3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask-conditioned at the Three Crowns, Chippenham 16/2/2013. Golden with a slight white head. Crisp, fruity aroma with a touch of sweetness. Flavour had more fruit, and some jarring, buttery sweetness before a moderately bitter finish. Didnít quite work for me.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at The Anchor, Birmingham. Poured a clear amber with a thin white head. The aroma is of big fruit. The first mouthful almost knocked me off my bar stool! Itís weak bitter, but there is loads of fruit and toffee. The palate is smooth and with loads of toffee and caramel. If Thorntonís did drinks, this is what they would taste like. I could drink this all night and some more!
