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.

Red with large white head. Musty aroma. Slightly bitter for some balance. Getting used to the English hops, earthier and less resinous and fruity than what I normally drink.

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.

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.
