3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask, gravity, at Bedford Beer Festival ’10. Copper gold. Glorious aroma of biscuity sponge and lemon custard. Sweet crusty taste. Mid to sharp bitterness. Good as the winter sponge pudding they used to serve in some primary schools..

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Cask at Oakdale Arms, Harringay, London, 24 April 2008) Dark amber colour with brief, white head. Suspiciously cloudy. Fruity nose with notes of orange peel and earthy, slightly citrussy hops. Fruity taste with citrus, nuts, toffee and balanced amounts of earthy hops in the moderately bitter finish. Light body. Decent session beer, but hardly exciting.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This used to be my regular drink at the St. Radegund (Cambridge) before it was sadly taken off in early 2007. A medium-coloured bitter that, when on form, has a complex and refreshing flavour. For me, a mixture of fruits, barley and even slightly nutty - also quite strongly bitter. It does seem to be tricky to keep, probably due to the low APV. Probably most easily found at the Oakdale Arms (Harringay, London) or Coalheavers (Peterborough)?

UPDATED: SEP 2, 2007 cask @ 2nd pembury festival. Light gold with a white head. Barely there aroma of hops and fruit with some sweet buttery brown sugar. Bitter hoppy taste. Quite dry. Rather boring.

Cask handpull at Pembury Tavern March BF 07. Gold/copper colour with lasting beige head. Earthy hop, some toffeeish malt on aroma. Pleasant in mouth. Some crisp drying hop on finish. Pleasant drinkable session bitter. First of the day.

UPDATED: OCT 4, 2006 Cask stillage from the cellar at the Prince Of Wales, Foxfield 29/10/2005.
Not sure this beer was quite ready as it was hazy in appearance and acidic sulphur was also evident. Must try this one again when it’s on form.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask conditioned - gravity dispense - Bedford BF. A bright and shining copper coloured beer with some hop in the aroma but also a little amount of sulphur. The taste is a little bitter with some light hoppiness. A clean and tasty beer; nice for its ABV.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask (gravity dispense). Beer #7 at Bedford Beer Festival 2005. A pale amber coloured basic session bitter. Light and dry, with some earthy hops, gentle bitterness and hints of smoky malt. No huge depth of flavour, as one might expect from a beer of this strength, but quite well done and eminently fit for the purpose intended.
