3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask conditioned handpump Eastgate Northampton 01/11/12 An amber coloured beer with a whitish head. Full of Burton snatch in nose with nowt else. It’s in the mouth too but it’s joined there by a pleasant fruity hoppiness. Some real sweet fruitiness in this which is pretty characterful and tasty. I quite liked this.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A cloudy, amber beer with not much scent. It’s got a clean, bitter flavour but there’s not a lot to it. Drinkable but unmemorable.
