3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask conditioned at the Inn on the Green, Bristol. Bronze coloured with minimal head. This was quaffable despite its strength. The aroma was of sweet malts and red fruit. The flavour was of caramel although with some supporting dry hoppiness. There was quite a pronounced sweet aftertaste. Not bad.

Cask at GBBF 2006. Hazy amber. Little bit of weird yeast on teh aroma. Bit of fruit in mouth. Some dryness on end. Odd. Very drinkable and you can see that you would drink a lot of it even at 5%

UPDATED: JUL 19, 2006 Jul 06 Having tried this quite recently and found it pleasant I gave it another go when I saw it @ South Western Arms. Lotf of toffee and diacetyl. Sweet without balancing hops and no focus other than toffeish diacetyl. Must be quite a variable beer for such a marked difference .2.0
May 06 Gravity cask @ Greyhound Inn Beer Festival, Corfe Castle. Rounded citric hops and biscuity malts. Very drinkable. 3.5

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
In common with a number of Palmers beers I tried on this trip to Dorset, there was quite a dollop of residual sweetness. But they generally also had an earthy, vaguely rustic feel to them which didn’t really combine too well with the sweetness, resulting in a quite unusual mouthfeel that I found a bit disarming. Full bodied, with a hint of sharpness on the finish but not really enough to distract from the sweetness, which I found slightly cloying by the end of the pint. That was a shame as, to start off with, there were plenty of interesting angles to this beer. Rich copper colour. The aroma is quite restrained with hints of fruit and maybe a slight vinous edge. Very fruity flavour, but there’s a solid malt backbone and some tangy hop too. Then it all becomes a bit sticky and short of grip. Cask (handpump), Three Horseshoes, Burton Bradstock.

Cask Conditioned at The Sea Trout, Staverton, Devon. Brown coloured beer with a bubbly head. Light flowery flavours for a stronger beer but with a certain pungency. Heavy finish with lots of conflicting character, a little roughish.
