3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask (gravity dispense) at Battersea Beer Festival on 10 February 2011. Mid-gold in colour. Very good condition. Sweetish and sherbety, with plenty of flowery hop - tropical fruit (pineapple?). Flavoursome but balance seemed a little off kilter - seemed a touch short of grip and bite. Still quite likeable.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask conditioned at Minehead Beer Fest ’11. Gold with white head. Malty, buttery beer, thin and not terribly exciting. A little to light for my taste.

Cask at Battersea Beer Festival, 10th Feb 2011. Bright gold, no head. Nose has a fruity, sherbet note when agitated. Overly sweet, somewhat artificial bubblegum taste. Strange.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask in the Market Porter. Alround rating: Pale and caramel malts, very fruity orange and a bit of pineapple(not perhaps in the best of contexts), yeasty esters, bit of buttery fruit? Still quite drinkable stuff.
