3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home split with Sarah pciked up at the Brewery shop in Chesham. Clear deep orange coloured pour with a big off white head. Aroma is some smoke phenol, piney hops, light cirtus and some tobacco. Flavour is sweetish biscuity malts, decent wet grassy, piney hops. Firm smooth grassy bitterness. Palate is highish carbonation medium sweet. Again that hint of smokey phenol lingers in the back end. Decent English IPA.

Cask. Malty. Bit of citrus, real ale yeastiness, slightly nutty. Alright. First sip was interesting but then it hurt my teeth. No idea why.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask (Isis, Sunderland) - Amer in colour. Marmalade, pine and peach in the aroma. Grapefruit, apricot and sultanas in the taste. Nice, but not as hoppy as I was expecting (not necessarily) it would be.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from the Red Squirrel Brewery Shop and Tap Room. Clear light brown and orange with a medium off white head. Nose is citrousy hop, light pine, nutty malt, light caramel. Taste is tangy pine and green hop bitter, with some light caramel and light nuttiness. Lacks a bit of malt backbone to carry the hop for me, but decent.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask @ Alehouse. Slightly hazy deep orange, tight head. Aroma is sweets from my childhood, strawberry maybe. Immediate bitterness, recedes to a sweetness that becomes toffee bananas. Lingering bitterness. I like this one!

2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask @ Harp. Amber clear with small white bubbly head which didn't stick around for long. No carbonation. Not much aroma, some malty sweetness maybe a little hops, nothing much. Sweet malty flavour giving way to bitterness. Ok but I'd expected more.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask @ some random pub in Stockwell. Deep red with a small white head. The nose is floral hops, strong herbs and citrus fruits. The taste is big chewy cherry malted body supporting a strong dash of floral hops. Quite herbal. The body’s medium. This beer feels a bit disjointed and strange, missing a harmony of flavor that elevates the best beer. Still, pretty flavorful...
