17th February 2012
On tap somewhere! Clear amber beer. Light dry palate. Creamy malt base and a light spicy feel about it, I guess from the rye. Marmalade hops, just a slight bitter edge. Finishes dry. Not bad.

Cask handpull at The Market Porter. I got the last half out of the barrel, so a bit hard to say. Hazy old gold, lasting thick cream. Quite heavy on the rye, good woody taste. No condition. OK, should be quite interesting when in good nick.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask conditioned at Far from the Madding Crowd, Oxford. Amber to brown with white head. Darkly roasted grainy taste, a little like burnt cocoa husk with a dry bitterness and a late flowery hop note. Reasonable and a little unusual.

500ml bottle - shared by Mark&Sarah - thanks!
Spicy menthol and mashy aroma - vapo-rub. Softer taste - bready. However, some saccharine in the finish is drying in places. Fullish palate, but a tiny touch of elastoplast.

Cask conditioned - handpump - Malt Shovel Northampton A copper bronze coloured beer with a thin white head. Some toasty wheaty notes in the nose which follows through to the otherwise clean and drinkable mouth. No discernible rye notes if indeed there’s rye in there.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask (gravity dispense) at Ealing Beer Festival, July 2009. Amber colour. Loose white head. Moderate condition. Distinctly grainy (not in a bad way) aroma but I wouldn’t necessarily have picked out rye. Very dry mouthfeel. More malty character. Hops only make a late appearance but produce a strong bitterness in the aftertaste. Decent drinkable stuff - tasty for a 3.8% session bitter.
