1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Tasted 22/4/2013 draught "Garrick Arms", Leicester square, London. Poured a clear golden amber colour with a few bubbles for a head. Laced poorly. Aroma-less. Tasted semi-sweet fading to a very very slight bitterness - not much of a taste of anything or any bitterness. Light body (watery). Smooth, soft, light flavoured - a bit like drinking water.

Solid brown pour with decent white head that sticks around for creaminess. Simple malt/hop combo. Mildly nutty. Quite smooth. Nothing grand.

Had a couple of pints of this ale at the Malt Shovel Tavern yesterday evening after drinking some Eagle ale at The Headlands beforehand. Taste buds were slightly tainted after the Eagle, so initial assessment of St Edmund’s was luke warm. But by the time I was ready to order my second pint I was won over. A good fruity taste that’s soft on the palate and with no noticable after effects.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at The Wharf, Aalborg, Denmark
Amber color with no head. Mild aroma of caramel and manure. Round mouthfeel; good malt/caramel flavor, with correct bitterness, light grassy touch, but also a bit metallic. It has a light residual sweetness in the end.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
[Cask at Copa, Reading] Light amber, small white head. Light fruits at first (maybe orange), a little caramel, a touch of sulphur. Dull and slightly dirty - a sad return to form for GK after having been impressed with their pleasant IPA Gold a couple of days earlier.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask @ The Anchor, Cambridge. Pour’s a deep amber color with a small white head. The nose is light summer fruits, plenty of GK’s hallmark yeastiness. Some sugar. The taste is more summery fruits, pear, toffee and yeast. Light, soft. Overall, this isn’t offensive, just boring.
