3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask, gravity, at Bedford BF ’08. Copper. Musty, dusty, resiny aroma: a description that does it no justice. Very evocative, but of what exactly I do not know. Rough sourness and aggressive malt dominates, with some pear fruit perhaps. Some bitterness. Not a pretty beer, but engaging in a challenging sort of way.

Cask at the Chestnut Tree, Sherwood, Nottingham. This has a pleasing copper colour with plenty of malt. There’s lots of caramel and roasted flavours with some floral hops on the finish. I wouldn’t go out of my way to have it again, but it’s not at all bad.

Cask handpull at Market Porter, Borough Market. Gold/copper with thin beige head. Watery bitter. Sometimes I despair of this pub and the condition of some of the beer. Some rose petal fruit, some stingy hop on end. Rose petal fruit is good. Perfumey.

Cask Conditioned, at the Market Porter, Borough, London .
Amber body.....umm....the flavours not the best but not the worst either. The prospect of another helped me through this odd beer. I couldn’t help think that the flavour delivered was not what its created had intended.
