3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Gravity cask at the Pembury Tavern on 16th July during their festival. Brown bitter, poured crystal clear with a short-lived effervescent off-white head of little or no lacing. Sweetish malt aromas slightly override the hoppy notes which are citric in nature with lemony undertones. Watery texture, dryish finish best appreciated with long pauses between substantial sips.

Cask conditioned handpump Salutation Inn Nottingham. An amber coloured beer with a whitish head and a little lace. The aroma has some reasonable fruitiness which develops in the mouth together with a hint of spice. Malty and passable.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask (gravity dispense) at the Pembury Tavern on 26 February 2011 (noted at 4.1% but it was only a hand-written cask end label so may have been wrong). Deep copper colour - slightly darker than the Leatherbritches Dovedale drunk at the same time. Quite light body - the darker colour may have suggested something a little more substantial. Some spicy hops. A solid, if unspectacular, session bitter.
