3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at the Victoria, Rugby - 12/12/12.
Clear mid golden with a decent white head. Excellent lacing follows.
Nose is a little muted, light fruit, hops, touch of soap.
Taste pretty much marries the nose, light mineral tones, touch of mandarin.
Medium bodied with soft carbonation.
Drinkable but most certainly in the Whelmning bracket !

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Amber with a small white head. Curious aroma: metallic at first, then plastic and cardboard. Like... the interior of a cheap suitcase. Taste is really much the same, except there’s a suggestion of tomato soup. Some bitterness. Very peculiar beer. Wouldn’t want another, but I’m pleased I tried it.
