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.

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.

UPDATED: JUN 12, 2006 Bottle SH Jones Bicester, Amber colour small white head, this was absolutely dreadful someone else says it thinks it is a Gueze, I thought it was trying to be sarsons, I could have chewed on the thumb nail sized pieces of yeast and sediment floating around in it I had to throw this away.

Golden color. Light fruity and slight malty body with a thin malty palate. Rather boring really.
