2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Cask. Some stewed fruit and yeast in the scent. Pours honey brown with thin top. It seems to be here to make the other beers taste good since it’s the blandest thing on the menu. This is the downside of trying new ale. You can have a run of indifferent pints. The aftertaste is tolerable but it really should be preceded by a taste..

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Half-pint, guest cask ale at The Greyhound. Shared with Finn. Patchy off-white head leaving spotty lacing on the glass. Clear golden body. Grainy nose with hints of dried fruits. Bread and plums to the taste buds. Malt-fruity bitter endnotes. Average stuff (Derby 16.02.2016).

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
9th April 2015: gravity pour at the Isle of Man CAMRA beer festival. Pale golden brew with a white topping. I thought this a bit bland, a blend of hops and malts without a doubt, but nothing interesting or strong, easily forgotten. Some fruity notes in the flavour along with a mild sweetness.

Cask@lychgatetavern, wolverhampton. Reddish amber colour, residual head. Aroma a little of malts. Taste is of dry fruits, a little toffee and dry hops. Thin on the palate. An ok beer, different. Not air if it is a bitter though.

On cask Priory in loughborough - bit of a reddy misty pint with no head. A fruity nose, a bit of malt in there, but rather dull in both taste and mouthfeel.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Knickersby ’Spoons. Ruddy amber pint with a creamy head of suds. Fruitily hoppy aroma. Delicate strawberryish hops, pear, honey, vanilla, and breadily malty afters. Ridiculously creamy mouthfeel. Shades of top condition Bombadier. Wasn’t expecting to, but savoured every sip of this.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask conditioned - handpump - Criterion Leicester. An orange coloured beer with a wisp of off-white bubbles. The aroma is a bit bready with a touch of toffee. The taste is bready, oaty and malty. An odd palate that actually gets better but it’s bizarre.

1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Amber. Aroma is pure sulphur. One of the blandest, most tasteless cask ales I’ve tasted. A vague malty tang quickly subsides into a watery nothingness with low bitterness. Don’t bother.
