3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask @ The Kingston Arms, Cambridge. Pours a glorious light amber color with a small, tight creamy white head. This looks about as attractive as a bitter can be. The nose is mildly floral hops, some toffee and spun sugar. The tastee is red berries, bouncy toffee and earthy twig. Just a bit of floral hoppy bitterness on the dry finish. Simple flavors, but well integrated. Overall, pretty nice.

Cask at The Cambridge Blue, Cambridge 15.02.12 Amber in colour with a lively white head, in fact this looks excellent. Decently hoppy but with a slight caramel undertow. Don’t get the floral characteristics but it isn’t a bad beer at all. A6 A5 T7 P4 Ov13 3.5

Cask at the Magpie && Crown, dark copper with a big fluffy cream head and aromas of peppery hops and malt. Crisp and hoppy with a good balancing malt chewiness, and a dry peppery finish. Very more-ish.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask-conditioned at the Victoria, Clifton, Bristol 12/07/09. Amber with a moderate white head. Orange fruit aroma with some floral hops. Flavour was a head on collision between some pleasant marmalade malts and roasted malts, which verged on being smokey. Initially this was a train wreck, but my palate adjusted and the pint tasted better the more that was drunk. Still strange though.

Cask handpull at the Fuggles Cafe (brewtap), Bedlington, Northumberland. Burnished amber with a creamy white lid. Faint leafy hop, orange citrus and white grape aroma. Creamy and sweet with a gelatinous soft orange and grapey tang hinting at NZ hops. Lemon and lime jelly, long sweet retronasal digestives and vanlla. Hardly any carbonation. Nice.
