Cask. The Old White Swan (Nicholson’s), York. Medium white head. Amber body. Looks like what it is; another boring brown bitter. Light malt, light hop. Not much. Fruity. Bittersweet. Dry finish. A by the numbers bland, bog standard bitter. Why bother?

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours golden with a nicely proportioned creamy head. The nose has apples but not the bad apple note! The taste is more apples plus a zing of lime! The palate is light but balanced throughout and there’s a clean finish. Overall, a good beer!

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cask handpull at Old Buttetmarket Canterbury. Clear light brown old gold colour with lasting near white head. A beer created by Elbow at Robinsons. Interesting mix. Appley Robinsons house character. Ok condition. Bit of puke. Not much else. Some vague malt. No noticeable hop. Elbow at their dirgiest I would say. Its terrible.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On cask at The Haymarket. Pours a golden colour with a decent white head. Aroma of biscuity malt, yeast and caramel. Similar flavours with moderate carbonation and a creamy mouth-feel. Quite dry to finish. Not bad. Lingering Weetabix and mildly bitter. Very drinkable with just the faintest hint of apple seed to finish.
