3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear brilliant reddish amber colour, dissipating white head. Aroma of straw, caramel, light green twigs, hint butterscotch. Sweet malty flavour, caramel, light biscuit, corn, honey. Malty finish, light straw, bit sweet buttery notes reminding of toast with butter and honey. Bit on the sweet side, but still an enjoyable Bitter.
(From 50cL bottle @ home. Thanks for getting me the bottle, Benzai!)

I took a trip out to the Grainstore Brewery Tap and wasn’t disappointed in the Ten Fifty which was bright as a button and had a fabulously creamy head that laced down the glass. This has to be my all time favourite beer and reminded me, as I was later told of the original Ruddles County before Greene King destroyed it.

Cask @ Bankers Draft, Bedford. Golden brown, clear with not much head but decent lacing. Aroma of honey and wood. Mostly dry in the taste, a bit of bitter herb. Medium dry finish. I like it more over the course of the pint, which is a good sign. Am I warming to Grainstore? Watch this space.
