3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
21st April: opening of the refurbished ‘Elephant and Castle’ in Dawley, Shropshire. Hand pulled pint of a golden misty body, on top a thin crown of white bubbles sat throughout the tasting.
The smell was of citrusy hops with floral overtones, only a suggestion of malts in the nose.
The taste was a pleasant blend of those aforementioned hop flavours and a malt caramel feel.
Body depth fine for the alcohol content: an OK beer but no world beater.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
First tasted this in the Last Post, Paisley (JDW) in January 2008. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear orange amber in colour with a thick white head. Strong marmalade notes in the short but intense aroma. Good creamy mouthfeel and decent lacing. Pale malt complexes leads to a biscuit flavour with citric fruit notes of orange peel and pink grapefruit. Dry dusty hop resins give a floral bitter aftertaste. Finish is slightly malty with pithy citrus fruit evident in the mouth. An ok session bitter but nothing exceptional.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask@GBBF2011. Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is fruity, wooden, mild floral and resiny notes. Flavour is caramel malts, some wood, mild burnt wood, some earth and herbs as well. Pleasantly bitter finish, but gets a bit ruined by a rather metallicness in the aftertaste.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Cask at Cloisters. Pours a cloudy golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma of wet hay, caramel and musty honey. Similar flavours of caramel, hay, honey and wet cardboard this time. Nicely dry with a long dry linger, however, this doesn’t redeem this beer.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Gold colour. Vague aroma, maybe some caramel taste. A little bit of burnt electrical phenols, but also a lot of fruitiness and some minerals late. Plenty of character, but at no point coalescing into anything I actually want.

Cask @ Foot of the Walk, Leith. Warm honey-gold with stable head. Aroma is yeasty with mushroom, and some sulfuric vegetation. Soft, oily palate. FLavors are better, with roasted mushroom and nice hop bitterness.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fine malt nose and some fruit, auburn, small toffee head, loads of lace. Flavour is a full on malt, red plums some woody notes. Light bodied, well balanced, fine bitterness, too easy to drink. Terrific session!
