3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask Conditioned, at the Wenlock Arms, London.
Amber with an attractive cask-fresh head. Possibly the beer of the evening along with Hardy’s Kiss. Vanilla and caramel notes complement the deep colour and give and overall sense value. This beer feels big and well rounded in the mouth and is the real deal. Lovely drop.

The Wenlock The great ratebeer meet up for a lock in at The Lock. Yogi, Pivo and Spiesy. Everyone's a bit tired and weary, but Yogi and Spiesy are bouncing off the walls. This was the most challenging rate I've ever done. If Spiesy wasn't thrusting his Britney Spears "Slut" t-shirt in my face, or bowing at my feet, or grabbing the barmaids to kiss and fondle, then Yogi was babbling away with a pixie smile and an infectious enthusiasm, always diverting my attention from the beer in my glass. I managed to note that this had sweetish toffee flavours balanced with mild bitterness, and an old socks aroma, before giving in and surrendering to the moment.
