3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at the Wharf. A clear copper colored beer with some off-white bubbles on top. Dark dried fruits, some toffee and pine cones in the aroma, as well as a hint of fruit caramel. It’s quite dry on the palate, but feeling lightly sweetish. Toffee, dark dried fruits and a decent bitterness. Pine cones too. Alcohol hints. Very soft carbonation. Lasting finish with a nice balance. Pretty nice this one. 150301

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at JDW Putney. Reddy brown, still, pretty clear, scummy head, thick lacing. Aroma is non-descript. Body is medium, low carbonation, pretty smooth mouthfeel. Taste is tangy and rummy, big rounded toffee malt character - almost pungent, a little dry and ashy, gluey, resiny. A malt bomb of a beer, just right for the season.
