3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2006 Cask. Dark copper colour. Rocky white head. Nice refreshing, sourish aroma, fruity and grainy hoppiness. The bitterness has a certain sourness and fruitiness to it which is quite nice. Long, rough, fruity aftertaste. This beer is strangely appealing.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
I wrote this down on a business card so can’t remember where I had it. Suffice to say it must be one of those forgettable beers. I do recall having it in a very smoky pub that obviously affects the rating. It looked fine as most of its ilk do, but the rest is ust another of those bitters that gives our British colleagues a lot of rates but not much to go on about.

Cask at Charlies, Copenhagen. Amber / reddish colour with a foamy off white head. Fruity aroma with a hoppy touch. Flavor starts malty and fruity, then the hops kicks inn and it finishes with a fresh bitterness.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Deep amber beer with a slight malt and citrus nose. Thick flabby toffee malt flavour with a dry bitterness and strange "oak ageing" flavour. Fairly bitter and hoppy finish with a delicate fruitiness and lasting bitter finish. One of the better regional beers. (Cask @ White Hart, Crawley)

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
The DM & Hotstuff’s European Honeymoon trip beer number 7. This draft brew from the Market Porter in London poured a small head of mostly diminishing finely sized off white colored bubbles. The body was uncarbonated transparent and brown in color. It had a smooth flat malt flavor with no bite at all. The flavor was also flat and almost non-existent with only a mildly bitter maltiness. The aroma was also very mild and almost non-existent. There was very little to this beer.
