26th January 2015
Craft Clerkenwell. Cask. Almost clear deep red - brown beer. Palate is smooth and semi dry. Modest fine carbonation. Smooth sweetish malts. Bubblegum esters, somewhat spicy. Touch of tangy fruits before a dry and slightly bitter finish. Over dry and a bit stodgy but not bad by any means.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at the Hare and Billet, Blackheath. Ash brown pour, beige head. Hoary, wintery nose of bonfire toffee, figs, dates, sultana, raisin. Red apple and plum pudding flavour. Lots of warmth in this, almost hugworthy. A nice winter warmer, reminds me of the old Gales Festival Mild from yonks back.

Cask at the Cock Tavern - London. A somewhat classic British barley wine: lots of tangy ripe fruits, a bit of old leather, old woody ship. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly warming with lots of tangy fruits, berries, some toffee. A fair effort overall.
