3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask pint on 18th Oct 2014 in The Crown, Oxford, sat in the yard actually. Creamy off-white head on top of a clear mahogany/amber body. Aroma of semi-sweet malts with a few fruity hints. The taste was a lot more malty than hoppy with a light sweetness, again complimented by some fruit notes. Suited my sweet tooth nicely.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask. Dark amber orange, slight haze, still, small creamy off-white head, light lacing. Aroma is light with some mustiness. Body is light with a touch of carbonation, quite foamy. Taste is more mustiness, ash, dry and woody, almond skins, resin and glue. Strong hop character, but not in a very balanced way.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at the Elephant and Castle W2. Deep reddish amber brown in colour, thick head. Full flavoured indeed, sweet and a bit boozy, firm luscious malt, fruity, bitter finish balances it well. I’ve not always been a Moles fan but this was nice.
