3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask conditioned handpump Veritas Leeds 23/09/12. A golden beer with a white head and lacing. A very nice beer. Great hop malt balance and a really good body. Fruity hops and biscuity malts. A long finish. A very tasty well brewed likeable beer.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
From cask @ CASK Pub & Kitchen. This one is clear golden in color and it has a small and islandy just off-white head. Smells of old pungent hops and some quite clear manure actually. That’s a bit of a downer I guess. Seriously? Yeah, it really smells like manure, and I’m afraid the flavor also is infused with the stuff. A bit thin and flat on the mouthfeel. Hope it’s not supposed to taste or smell like this cause this was not pleasant. Needless to say, I did not like this one. 22.07.2012
