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

(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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2010 Cask conditioned - handpump - Peacock Nottingham. A copper coloured beer with a creamy sparkled head. The taste and aroma are sulphurous and have a nasty snatchy taste. It is quite a struggle to drink really and is an absolute shadow of what was one of the first real ales I tasted back in the early 1980s which was absolute nectar and gorgeous. Sad really. Score 2.3
Subsequent rating scored 3.0. Average becomes 2.6

Theres a problem with this beer, and its that it changes ever time i drink it. Aroma on this particular occasion was slightly sulphur and lightly hoppy. Taste seems to have taken a walk as i honestly couldnt taste anything. I t went down well but there was no taste, and the aroma didnt help that out. This was after a edvards tiger, and it made that seem full flavoured. Disapointing concidering its wetherspoons house ale in english pubs.
