2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Amber with slight head. Malty, caramel, toffee notes with a slightly sour background, the signature flavour of this pub. Dull and lifeless, but at least drinkable.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The Felix Holt, Nuneaton. Orange-gold with a fluffy white lid. That soft vanilla/woodsy Marstons smell, with added orange. Vanilla to the fore, pale nuttiness, house minerals. A bit grassy but unmistakably Marstons. Alright.
