Cask at Brentwood hotel , Aberdeen. It pours deep golden with a small white head. The nose is toasted grain, sweet, red grape and sticky toffee pudding. The taste is bitter, toasty, grain, lemon peel, soapy edge and gooseberry with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Decent enough.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Gravity dispense at the Happy Man May ’14 BF, Englefield Green, 22/05/14.
Murky orange amber with a moderate off white swirl.
Nose is orchard fruit, green apple, toffee.
Taste follows, straw, earthy stuff, twigometer rising to amber but certainly more in the flavour than the aroma.
Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, drying close.
So so affair.

On tap at the Grosvenor.
Appearance - golden with a nice head.
Nose - very faint lemon and cream.
Taste - a lot more going on. Some tangy orange and malt notes.
Palate - medium bodied with a crunchy texture and a fairly fresh finish.
Overall - yeah this one got better. Always a good motto to perservere.
