2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Half, cask in perfect condition and served at the right drinking temperature at the Halfway House - a gem of a small pub in central Edinburgh. Copper-amber body. No head, but nice lacework on the glass. Floral fruity smell. Fruity taste with dry apricot and developing bitterness to the ending. Rounded and refreshing. 24.10.2008.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at Charlie’s Bar, Copenhagen. A slightly hazy golden beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet malty with flowery notes of hops. The flavor is sweet malty again with flowery notes of hops as well as light notes of elderberries, leading to a bitter finish. The body is thin. Quite refreshing - nice session beer.

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.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Draught. Small white head. Clear golden body. Roasted malt aroma. Very light and easy to drink. Too ananomous with insuffiicient bitterness. A disapointment.
