2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A Mes rate. Cask handpull from Bar Fringe.
Pale gold with a good white head. Full of tart, synthetic raspberry. Nasty and artificial. What is it about the UK and fruit beers?

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at CPK, London. It pours pale yellow with a small white head. Aroma is huge on the raspberry notes. Some funk, not much else. Taste is bitter with resiny hoppy notes and some light fruitiness. Mouthfeel is medium and good carbonation. Nice beer but it doesn’t really come throuh as one piece.

4th Aug 2016: cask in The Pheasant, Wellington Shropshire. golden pour with a slight pink hue, white topping. Raspberries in both the nose and taste, not overpowering, but dominant and noticeable straight away. Not much else going on really, but a pleasant enough summer drink.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at the Bootlegger, High Wycombe. A pale amber pour with a ring of white head; slightly artificial raspberry aroma; sweet raspberry cordial taste to start, then a refreshingly fruity bitterness; leaving a clean crisp finish. A pleasant refreshing summer ale, but the authenticity of the raspberries is a bit dodgy.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask in the market porter. Alround rating: Pale thin malt character, loads of raspberry but its not real raspberry as theres no colour and it taste fairly artifical, grassy and noteably bitter which doesnt suit a fruit beer. Drinkable all the same.
