2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask at Durham Castle Undercroft Bar, £2/pint.
Brownish amber beer with a fair sized, off-white head. It’s so sugary and has the candied, floral sweetness that seems to run through many GK beers. There’s biscuity, toffee flavours pleasant that are pleasant enough but on the whole it’s too sweet to be a really good bitter.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Backlog. From cask at Prince of Wales, Aberdeen, 04.08.12. Copper in colour with off-white head. Superb aroma of caramel and toffee. Round moutfield, with bitterness, hops, sweetness and caramel balancing perfectly. Served at the temperature such an excellent ale deserves to be served at. Significantly better than the keg version. Slightly bitter aftertaste balancing the sweetness of the middletaste. Sublime, excellent, fantastic, gorgeous. Worth the travel to UK on its own.

Nice hop aroma and amber appearance. Toffee and fruity flavours blend well. A little mild on the palate would be my only concern. Overall good one and easy to drink.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On cask, poured into a shaker. The aroma is a mellow blend of caramel, sweet orange, and candy sugar up front, and then settles to a biscuit and caramel blend. It’s a deep, near clear, copper hue with a full, creamy, dense, off white head that has good retain, and a thick, heavy lace. The taste is a medium light sweet front that blends nicely into a medium bitter finish. The texture is smooth and creamy, but light, with a touch of fizziness to the carbonation. The medium body has a mild cola and sugar flavor, with some spice, and citrus. It finishes with a zip and spice as well as a roasty caramel and floral note. The aftertaste is light, waxy, burnt, with some bread crust, but overall, very mellow.
