On gravity at Swindon BF 30/10/08. Deep gold in colour with next to no head. Sweetish malt aroma with orange fruit, caramel and some spicy hops. Flavour was also sweet, with marmalade, fruit cake and grassy hops. A bit overpowering.

Cask gravity at White Cliffs BF 2011. Very deep ruby colour with lasting beige head. Looks in good condition. Smells herby. Settles down a bit into a solid dark ale. Ends up ok with some raspberry and dark fruits. It got better.

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.

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...

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Gravity cask at White Cliffs/Dover Fest 2011. Perfume aroma - like a garden spray for bugs. hint of plastic and herb. Some bitterness. Doesn’t hold together.
