2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask at ’Spoons, Milton Keynes. Gold with a white head. Sulphurous nose. Biscuity malt taste with some light bitterness to finish. Not very exciting at all. Rather against the grain, I’ve rated three previous Mordue beers at 4.0, 3.7 and 3.7. This, in my opinion, is by far the poorest.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A Mes rate: Cask at Victoria Station JDW. Tastes like cold tea to me. Notes of fresh hops that are almost sweet, yes I know it’s an oxymoron but whatever. Reasonable bitter finish. Unpleasant off character in the aroma.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask Conditioned @ Standing Order (JDW), Soton. Very light malt, hops quite vague which leaves the slight sulphurous yeast the main focus. Fairly dry and moderately refreshing but the yeast is present throughout.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask handpull at Wetherspoon’s Folkestone. Slight haze with a copper colour and a bubbly beige head. Quite a lovely hop aroma, bit of malty fruit. Malt is a little syrupy in mouth. Palate is odd. Bit medicinal. Finish has goodish hop, drying. Shame, as I like Mordue beers, but th malt isn’t right on this and the hop is too drying on the end to be balanced.

Draught. Small white head. Clear golden body. Roasted malt aroma. Very light and easy to drink. Too ananomous with insuffiicient bitterness. A disapointment.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: NOV 26, 2009 August, 2004 Hand pump. GBBF. Clean, crisp session bitter. Some dusty hops. Refreshing and dry. Tasty enough. [3.1]
Nov, 2009 JDW, Rochester. Pale biscuity sweet session bitter with floral hops, hint of citric fruit and blackberries. Very nice - perhaps a touch too sweet. [3.1]
