3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at the Magpie & Crown, Brentford, 4th Jan 2010 with tashi. Classic bitter colour with a little bit of white head. Quite light palate. Strange flavour - there’s a bit of smoke, an odd "stone" mineral taste, nuttiness and a decent finish. Odd is probably the best way to describe it, but I like it.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
[Cask at The Retreat, Reading] Amber, small white head. Grassy aroma. Smooth, soft mouthfeel. Soft malts and sweetish honey. There’s little bitterness here, but it’s still surprisingly refreshing and moreish, possibly due to a slight dryness in the finish. A decent session beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask, Turf Tavern, Oxford. Amber with a smallish white head. Brown bread, cinnamon and sulfur aroma. Tingley mineral flavor with a definite smoke. Blends nicely with the lightly toasty malt. I’d be surprised if the smoke is intentional, but I kinda dig it.
