3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at Potters Bar, Meir Heath (Marstonís) A clear ruby brown colour with a medium off white head. Aroma of roasted malts, toffee, raisin, dark fruits, a little toast and some liquorice. Taste is similar of roasted malts, caramel, raisin, dark fruits, some spicy cherry, liquorice, subtle coffee and some woody, earthy hops. Medium bodied and an oily texture. A toffee sweetness with a earthy bitterness in the finish. The best beer from Jennings. A warming, malty old ale, nice.

Cask at the Kings TUn JDW, deep mahogany with a lasting coarse ivory head, a roasty nose with notes of toffee and dark marmalade carries through onto the palate. Warming with Seville orange, burnt caramel, an earthy bitterness and light spicy woody notes. A favourite of mine in bottle, itís great to see it is even better on cask.

Very warming ale. Full of flavour. Licorice, and dark fruits to the fore. Spot on carbonation. I have shunned this in the past when itís been on at the local pub but never again. Lovely.

Cask, Sun Inn Pooley Bridge. My favourite old ale. Dark with a light creamy head that clings to the glass to the finish. Licorice, caramel, coffee taste with a smooth finish. Great in winter in front of a log fire, but I can also drink year round. Excellent.
