2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A very enjoyable straightforward honest bitter. Medium bodied. Medium carbonation. High on hops and a bitter ending that quickly gives way to citrus sweetness which lasts in the mouth.

Cask. Solid ruby brown colour, with lasting white head. Fruity nose, with nice hop/malt mix. Pronounced hop hit to go along with the typical smooth finish of a bitter. Plenty of earthy character as well. Great stuff.

Rich head, dark red/brown color. Smooth, good body, moderate metallic bitterness, buttery caramel, earthy, a little wood chip. Aroma: a little metal, a little body odor. A spanking beer. (cask at the Rose and Crown, Oxford, June 2012)

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. A hazy brown coloured beer (with the yeast poured in) with an off-white coloured head. A yeasty aroma with a candy sugar note to it. Quite bitter at first but then transgresses to a semi-sweet yeasty beer. Pretty decent.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Wow: nose-smacking hop aroma humming with overripe satsuma, lychee, exotic pollen. A real sniffer. Pours mellow, coppery bronze with a fat, unmoving cream foam and slight veil of haze. Full-bodied and complex with pithy, tropical-hinting hops (pineapple, lychee, orange, grapefruit), robust husky malts and a good dry, lingering bitterness. Green, earthy, flowery burps like a mouthful of Geraniums. Really pleasant, tangily hopped, slightly humming bottle conditioned English. When I was expecting something drab and brown.

[500ml bottle (from Millets Farm Shop, nr Abingdon) that Dad shared with me - cheers!] Murky auburn with a small off-white head. Odd kiwi and urine flavour (kiwiwee?!) mixed in with nice fresh hops and lots of malt. On the sweet side, could do with a bit more crispness. Not up to the Prospect from the same brewery.
