15th February 2008
An extraodinary bitter! Light and clear and with an intense sweet malt and grapefruit followed by sweet peach and raspberry (peach melba!) notes. Very moorish.

Muddy deep blond color. Light aroma, earthy, light manure. Malty flavor, with a light grainy touch, some pleasant sweetness, light cookies, correct bitterness, quite good hopping. Good.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 4/20
Dark golden with a short head. Sugars and grass in the scent. Lots of sugars in the mouth, with a malty taste and not much bitterness. Sulphuric aftertaste, indicating it might not have been in a good state.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clearish light orange body is covered by a fading off-white head. Not so aromatic this one, but well placed ingredients including firm malts with just balancing floral and leafy hops. Highly drinkable, faultless, but perhaps a bit too straightforward and unexciting.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber colour. Too much butterscotch in the aroma for my liking, but it’s not too intrusive in the flavour, which is dry, slightly citric and reasonably fresh. Not bad, but I didn’t think it packed a lot of punch for a strong bitter. Cask (handpump), Ale wagon, Leicester (RB Leicester pub crawl).

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at Ale Wagon, Leicester, RB Crawl 2005. Ready for the echo? Caramel; in the nose, on the lips. Rough malts to start with, sweet notes to play with; a good chewy mouthful.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hand pulled at the Ale Wagon, Leicester (RB crawl). Oh dear, the first pub of the day and already the notes are going awry. All I have written down for this one is: butterscotch start then fiery dryness. I think because Chris_o was going on about his loathing for butterscotch, I may have got sidetracked... My short summary then is that this beer’s thin and fairly boring.
