3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pint from the JDW real ale festival. Dark amber colour, clear, one finger head, decent retention. Aroma was berries and yeast, reminded me of a Belgian pale ale. Tasted malt and notes of rasperry, some hoppy bitterness at the finish. Smooth, minimal carbonation, texture on the thick side. Overall this was a good beer, had character, kept me interested.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Brown, slight amber glow, thin white head; taste is sweetish juicy malt and citrus fruit; still not that many hops for an IPA; it’s hard not to be prejudiced against this having had to endure a thousand handpumps for the awful basic product over the years; whatever, it’s a million miles better than it’s much-disparaged cousin; a nice full body, especially; pretty decent, in fairness.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Impressive reddy amber hue. Very smooth to drink. Had the right flavour for an IPA but much more subtle and citrussy than some similar beers but packs a punch at 5.4%

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A mid amber brown coloured beer with a thick white head. A light, sweet butterscotch aroma with a hint of malt. Medium-dry mouthfeel. A dry malty taste, bittersweet caramel and toffee. There is hint of sour fruit in the background that does balance out the sweetness. The finish is a tad cloying.
Tasted at the Ely Hotel, Blackwater, Hampshire.

2.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Medium amber in colour, head variable as in all cask ales. Fairly thin for its gravity and no aroma whatever. Quite easy drinking for a strong-ish bitter but not especially distinguished.
