3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask, Far From The Madding Crowd, Oxford. Red amber. Fine tan cap of foam. Plumy caramel malt, a touch of apples, rich, soft, attractive. Full malty richness, but enough rustic hop edge to reinforce the finish. Subtle autumn fruit esters. A nice malt-centric ale, in really good shape. Rating 600 for me. In the pleasant company of imdownthepub and the crowd from Banbury.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at the Old Contemptibles, Birmingham. Poured a lovely reddish brown with a broken off-white head. The aroma is rich and malty leading to a medium bitter flavour with lots of liqourice and caramel. The bitterness sits nicely on the palate and into the aftertaste for a truly heart warming and refreshing ale.

Cask (somewhere in Helsinki)
Nutty brown colour - and the flavour delivers everything the look promises, and more. Hazelnuts, full fruitiness, maybe apple, and loads of malt.
