From a bottle doughy aroma from a cloudy orange brown pour. An almost clove like taste maybe. It is a surprising taste but refreshing nonetheless.

Cask. Pours amber with a white lace top. A modest balanced hop and biscuit malt scent (you would guess it was beer blindfolded). The taste is similarly solid rather than spectacular with enough fruit to the fore to dominate the overall taste. A decent session bitter that has its place although the prospectors have moved on.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at The Mulberry Leaves, Leek (Marstons) A clear pale amber colour with a medium white head. Aroma of caramel, toasted malts, some toffee, slight red berries, a little yeast and subtle spicy hops. Taste is similar of caramel, toffee, some toasted malts, slight red berries, a little yeast and subtle spicy hops. Medium bodied and soft carbonation. A dry, slightly fruity, malty bitterness in the finish. A decent bitter, got all the flavours that you would expect from a quintessential English pint. Good.

Cask @ Southampton airport. Slightly unclear golden body with a light off-white head. Mild malty aroma. Flavor is mild, smooth malt, mild fruit, some toast and medium bitterness. Medium body and pleasant aftertaste of smooth malt and fruit. This beer really suits the cask format, a splendid uncomplicated, smooth British best bitter. Good choise for an airport bar.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at The Railway, Putney. 4.9%. Hazy orange, still, decent foamy white head doesn’t endure, light lacing. Aroma is light and biscuity. Body is medium, smooth, very light carbonation. Taste is tea, flowers, biscuit malts, resin, toffee, tangy bitterness. Flavour offers something new with each sip. Great condition. Something to keep you interested over the course of a few pints.

FTA: seasonal bitter. I just can’t pass on an opportunity to enjoy it again and again. One of the first bitters I ever tried (~10 y.ago). First hand pumped ale ever for my. Goes straight to your head. I really miss it.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
I was very disappointed with this beer. I found it more expensive than some other beers. It is drinkable though leaves an after taste that I would consider to be the same as that of cider which I have a fair amount of distaste for. Its slighlt nutty and can be considered to have a fairly nice palette. Overall I wasn’t impressed. Its probably the least desirable ale that I have tried to date.
