2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask at the Willow Walk, dark gold with a thin head, a little sweet golden malt on the nose, typical sweetish golden ale on the palate, hints of bitterness in the finish, an interesting but a bit odd toffee-choc note in the sweetness too. OK, but a bit odd.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Colour as per name. Not a huge aroma but just a hint of biscuit which carries through into the flavour. Hopping is quite restrained and it fills the same sort of niche as St. Austell Tribute. Nice rather than brilliant, on top form it would probably be a great session beer.

Hardly any aroma. Good colour and a very slight head. Quite a light colour. Very dry aftertaste.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at The Woodman, Durham, £2.90/pint.
Looked great with copper but crystal clear appearance with lasting white head. Malty, slightly sugary biscuit aroma that carries through into a smooth palate with caramel and ginger malts well balances with mid-length dry finish. Very good.
As a side note I have not yet had a bad pint at this pub under their new ownership. All the ales have been superbly conditioned.
