11/7/2009 1:10:36 PM Cask at JDW, Heathrow, Term 4. Slight amber with no head. Sour nose. Sour taste and quite watery texture. Didn’t finish it. I wonder if I got a bad batch reading the other ratings...

Hazy pour. Some biscuit backing and grapefruit, zesty bite. Not the best balance and an oily consistency.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask. Hazy honey pour with a frothy head. Nice hoppy, spicy aroma. Some honey, caramel, sugar, to go along with a solid malt backing. Touch of fruit too. A bit sticky in the mouthfeel... but ultimately excellent.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tasted this in Tennents Bar, Glasgow in October 2008. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear pale copper in colour with a thin white head. Dry dusty hop flowers in the short aroma. Thin mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt base gives a weak digestive base with tart redcurrant fruit which is quite short. Dry hop resins give a tart metallic tang in the long aftertaste. Astringent hop resins present in the dusty dry finish. An ok autumnal ale but better examples are out there.
