2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
First tasted this at the Hogshead, Paisley in October 1997. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear pale amber in colour with a thin creamy white head. Slight malt note in the short aroma. Thin mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt gives a digestive biscuit base with a touch of caramel and tart pomegranate fruit. Hoppy resins give a dry bitterness to the short aftertaste. Slight hint of dry liquorice in the smooth malty finish. An ok session bitter.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cask conditioned at Cockney Pub, Århus
Golden color. It has a light apple aroma (from the fermentation), too much yeast aroma and yeast flavor, some residual sweetness. Too simple.

Cask Handpump at The Wellington, Birmingham (where it was selling for only £1.10/pint as they needed the pump for their forthcoming beer festival, but I tried not to let that fact affect the scores!). Amber with a short head and a perfumed scent. Caramel and bitter hops in the taste. Simple and good.

Hand pulled at the City Tavern, Birmingham. Pale brown, light and airy with a fluffy head. Creamy mouthfeel generally. Reminds me of Rowntree jelly in a way; toffee light, very smooth. Pleasant session material.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask Conditioned at The Bell, Banbury. Mid brownt to orange beer with fluffy head. A bit of a basic bitter, medium roasted malt, some fruit and then a boiled, not fresh bitterness. I found this to be an over processed beer for a cask, almost a carbonated bottled beer.
