3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
7th August 2009
GBBF. Cask. Clear gold beer. Softish palate, slightly dry and a little silky. Light hop but full on flavour. Mild grassy grapefruit. Some mandarin orange and a little pineapple. Mild minerals. Not much malt character. Quite a warming finish.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Would not get this again
It's to weak in taste for me
For a 7.5 it's not a strong as I was expecting

On cask at the 2012 NWAF, Manchester. Pours a blonde colour with a thin white head. Aroma of alcohol, caramel, oak, candy sugar and grassy hops. Similar flavours with candy sugar and alcohol both quite prominent. Just a little sweet. Mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. OK.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at Our Mutual Friend, Stevenage. Straw with a thin cream head; sweet and grainy aroma; smooth oily texture, swet and grainy flavour with a hint of tropical fruit; the finish is dry with some quinine bitterness and warming, spicy, alcohol. More of a Barley Wine in my opinion.
