I had this at Global Brew. Pours copper with a off white head. Taste malt, Carmel. I thought this was good. I would drink this again.

On cask at the Edward Wiley in Glasgow. Pours a dark amber colour with a thin beige head. Hoppy aroma of pine, passion fruit and pineapple. Similar flavours with a nice caramel and barley backbone. US style ale. An oily mouth-feel with mild bitterness and a dry linger. Very nice.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask Conditioned Handpump Figure Of Eight Birmingham. A chestnut coloured beer with a good tight white head. The aroma has jammy fruits, hops and toast. Good hops with berry fruits in the mouth. A long finish with more toast. Pretty decent.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hand pulled cask at the Moon & Sixpence (JDW) Hatch End. Amber/red with a healthy beige head in the peak of condition. Dry with understated malts and late cascade hopping coming thorough after a while. A slight metallic twang lets this beer down. It grew on me after a few pints but I would say that it tastes considerably more English than the pump clip suggests. Hopefully the forthcoming Spoons American themed festival will throw up some more adventurous efforts.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Chestnut with full head. Smooth nutty, roasty malts leading to a slightly metallic, hoppy note. Earthy rather than American in character, more British I reckon. A pretty decent offering.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at the Old Manor (JDW), Bracknell. Golden amber with a loose off-white head; aroma of American hops; rather thinly bodied, tasting of caramel malts and fresh hops with some resin; then some gentle peppery hops leading to a malty finish. Rather underwhelming.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at JDW in Surbiton. Deep red with a small, frothy head that lasts nicely through the pint. Aroma isn’t the strongest but pleasant taste, a dry bitterness and earthy hops. Didn’t notice it was 5%. Quite low carbonation. Good beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask. The High Cross (JDW), Leicester. Medium white head with good lacing, clear copper body. Fruity, citric, grassy, red wine, peppery. Bittersweet. Bitter finish. Drinkable, which is surprising given its higher strength. And not so American, seems to share far more characteristics with English beers.
