2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JAN 24, 2011 Cask conditioned - handpump - Coach & Horses, Wellingborough. A cooper coloured beer with a whitish head and lacing. The aroma is fruity with some fizzy notes. The taste is fruity with hints of vinegar but more in a sour acceptable way than a nasty infected way. Some wheaty notes and tastes warm. A bit odd to describe and a bit odd to drink. Score 2.9
Subsequent ratings scored 3.4, 2.0 and 3.0. Average becomes 2.8

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask conditioned at The Woolpack, Banbury, Oxon. Amber gold with White Head. Good sulphery aroma, which was a little off putting for some but good for me. Plenty of rich malt in the body and nicely on the dry side without being astringent. Veggie hop finish, perhaps a little cabbagy, but not bad at all. I enjoyed it.
