Slightly mashy aroma. Quite fruity, almost citrussy retronasals. Rich palate, full, soft carbonation. Yup, definitely fruity in the mouth. Sweet, a bit touch caramelly. Nice roast, touch of wood. Pretty tasty rich ale.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hand pulled at the Old Contemptibles, Birmingham. Ooh, this was disappointing. Over tart, with a bundle of my least favourite UK cask characteristics: sickly malt, sour tinges in all the wrong places etc. Tastes far too strong, even though it isnít.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours reddish brown with good clarity. Thin head. Nose is very good. Lots of citrous, grapefruit, lemon. Taste is citrous and fruity with caramel malt. Interestingly though, it doesnít have much kick on the finish and is fairly light in flavour on the palate. Great nose and first taste and then tends to be quite subtle on the palate. No big fruit kick so a good session beer. Good refreshing bitter though and out of the ordinary.
