3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap @ the Haymarket. Pours a dark golden colour with a nice head. The nose has grass, maybe lemon on the end. The taste is of coffee grinds, cream and more coffee on the end. The palate is drying and lacking bitterness. Overall, too coffee for me but it grows!

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask @ The Windsor Castle. Medium amber color with a creamy white head. The nose is faint sugary breakfast cereal, some toffee and strawberry. Not particularly engaging. The taste is more caramel malts, light watery fruit and bread. Medium body, soft. Fairly standard.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On cask at the Haymarket. Pours a dark golden colour with a fair white head. A malty aroma of Weetabix, caramel and black pepper. Similar flavours with mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. A little dry to finish.
