Cask Kings Head Carlisle. Great looking pale amber colour, citrus and biscuit aroma, fresh prickly tangy palate. A little marmalade comes in midway, more orange notes and a nice smack of bitterness in the finish. Great stuff.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask conditioned at The Chequers, Oxford. Hazy gold with white head. Quite a perfumed flavour, fruity, there is a grapefruit hint but along with a slightly sicky note. It was ok but not the hop monster I was hoping for.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hand pulled at the Old Contemptibles, Birmingham. Cloudy amber, thick heading. Smells like toffee - uh oh. Tastes like a standard, mediocre, toffee malt bitter. Particularly sweet on the finish. Some rainwater in subsequent swigs, which is a small mercy. Massive disappointment. Why is this included in an IPA festival?
