3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at the Knott, Manchester.
Colden beer, pleasantly drinkable.
Well balanced between the malt and the bitterness, but nothing to make it really stand out.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask in Marble, Manchester at the beer’s launch party. Rich, strong hop and bitter aroma and taste with a good balancing maltiness and a very drying finish. Apparently they may tweak the recipe a bit, but it’s OK by me...

Cask @ The Marble Arch Inn, Manchester, UK 26 Jan 2005
According to Camra National Winter Ale Festival programme this is to replace Cloudy Marble and N4. It’s very hoppy. Pleasant initially, but a bit overwhelming in the end. Still it had a slight sweetness. Amazing for a beer at this strength. Maybe served a bit young.
