3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at the Harp. Amber-golden pour with a tight head that leaves thick curtains along the glass. The nose on this one is very Belgian. Some stewed apple aroma with a bit of cinnamon and a little whiff of sulphur. Light orange peel along with some herbal hops. A little bit of clove and some light apricot as well. It’s like a Belgian-English cross really. A bit of stewed fruit and a lingering bitter finish.

Cask (GBBF2011, Thursday)
Very pungent hop aroma. Simple bitter, but the finish has a great hoppy tingle, and plenty of light grains too. Full of character for 3.8%, nicely done.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
August 12, 2011 - cask at The Draft House (Tower Bridge). Amber with an average frothy off-white head. Leafy, papery dry aroma - taste follows, no paper, grainy but not particularly sweet, a simple straightforward clean bitter (odd how few of these are around these days in the good pubs!!) - no alcohol, a bit of wheaty character ... chewy, light, mild carbonation, quick dry finish, no aftertaste - nothing wrong with this one, nothing special either.
