3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Half-pint, cask festival ale at JDWs William Morris in Hammersmith. Golden body, close to clear. Spotty lacing from a none existing head. Citrus hops to the nose. Blended taste of grapefruits and semi-sweet malts. Fresh twist of bittersweet ending, smooth and long lived. Not far form the classic Bitter & Twisted creation. Pleasing (07.11.2012)

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask handpull, The High Cross (JDW), Leicstaaa, 16/11/12. Deep-pillowed, thick-lacing pale gold. Pissy rabbit fur, lime zest, mild nuttiness on nose. Stewed, rasping grapefruit, lemon zest and Darjeeling hits. Dry hop, grapefruit finish softened with cashew malt. Pintworthy, but a touch too quinine/shampoo bitter even for me.
