2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
July 2008: Reviewed this in a Wetherspoons pub in London, first time I’ve had a cask plum beer. Hand pulled half-pint.
Mid-amber in colour with no head, just a thin white collar around the glass.
Sweet Vitoria Plum smell, sickly in fact.
At first I really liked it, then the sickly sweetness from the aroma came into the taste and mouthfeel. It was just too over the top for me. The beer seemed to get sicklier and sicklier.
Interesting, but not a session beer that’s for sure.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Suppose it’s nice enough but the plum character is way stronger than anything like hops, malt, or anything else that really resembles a beer. Just too fruity and too sweet.

Cask - West Gate Inn (JDW), Canterbury. So perfumy and artificial all round, like potpourri. Just an all out sweetness, no bitterness, no body, no finish. Just about the only thing that resembles a beer is its colour. I struggled even with my 1/3 pint.
