3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Cask at Castle, Chancery Lane, London, 18 July 2011) Golden colour with frothy, off-white head. Malty, fruity nose with notes of biscuits and peaches. Slightly toasty with a hint of diacetyl. Malty, fruity taste with apricots, citrus and biscuit, slightly toasty malt. Generous citrussy bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a touch of sweetness. Not really sure about the form of this one. Decent and drinkable however.

Cask at the Live and Let Live, Cambridge. A rather plain and non-descript bitter; hits all the right notes, but instantly forgetable. Gold with a rapidly fading white head; nice malty body; some light bitterness to finish. Next.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at the Brunswick, Derby. My final Derby beer, and I was soaking wet from the rain and in danger of missing my train, which was the last direct one home. As I recall this beer was golden with a small white head, had a malty aroma, and tasted sweet with some citric sourness and a little bitterness. Though I could be wrong. But I caught the train.

Cask (Gallows Bird, Helsinki)
Rich orange colour, light frothy head. Odd aroma, smells of raw ingredients, a bit messy. Tastes very bitter, and quite malty, but tainted with salty blue cheese and mushrooms.

3 Judges. Aroma is biscuity malt, hints of fruit and spice, but it dies down to grassy hop. Taste is a solid biscuity base with grassy an floiuyral hop flowing through. A decent bitter, but nothign to special.

Cask conditioned at Catford Beer Festival. Golden beer. A bit of malt and a bit of malts makes this a drinkable but otherwise unremarkable bitter. Uninteresting but there’s something about it that I love. A good bitter.
