3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
cask conditioned at the 3Bís, Reading. Bright amber in colour with a minimal white head; perhaps my mind is playing tricks based on the name of this ale, but there is a definite sfresh salty tang to the aroma; taste is bitter to start but then becomes more subtle with light floral hops and an underlying malty sweetness; palate is once again try and salty and reminds me of the sea.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask Orange beer with a dull ochre shinge; B.C."H.". First UK hops nose, flowery, nettles, but all terribly subdued. Very fine hoppy & herbal flavour but with a total lack of maltbacking. Faint bitterness overall. Extremely light MF, watery texture. OK, this is British Cask ale, and it is suitably subtle. So, Iím not expecting an exploding MF from a USA hop bomb. But it is called IPA, yes. Please, look this up in the brewing dictionary...

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Half pint pulled at the Charles Dickens in Southwark (London), clear copper with no head. A strong sweet fruit (mandarins) hop aroma. Sweet fruit flavours again. A little watery and could do with some more bittering.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I dont think this was in top condition. Aroma is grassy hops with caramel malts but alround a bit boring. Taste is similar a bit of sulphur irritates it a bit. Had potentional and still does so iíll need to try it again.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
1/2 pint cask, Bow Bar, Edinburgh. Light golden colour with a creamy off-white head. Sourish sweet honey aroma. Caramelly flavours with a nice crisp hop bitterness. Very refreshing, and just what I need after a long walk and a long day at work. Smooth texture, and perhaps even a bit watery. Some drying sensations in the finish, but there is a nice malty oilyness in the finish as well.
