3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Half pint from the brewpub: poured orange yellow with a fizzy white head. Earthy hop aroma with light candyish notes. Mild earthiness in the flavor with some citrus and a bit of sourness. Doesn’t taste like 7.2%. Smooth bitter finish. Okay.

Cask at the NWAF, Manchester, 2012. Bright yellow/gold pour with a white head. Syrupy nose, pear drops and mango in the aroma. Honey and mango flavour with a spicy, grassy feel. Throat warmer. Long fruit filled finish. Very nice indeed.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask - Dartford WMC. Pours dark yellow with a small white head. Quite thick and oily in the glass. Orange peel, piney hops and lemon on the nose. Strong grapefruit flavours, backed by resiny, lemon hops a rich caramel note and biscuity malts, also with a hint of its alcohol content. Smooth palate texture, low carbonation gives quite a crisp, refreshing mouthfeel despite the ABV with a final lingering bitterness.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cask@oe13. Yellow hazy. Estery nose. Some ripe banana, some yeast. Full bdied, slight oily. Doesn’t really feel that boozy, but does feel like getting it boozy was more important than flavour here. Like kilju with some finesse.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Gravity, ’08 Merton Summer Festival. Ultra pale gold, soapy white head. Bright flowery nose with blackberries. Caramel sweetness tangled up with dried flowers, hint of mineral oil. Very light body. Fresh and good, but doesn’t make all that much use of it’s strength. For the level of interest here, why not drink the 4% bitter it tastes like?
