On cask at the Willow Walk as Nethergate Groler bitter? Cool copper colored pour, light straw colored head. Light cereal notes, fresh hops, leafy. Tastes fresh and refreshing, light bready caramel notes, peppery hops, light bitterness. Palate is lightly carbed, nice silky mouthfeel. Well balanced, damn tasty.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
First tasted this in the Boswell Hotel, Glasgow in October 1993. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear pale garnet in colour with a thick off white creamy head. Hint of caramel and cheesecake base in the short aroma. Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malts give a short digestive biscuit base with figs evident. Good smack of hop resins give a tart metallic aftertaste. Finish is robustly sweet and malty with dry oak cask notes present. An ok session bitter.

A Mes rate:
Cask at Baker Street ’Spoons. Darkish amber with a thin film. Perfumey hops in the nose. Creamy in the mouth with plenty of hoppy biterness and some dusty tobacco. Quite tasty.
