2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Decent, but uninspiring stuff. Even allowing for a heavy cold, aroma was almost entirely lacking. Nothing came through very strongly at all. One the palate, well balanced, with a quite full body, but, again, nothing very noteworthy. Rather disappointing really for a brewery that specialises in recreating lost beers that are worth reviving. Perhaps this one was never that inspiring in the first place. Cask, Pigs Ear Beer Fest, East London, December 2003.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Gravity fresh @ Pig's Ear Festival, East London. A well made but not exciting bitter. Normal amber colour. A light caramel aroma. Not much hop awareness. A decent, but dull bitter.
