1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pint pulled at The Railway in Putney (London), a cloudy orange with an off-white head. Not a great malty aroma, I also get sulphur. A soapy flavour and a bland smoothness in the mouth. Wouldn’t choose it normally, but it was free with my curry.

UPDATED: SEP 28, 2006 Looks and tastes like beer. Back at home (im a student) in my local it takes pride of place on the bar next to its marstons cousins. I like it. Try it. One of my favourite beers!

UPDATED: FEB 7, 2006 Well, this was really bitter when I tasted it, but I guess it is the way people here like beers. A litel red, but with yellow predominance.

Really not sure about this one. I don’t get the "sulphur" aroma. Like drinking rotten eggs. However you soon get used to it and it’s an ok bitter. Often find it in pubs with nothing else on.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Not a bad brew. A lightish amber colour, takes a while to clear to a nice head that lasts well. Certainly quite refreshing, a bit gassy. Quite watery, a little bland, but quite hoppy and slight spice

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Cask, The Wharf, Aalborg) - Distinctive sulphuric hoppy nose/taste, that some people just dont understand, - you poor bastards!!
Very subtle taste with superb balance between malt & hops, and with a refreshingly spicy aftertaste.

Cask @ Norman’s in Soho. Fruity, fresh and refreshingly drinkable. Fragrant hop ending. You have to admire the stability of this beer.

On draught at The Hop Pole; Limpley Stoke: Mid amber colour, thin foamy layer; vinous, sulphuric and fruity nose; moderate fruity (peaches) taste; mild fruity-bitter finish. O.K. and more aromatic than the bottled version.....

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cask conditioned @ Giddy Bridge (JDW), Soton (22/08/05). Toffee and sulphur. After the sulphur the most distinctive feature is a chalky minerally mouthfeel. At first it seemed quite bland but once the flavours appeared it almost made the blandness seem appealing.
