Cask, at the Devonshire Arms, Cambridge. Fantastic. One of the best Milton beers I’ve had - great malt / hop balance, with real hoppy attitude.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask conditioned at The Turf Tavern, Oxford. Amber with white head. Initially quite heavy on the toffee / caramel front, which then gives way to a little alcohol burn. Some sharpish hop notes with grapefruit pith showing through. Expected a little more from these.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at the Pembury Tavern, March 2007. Didn’t seem very pale to me. Sort of orangey ginger colour. Slight oily hop aroma. Also some fruity, estery notes reminiscent of bubblegum or even wine gums. Quite flowery hops in the flavour with orange flesh / peel and some sweetish crystallised fruit. I can see what Mes is getting at with marmalade. Fairly light mouthfeel for 5.6% with only a modest bitterness. Certainly a tasty beer but maybe a touch short of grip. Pretty good anyway.

Cask - White Cliffs Festival 2010, Dover. A ruddy copper coloured beer with a pencil thin bubbly head and just a touch of body carbonation. Orange, apple peel and yeast on the nose but all a bit muddy. Sweet orange and toffee notes with a pithy bitterness. Strong and dry bitter finish, a medium body and soft mouthfeel.

A Mes rate:
Cask at the Pembury Tavern. Wow, was not expecting this. Surprised the rates for this so for are a little lacklustre. Thought it was really well balanced and tasty. Great notes of marmalade and marzipan (Battenburg) in the flavour. Finish is hoppy and rather great. In fact the hops creap in in waves. Lovely and creamy. Bags of character for and English beer.

Cask handpull at Pembury Tavern, Hackney. Amber colour with bubbly beige head. Some hop, bit of staleness, but is soon fades (was actually towards end of barrel, went off soon afterwards). Whisky malt in mouth, similar in flavour to the Sparta, nice tangerine. Good strong bitter, dryish finish. Another well made beer from Milton
