4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask at the Townhouse, Ely. Amber, clear, wonderful white head and a fair bit of lacing. Vinous smell. Cedar, turpentine, currants, a hint of tobacco. Taste is sweet, smooth and fruity. Surprisingly complex, deftly turning bitter on the tongue mid-sip. Intense yet balanced aftertaste. Moreish. This excellent real ale brewery have done it again.

8th June 2014 sat in the sun on the front terrace of the excellent Barking Smack on Great Yarmouth’s seafront road. Hand-pulled half-pint. Good deep amber body with a reddish hue, on top a smooth white covering of tight bubbles. I found it hoppier than malty, a nice blend of flavours actually. Nothing overly powerful or mega tasting, just a good easy to drink British beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A mid reddish orange coloured beer with a weak white head. A light but full
aroma of nutty malt, caramel and bready, there is a hint of orangey hop in the background. Dry mouthfeel. A medium dry malt flavour, nutty, caramel and cereal, followed again by a tangy citrusy hop flavour that adds a good balance to the finish.
Tasted at the 3rd. Fakenham Beer Festival.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask UEA. Chestnut coloured beer with a large, soft head which shrank to nothing. Fruits, woods, and some caramel. Lovely long lingering bitter finish from juicy hops - which is what lifts this above beers of this type. Medium body with a soft carbonation. Nice from a cold cellar.
