2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Cask at Edgar Wallace, Strand, London, 23 Nov 2011) Golden amber colour with brief, white head. Fruity nose with notes of citrus and hints of vinegar. Fruity, slightly malty taste with citrus, grapefruit, biscuity malt and a touch of acidity coming through. Thin body, with a touch of sweetness. Doubtful about the form of this one.

Cask at the Old Manor (JDW), Bracknell. Amber with a thin white head; surprisingly full bodied, with a sweet biscuity malt flavour and a touch of caramel; then some light dry hops before a toasty finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Smell and taste are typical of an English bitter, a little caramel malt, a pinch of hops and some fruity notes. Some hop masters is definitely not, and some Cascade hops is not noticed, but it sure is easy to drink and it has refreshing hop tones. Taste wise, the beer is a little better than an ordinary bitter.

Cask @ The State Bar. Clear golden colour, off-white head. Nose is caramel malts, slight vegetables. Flavour is light malted, vegetables, bit of citrs upfront, followed by biscuit. Slightly bitter finish. Pretty average, and definitely not a ’hopmeister’.
