2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On cask at the Five Lamps (Derby)
I have almost run out of new things to try at the Five Lamps but this was at least something. A so-so beer was OK for a while but even before the half pint was empty I was ready to walk down to the next pub. This is an average beer on a great day; on a bad one it is just drinkable.
Aroma / Appearance - A golden bronze base sits idly in the glass. A wispy ring of head isnít much help in salvaging a good look. Sweet cider sticks in the air but it feels half hearted. The worst part is the tang of pickle relish that feels way out of place.
Flavor / Palate - A light caramel bitterness almost salvages a forgettable first impression. Soft and bland it fades mercifully quickly. The tea like finish is not even as good as a well made glass of tea would have been. I found it hard to drink more than just a couple of ounces before tiring.

Not bad. Light copper pour, with a fizzy, fast disappearing head. Light nose. A bit sour at first, with some biscuit and metallic notes. Decent hopping as it warms. Nothing offensive and it all kind of works.

500ml bottle - amber pour, white head with a citrus nose - perhaps oranges. Acidic first taste, a bit metallic, then into some dried fruit notes. Lingering bitter afterwards. Not bad, but Kelham do so much better than this!

Cask conditioned handpump Wig & Pen Northampton 10/07/12. A darkish gold coloured beer with a whitish head and lacing. A clean light beer. Sweetness just dominates the hops, although there are signs of light citrus. Has a lemongrass note to it. Otherwise quite plain really.
