Cask@theimperial, walsall(jdw). Sweet hoppy aroma, amber colour, little white head that laces the glass. Soft on the palate a little sticky. Treacle hint and bitter. Ok pint but could only drink one.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Brown 500ml bottle, best before the end of Aug 2012: poured into a UK sleeve pint glass on 19th June 2012.
Good looking amber body: deep head of off-white bubbles on top.
The nose was yeasty, earthy and woody, with a semi-sweet malty ester as well.
The taste almost mirrors the aromas but with a mildly bitter hop finish and a maltier start to each sip.
Carries the 4.3% ABV nicely and overall not a bad beer at all.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled 05/05/12. An amber coloured beer which pours with no head. Sweet toffee and leafy hops in the nose. Similar in the mouth. Some orangey hop notes too. A standard English bitter which is OK at what it does.

Hand pulled at the Windsor Castle, Lye. Mid-gold, with not a lot on top. Fuzzy chocolate malt. Smooth tangy UK hop flavour. Some oil, some nut, some sweetness and sourness. Trad bitter. Hard and reasonable.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: FEB 29, 2012 Bottle from Nisa (formerly Pedmore Wines), Grange Road, Stourbridge. Having recently consumed (and raved about) Sadlersí Stumbling Badger, my hopes were high for its paler relative. Unfortunately this is a more mediocre affair. It pours a pale yellow with no head worth mentioning. A much lighter aroma without individual personality. The taste is dry, citric and strongly hoppy. Itís also quite heavily carbonated compared with its label mate. While I did grow to like it more as it went on, one was enough.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Golden colour, small off-white head. Aroma is caramel, fruits, earth and some herbs. Flavour is floral, hoppy, mild maltyness along with some slight herbal notes. Has the elements, but is actually quite boring.
