Cask conditioned at The Live & Let Live, Cambridge. Brown ruby beer with cream head. Thicker bitter with more mouthfeel but relatively sweet too, fruity with a bramble note and a little banana. Clingy sweet on the finish.

Cask conditioned - handpump - Malt Shovel Northampton. A ruby coloured beer with off white bubbles for a head. The aroma is fruity and dry. A bit thin to be honest. The taste is malty with berry fruits. Quite nicely balanced with the hops. Tasty.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Cask. I tried this beer over 3 days. Dark brown with white head. Initially fairly sweet but quite alot of roast barley flavour and bitter aftertaste. After 2 days was less sweet and more bitter and by third very bitter. I found this to be unbalanced, too much roast barley flavour for this type of beer not one of Nethergates best efforts. Better off trying the cask Augustinian Ale.
