Cask @ Charlies, Cph.
Pours clear amber with no head. Sweet caramel aroma, light maltiness, but generally rather weak. Low carbonation, fine oily mouthfeel. Flavour is heavy sweet, lots of caramel, light sugar. The finish just about saves it with quite dry hoppiness.

Tinned peaches on the nose, blunt bitter palate without hop flavours, more tinned peaches on the palate....was hoping for more from this because in the bottle i think this was my first introduction to the world of hops!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
[cask at Monks Retreat, Reading] Amber, slight white head, slight carbonation. Dry spicy bitterness up front, followed by some straw and a light and sweet fruitiness - orange and peach?. Some wood comes through in the tail, with a dry finish. Recognisable Marstons flavour, but - surprisingly - this is a decent beer, and I enjoyed it more than I normally would for something this dry and bitter.
