2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask @ Roebuck, London. Golden color, short head. Bitter. I have something written down on a note, but cant decipher it. At least it ends with: ’... in a british way’. Well, that is what I can say about almost all the brews I tasted in London this weekend :-)

Cask at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. A hazy golden beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet with notes of straw on a light malty background. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of citrus fruits especially oranges. The body is no wonder thin.

Bottle. Clear with a presence of hops. Citrus flavours are there as well which result in a clean sharp ale. Nice.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cinq cent millilitres (short-changed Pint) bottle from Tesco. Pale appearance, looks like a lager but don’t let that put you off! Smells like a real ale and has a caramel and slightly fruity initial taste. Lingering taste is mingled bitter, hoppy and fruity. Very pleasant real ale, probably best on a warm summer day (we do get them occasionally here in England). Enjoy.
