3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
18th February 2015
Chelmsford Winter Beer Festival in KEGS. Cask. Almost clear deep brown beer, small cream colour head. Smooth malts, trace of cream. Mild dark toffee and a little dark chocolate. Mild hop spice in the mid. Finishes semi dry with spicy bitterness kicking in. Long bitter linger. Flavoursome and fairly well joined up.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Gravity cask at Elysian Winter Beer Festival 2015. Dark brown, translucent. Nice head from natural carbonation. Light aroma, bit of crystal malt and toast. While the hop may be absent in the aroma, it is abundant in the taste: bittersweet citrus with a bit of coffee and grass. Very bitterly hopped finish and aftertaste. Grows on me.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask gravity, The Crown Summer BF, Nuneaton, 01/06/12. Agricultural hints on aroma mingling with dishcloth, lime, washing left to mildew in the machine. I like it. Good limey, lightly roasted taste with some shrubby hop, grass and honey. BIPA without the punch of citrus. That dried curry leaf note again. Tasty.
