Cask conditioned at The Turf Tavern, Oxford. Chestnut with slight head. A pretty smooth, malty beer with heavy toffee, caramel flavours. Quite cloying and a touch sweet for me to really enjoy it. Not totally sure about this one.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Amber brown with a small off white head. Rough malt aroma with a touch of marmalade. Pleasant full sweet malt taste, a little peppery, with some bitterness. Hammerpot don’t seem to be getting the best of ratings, however I’ve had a couple this week. Martlet was pretty good. This one, I thought was first class. Well done.
