3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at the Euston tap. Light amber colour with a cascading creamy off white head. Aroma is light caramel nutty malts with a little touch of pine resin. Palate is wonderfully smooth and perfect cask condition. Flavour is medium caramel, base malts with grassy piney hop. Wonderfully balanced and very very drinkable. Little lingering spicy hop and light caramel malts.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Nose is butterscotch, red berry, slight biscuit. No head looks grim. Taste is butterscotch leading to berries then a very slight hop lift in the short too dry finish. Mouthfeel is too thin.
It;s a reasonable bitter.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On cask at the Grosvenor.
Appearance - amber with a nice head.
Nose - herbs pine and a touch but just a touch of toffee.
Taste - creamy orange with again just a touch of biscuit. Almost like an orange cheesecake.
Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry finish.
Overall - an enjoyable bitter even if I’d have enjoyed more biscuits.
