Cask handpull at Wenlock Arms. Bit buttery, not great. Bit of biscuit and bitterness, but the butteryness puts me off.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask conditioned at Banbury Beer Fest ’08. Copper colour with slight head. Big honeyed caramel flavour with butterscotch, a little too flabby with honey sweetness thrown in. Some light hop in the finish, but not my sort of beer.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask @ The Wenlock Arms, London.
Pours a wonderful golden amber with a small bubbly white head. Aroma has caramel, subdued soft hops. Low carbonation, and a bit thin. Flavour is rather sweet, good caramel and light dry hops. Didn’t really strike a chord with me.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A Mes rate: Cask at the Wenlock.
Copper gold with a thin bubbly head. A little vanilla and diacetyl in the aroma but it gets away with it thanks to some nice crisp hops and earthy malt. Glorious fruity flavour with more of the lovely earthy and citric notes and none of the bad stuff of the aroma. Nice clean mouthfeel. Good bitter and peaty finish. Lovely.
