Pints aplenty at The Sad Hog Tavern. Fresh, fruity, strawberryish hops. A nibble of leaf. Clear reddish pint with a well-retained creamy head. Moreish, malty, refreshingly hoppy sessions.

A Mes rate:
From a JDW. Diacetyl and iron filings. Pretty awful if you ask me. Something very gents toilets about it. Acrid and pretty close to vile.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cask at The Three Tuns, Biddenham, Bedfordshire. Amber with a small cream head. Hop and malt aroma. Taste begins quite malty and biscuity, but a watery middle fails to deliver the expected bitter finish. Not bad, but some ingredients missing.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask Conditioned at The Cock, Combe, Oxon. Orange amber beer with bubbly head. To be honest G.K have improved on the original, this is a decent autiumn type malty bitter drunk in a very pretty old pub on the quiet end of Blenheim Palace. Sweetly drinkable but still not a great beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
March, 2004: JDW Welling Woody amber colour with a fair spread of frothy and clinging bubbles. The base is quite dry, but playing alongside and just on top is a velvet sweetness. Vanilla icecream is one of the initial flavours with some rusty and nutty notes mingling attractively. There’s fruit which evades pining down, and a pleasant low bitterness which increases slightly in the finish before settling on a stewed note. Pleasant, with some character, but nothing special. [3.0]
March, 2005:Ropemaker’s Arms, Chatham. Slightly sweet and sticky toffe accented best bitter with a soft lingering earthy finish. [3.1]
