1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Cask handpull at Wetherspoons, Folkestone. I can see what Mungo and imdownthepub are saying, there is some nice red berry malt in this. Copper coloured bitter with disappearing white head. But for me it had a bit of vinegar. Maybe it wasn’t served at its best. Malt is ok but the vinegar element is nasty. May have it again to see if it is in better condition.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask conditioned @ Giddy Bridge (JDW), Soton. Light copper. Fruity with strawlike hops. Quite fresh and delicate with a touch to much malt compared to the hops.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Amber gold with slight head. Another in the glut of World cup beers this is a bittersweet beer, early hops in the mouth but flabs out to a fruity, malty thin taste. I got a flavour of lychees. There is a delicacy to the beer, so overall quite reasonable.
