2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A Sim rate (Cask at Planet Thanet): Crazy lemon & water and unusually sour. Really not much to it. Appearance is ridiculously watery, it may as well just be water and lemon. No head or lace, looks like ice tea.

The Merchant, Rugby. Heady slightly dank pear and apple fruit aroma. Straw half with lagery looks, dabs of lace, minimal carbonation. Floury biscuit finish, faint pine. So-so.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask. Crystal clear pale yellow ale with a light white ring. Peaky, fun hop nose with bright leafy flavours, some orange tea nuances and lots of bready, grainy intricacies. Rather fresh tasting, interesting blend of ingredients, finishing creamy and with a firm medium body that remains shy on carbonation. Not Beijing Black, but pretty good.

Bottle at the Twickenham tasting. This beer should be called Crazy Dave. Aroma is nice and citrusy, balanced biscuity hoppy goodness. Taste has some yeastyness, but not enough to deter from the fact its a good drinkable ale.

Bottle. Golden beer with a strong frothy head. The aroma is lightly hopped, and the flavour is malty, smooth and hopped. Overall a very nice drinkable beer.

(Cask at Southampton Arms) Even this is quite mild beer there was alcohol notes in the aroma. in addition to malts and bitterness there were light citric notes in the taste. Perhaps this was a bit too unbalanced for this kind of beer.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask gravity at Bedford BF ’09. Getting close to the bottom of the barrel. Dark gold with a small white head. Very faint malt aroma. Sweet maltiness in the taste. Some bitterness. All a bit vague. Needs to sit for a few minutes. Yes, a satisfying orange marmalade tang develops.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask @ The Pembury Tavern. The pour’s deep chestnut color with a small off-white head. The aroma’s rich malts. Some wood, cherry jam, caramel, light spruce and general spices. The taste is more rich berries. Caramel-dipped wood. Spiced chocolate. Smooth body. Overall, not bad! My rating doesn’t seem to reflect the general description of the beer. Maybe the Pembury mislabeled this...flagged for rerate.
