3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask sampled @ St. Arnolds Day Beer Festival 2013, The Old Wine Vaults, Faversham.
Practically clear, deep golden to amber body with a small, lacing off-white head. Quite nice, fruity aroma with a hint of caramel. Flavor is smooth malty, light fruity and moderate bitter. Medium body and aftertaste. Classic, drinkable, and a bit boring plain British bitter.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at the Sussex Arms, Twickenham Green, 12/01/13.
Clear dark amber with a decent off white head that retains well. Good lacing ensues.
Nose is pale malts, cardboard, touch of grass, light caramel notes.
Taste follows aroma - a little bland but more depth than the nose, biscuit notes, caramel.
Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, dry and bitter in the finish.
