3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On cask at Uno’s. Aroma is delicious applesauce, waffles, and a mild pine hop. Pours beautifully bronze with a huge cascading white head. Mustache. Taste is solid with similar red apple peel, mossy notes. Nice biscuit finish. Kicked the keg so I got an extra glass. Score.

Bottle. Poured a beautiful roasted amber colour, with short-lived sea foam head. Aromas of caramel, malts, molasses, some smoke. Rounded mouthfeel with slightly fizzy carbonation. Bitter, but not hugely so, with sweet undertones. Got a muddy taste coming through halfway down the bottle.

Nice amber colour with rich foamy head. Smooth beer that fails to deliver any significant flavour. Average.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice, red colored beer. Almost no foam while pouring it in, but it has a nice sweet aroma. It tastes very bitter, met something fruity in the end. The aftertaste is somewhat sweet, but turns bitter.
Mooi, roodkleurig bier. Weinig tot geen schuimkraag, maar wel een lekker zoet aroma met in de verte een vleugje alcohol. De smaak is vol bitter met in de verte iets fruitigs. De nasmaak is in het begin lichtzoet, maar wordt daarna ook bitter.

Considering the fact that we were expecting a lot from this beer, it relativity disappointed us. therefore, it may be a good beer but it’s not really our taste.

Cask (Everywhere in Cambridge)
A classic strong English bitter. Delicious, a favourite while living in Oxford in the 80s. Now horribly emasculated by Greene King, and having taken on the GK house taste, losing the fullness of the malts. The subsequent weakening that took place ... for that, read the 4.5% review...

I really like old speckled hen, I get burnt toasted flavours and very woody undertone ... One of my favourites

Smells slightly toasted, with hints of chocolate. Burned taste, with tones of dates, caramel, coffee and possibly oak (?). The aftertaste lacks a bit of character, but is decent; it is slightly roasted and dominated by hops.
