2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Cask@lychgatetavern, Wolverhampton. Brownish red with small head. Slight aroma of bananas. Small head. Taste is a hint of bananas, toffee and alcohol (stronger taste than its ABV warrants.) Over ripe fruits and sour. Not a beer to my liking, but some may like it.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Darker than golden- I would say brown! Not a very strong smell from it but a very big hit of banana on tasting- similar to a banana toffo or banana yahoo with a slight coffee aftertaste. I rather liked it!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at the Sussex Arms, Twickenham Green - 30/09/12.
Clear dark golden verging on amber/brown with a bubbly off-white head.
Sour nose, touch of bretts (although I don’t believe they were used on this beer), some toffee.
Taste largely follows the nose, sour tones, dark fruit, very slight hint of the banana in a banana/toffee chewy sweet kind of way also a little nutiness and spice.
Medium bodied, moderate carbonation with a smooth bitter & sour finish.
Interesting beer which I rather liked, although I’m not sure it was intended to come out this way? One that was hard to categorise also. I was tempted to add as spice/herb/veg, but played safe with golden, feel free to amend!
