1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle from Tesco. Burnt orange pour with absolutely no head. This bottle may not have been treated very well. Big skunky metalic smell. Palete is very thin. Flavour is metalic slightly nutty. Worst beer I’ve have in a long time.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at the Bargeman’s Rest, Newport, Isle of Wight, 5th Sept 2007 (thanks to the lads at Stainless Games). Strong aroma of fruit and wine, but a bit musty. Clear amber appearance. Rich, malty taste - reminded me of Wadworth 6X. Full bodied but short on the finish. Good enough but not great.
