3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. A minimal sized off-white to white head sits on top of a lightly unclear golden body. The aroma has some bready, almost toffee-like maltyness, as well as fruityness and some resin. The flavor has the same bready, toffee-like maltyness, followed by fruityness and some bitterness. Medium body, quite dry. Nice bitterness in the end. Overall, a quite decent one, session style. 120217

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Competent but difficult to say much more than that. Has the typical south-western harsh bitterness with a hint of toffee and not a huge aroma. Pretty middle of the road.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask conditioned at A Wetherspoons. Amber with white head. Sweetish toffee caramel maltiness with a restrained leafy hop note. Never becomes bitter enough for a sessionable beer. A little drab.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at the White Hart, Tongham - just down the road from the Hogs Back Brewery. Hazy pale amber with a loose cream head; fruity malt aroma; crisp fruity malt flavour with some apple and apricot; gentle but strongly bitter finish, leaving a classic English hop taste. An excellent ordinary bitter.
