Cask@The Criterion, Leicester. Golden beer with a strong head. The aroma is lightly hopped, and the flavour is bitter and roasted with plenty of hops. Overall a nice very bitter English pale ale type beer.

Cask-conditioned at the Three Tuns, Bristol 29/02/2012. Golden coloured with a slight white head. Sweet aroma of caramel, peaches and pine. Flavour was also sweet, with a buttery edge, some orange fruit and a lengthy bitter finish. Didn’t work for me.

Cask conditioned at Far From the Madding Crowd, Oxford. Gold with white head. Sharp, light beer with an acidic, spruce like flavour, quite perfumed and a little odd. The astringency from the hop tends to dominate.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cask, gravity, at St Neots Beer Festival ’11. Gold with a small white head. Faint sweet malt aroma with some overlying sulphur. Rather a rough brown papery taste and a sharp bitter finish. Not much subtlety here, and not the best to be honest

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask handpull at The Flower Pot, Maidstone. Clear very pale gold, very thin white head. Ascetic hop aroma with a bit of farty yeast and bit of minerality. Decent condition in mouth, but that sulphur fart bad egg thing does run through it. Some decent citrus biting hop bitterness on finish. Yes, the sulphur is a bit distracting. But the finish is really lasting and biting and very good.

Cask gravity, Beer on The Wye 6, Hereford. Straw with a fine white collar. Faint lemon barley aroma. Slightly vegetative and wholemeal presence merging into corn and almond; some light sprucey hop. Very lingering, corn-like vanilla tones. Not convinced.
