3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask (Cambridge Blue, Cambridge)
Toffee aroma. Whisky woody aroma too, and in the retronasals. Sweet, a touch alcoholic. Fairly mellow malts, but a bit too boozy, in particular considering the strength.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cask, gravity, at The Pig íní Falcon, St Neots, Cambridgeshire, in the Pigís Winter Festival í11. Amber. Curious aroma suggestive of starched linen.Taste has malt and a distinct sweet fruitiness. Maybe strawberries. Some bitterness. No sign of the liquorice promised in the tasting notes. Howard Town beers are unusual and quirky, but so far I havenít found one I really liked.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask (gravity dispense) at Pigs Ear Beer Festival, December 2008. A darker coloured, fairly string bitter with some sharp berry fruit character and a modicum of chalky hops. Good condition. Quite well balanced. Solid without standing out from the crowd.
