3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at the Cove, Covent Garden, London. Light amber color with a white head. Mild floral aroma. Medium body with mild carbonation. Rather grassy/herby/floral/spicey hops over mild caramel. Temperature was just right to bring out lots of flavors; what real ale is all about. Finish is clean; really good.

cask at Market Porter, London. Pours a golden amber color with thin white head. As with most ales I’ve had over here, they aren’t very hoppy, although this one did have a slight bitterness to it. A bit if malty taste as well. This had a mouthfeel that was very smooth and slightly thin, yet drinkable.

A Mes rate: Cask at Baker Street ’Sporks
Very slightly hazy golden blonde with a thin white film. Nice straight down the line hoppy stuff with lots of grapefruit and peach and a faint biscuity note. Dusty and unexpected malty finish. Pretty decent but not quite great.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Csk. With a pump clip like this, you’d expect a beer with balls, but no. A very soft ale, rather thin, a little bitterness in the finish. The English golden ales will never be my favourites.

The London Inn (’Spoons), Torquay. Rotten egg snout. Bursting with citrussy hop goodness and crackerbread malt. Almost Church. Lovely beer.
