2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Frog & Toad Gillingham. The Frog & Toad offers too many beers for a backstreet pub, and the woman serving through a swan neck kept allowing the beer to be sucked back up resulting in an agitated beer and a bit of vinegar gained no doubt from some stale beer in the pipes. The beer is very pale and lacking in substantial character. Mild citric tones and a bit of soft fruit. Dull on this evidence.

Pint from cask at The Gray Horse,Manchester with JR and MEH. Clear golden. Dense and persistent white head. Moderate, and complex malt aroma. Complex malt in taste as well, with malt balanced with some hops in aftertaste. Extremely quaffable and served in fine condition. Perhaps a bit waterishness in mouthfeel.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask at the Express, Kew Bridge, 8th Dec 2010. Bright clear amber with a line of white head. Soft malty nose. Uninspiring watery cold tea taste. Goes down easy but a perfect example of why some people look down on session ales.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On cask at The Congress, Longton. Pours amber with a white foam head. An interesting start, taste of a white paper bag that’s had a 10p mix in it. Grassy middle, flavoursome for a low ABV ale.
