2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: OCT 27, 2010 Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Golden with a small white head. Sweet honey aroma is promising, but not a lot else is going on here except for a medium hoppy taste. No sign of the fruits for me. 27.10.10 Cask at ’Spoons Milton Keynes, during, though not officially a part of the ’Spoons Beer Festival ’10. Very similar sentiments this time: undemanding and dull is what I wrote. Rating: 6,3,5,3,10:2.7

Cask (handpump) at the Devonshire Cat, Sheffield. Saved from mediocrity by a faint fruitiness before the sudden finish. Otherwise, a rather chewy little bitter.

Really hard to explain, very bitter but a little like dry, not really good, but not bad at all. I like the aroma, the foam too.
