3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Old BA rate - cask)
Completely see-through light brownish color with a bit of gold in the color. Nearly pure white head. Good, but not excellent lacing. Fairly bland aromas, with some fruit (apples?) with not a whole lot going on. Really no hop aromas. Taste is pretty basic. Malt and fruitiness are pretty well balanced, but I was expecting a bit more hop given the style. Fairly thin, of course no carbonation given cask serving, and a bit more watery than I would like for the style. Pretty decent drinking as it wasn’t too hard to take down the sample. But it left me wanting for taste.

Cask at the Wheatsheaf Hotel near Chatsworth. Light amber color. Malt, a bit of citrus, and hop aroma. Very good balance, with nice, carmelly malt and decent though not very strong hops. Very nice.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
The Merry Monk, Kirton. Clear amber in colour with a large, creamy white head. Subdued floral and citric nose along with some general fruity malts. Quite sweet on the tongue; a fruity maltiness with butterscotch flavours and a bitter citrusy finish. Smooth and easy on the palate; refreshing and highly quaffable as a session beer.

Cockermouth he he he. Can’t remember much about this as I was very very drunk but remember thinking thank god I don’t have to have Carling. It was ok, could have been worse but wasn’t great. Gold with a thick white head. Drinkable enough but nothing to get jimmy out over.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
[Cask at Burnt Oak, Milton Keynes] A pale orangey brown bitter with a slight white head. Decent enough earthy hops, some malt, a moderate bitterness. Overall enjoyable enough, easy to drink, but an average, and fairly forgettable bitter.
