3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask at the Devonshire Arms, Cambridge. Golden, clear with almost no head. Apricot, tropical fruit and seawater in the aroma. Strong alcoholic fruity taste. Unfortunately the aftertaste is astringent bordering on acrid so the whole package is brought down a notch.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasted this at the Paisley Beer Festival in April 2000. Cask, gravity dispense. Clear mahogany in colour with a loose white head. Strong over ripe banana aroma, long in intensity. Thick creamy mouthfeel and no lacing. Mixed complex malts give a juicy maltloaf base with rich, sweet creamy toffee pecan pie, mashed banana and maple syrup. There might have been a faint whiff of hop resins in the very brief aftertaste but heavy malt rule here. Finish is rich & heavy on the malt with almost alcoholic rum like notes tasting warming and sweet in the mouth. A superb new English Strong Ale, tasting far stronger and ABV suggests. Highly recommended in cask and worth seeking out. A very popular ale at the festival.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Gravity, Banbury beer festival. Bright gold, translucent white head. Black current, black berry, a bit of husky grain. Light marmalade and berry sweetness, a little thin for all the sweetness, and kind of hot. Not quite up to the usual standards for Milton.
I had this on the Thursday of the festival. I wonder if it settled down and mellowed by the time Fin and Glen had it? Have to find it again...

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask (gravity) at the Lion Inn beer festival, Basford, Nottingham. On the Deep Black stag crawl. A rather up-front flavoured beer; smoky malts, fruity mouthfeel, a little too unsubtle for me to really love it.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at the Bell, Nottingham. This copper beer has an enjoyably rich palate, a floral aroma, and a fruity flavour with lots of lemon.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A red ale with fruity overtones. not as hoppy as I usually like, but a very drinkable red ale with no alcohol burn, nicely balanced
