Cask, Pure Bar, Birmingham, 26/03/14. Honey amber with a creamy white collar. Nose involves fresh resiny pine, leather and grapefruit. Balanced moderate pine and grapefruit overtaken by husky lingering malt and biscuit. Touches of smoke. Plenty of punch at the ABV- certainly more IPA than ESB.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at Southwark Tavern. It’s a mostly clear dark orange, just slightly hazy, still, small white bubbly head. Smell - toned down orange, what I call ’cheesy’ hops. Body is medium, low carbonation, quite smooth. Taste is pretty nice - lots of tangy marmalade with an assertive musty bitterness bordering on sour. The resinous finish makes this a bit of a slower drinking experience. Decent.
