1.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Cask at The Brewery Tap, Chester on 7 Dec 2012. Poured a very hazy golden colour, with a scummy white head. Very unappealing aroma; sulphur in there, masked some wet grass and flat malt. Flavours weren’t too bad; not exciting, but palatable malty, fruity notes. Finish was boiled sweets, grain and a little bitterness.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cask at Baxter’s Court, JDW, London. Pours clear gold with a small, white cream head. Doughy pale malt nose. Light to medium sweet with notes of hay and plastic. Light bodied with soft carbonation. Light sweetness at the end with moderate straw and faint plastic bitterness. A mediocre beer that seems to be in rather poor shape - or perhaps it’s just a downright bad beer. Who knows...
