to a dry finish.

Cask at the Argyll Arms. Clear amber-honey pour with basically no head. Bready malt aroma with some caramel and toffee. Lightly sweet, malty and bready with dry, grassy bitterness. Light bodied with light carbonatio. Bitter, dry finish with plenty of bread. So so.
