Whoa, looks like this one’s been out of commission for a while. Cask @ Wetherspoons in Hammersmith. The pour’s light amber with a tiny white head. The aroma’s honeyed bread, spring rain meadow, crisp breakfast cereal. The taste is light lemon shortbread, some white grape. Delicate orchard fruit flavors. Nice light malt body. Some cake. Floral herb finish. Light body, soft carbonation. Overall, this is actually pretty good. Understated.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: APR 27, 2007 Impressively lacy half at The Merchant Beer Festival, Rugby. Slight yellowish haze. Opens with an unsubtle gust of watercress pepperiness. And that’s not a hop metaphor, it’s the real thing. Not unpleasant, but completely one-dimensional. A touch of biscuity afters. Sourish. Zzzz. Bonus point for stirring something unusual into the mash tun.

Cask conditioned @ The Black Boy, Winchester. Pale copper. Lightly malty aromas with a slight toffee/biscuity aspect. Some general herbal hop aromas which may have came from the Watercress added - although when I drank it I didnt realise any unusual ingredients had been added. Slightly sweet with a relexed bitterness. This was quite pleasant but the sweet malty focus based on pale malts doesn’t really excite me.
