4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
I urge you all to go and sit in the Pendle Witch pub in Atherton (sandwiched between Wigan and Bolton) owned by Moorhouses. Sup away with your eyes shut and you could be forgiven for thinking you were actually in heaven. I recommend you go to this pub for their beer bash (which is held over the same weekend as the CAMRA Bent and Bongs Beer Bash held in Athertons Formby Hall which starts on the last Thursday of January). Enjoy!

UPDATED: DEC 6, 2008 apple and banana on the nose with a creamy citrus and honey flavour. full of hints of raisins and fruit with a dry bitter finish. I was a bit nervous rating this as was one of the first real ales i ever had. Yep its still as good as always.

UPDATED: JAN 10, 2005 Cask @ Akkurat, Stockholm
Very clear, well kept real ale. Rich head that keeps almost all the way. Malty and a bit on the sweet side. Easily downed. Too easy for this strength, almost.Nice, slightly fruity/flowery aftertaste from the hops. Can I have anothother of this, please, Mr Barman?!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Cask at Oliver Twist, Stockholm) Colour is amber, with a dense off-white head, staying for quite a while. Nose is fruity and sweet (almost honey scented) with apricots, oranges and mandarin. Hints of sewage as well. Taste is fruity with grapefruit and caramel, rather sweet. Ends with a long bitter finish, filled with dusty, flowery hops. Malty, full body. Surprisingly sweet, but I can’t resist the lovely hoppy finish. Refreshing.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
First tasted this at the Boswell Hotel, Glasgow in November 1994. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear gold in colour with a bright luminosity and a thick creamy white head. Slight note of sweet pineapple and caramel in the short nose. Thin but creamy mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malts give a strong shortbread biscuit base with pineapple, lychees and mango fruit. Strong hop presence with spicy bitter resins complimenting the malt well. Finish is warming and smooth with golden syrup and tart gooseberry fruit evident, long in the mouth. An excellent session Strong Ale and highly recommended.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
<i>Cask Conditioned at Doric Arch, London</i>
Hazy amber color. Breadish malt aroma. The aroma is not impressive, but it has a far better flavor (between a 7 and an 8), with good malt, light fruitness, strong bitterness. The final (long and boldly bitter) is lightly metallic. Very good.
