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 didnít 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.
