1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Cask (handpump) at The Cove, Covent Garden. Oh dear, what have we here. An unsolicited slice of lemon, which doesn’t bode well. Piss yellow colour. Ice cold, but an unappealing dirty, vomit edge manages to come through. Flat, thin and lifeless. No flavour to speak of. If the idea is to make a tasteless beer to lure the lager drinkers this is a blinding success. On any other level, it fails. I might have to bring myself to try another to see if its always this unimpressive.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Cask handpull at The Cove, Covent Garden with Yogi Beera, Pivo, Chris_O and Kook. Ooh this was poor. Not sure what it should be and not sure Skinners, who are normally pretty good, should have made it. Golden with disappearing head and the barmaid had not improved it by adding a slice of lime to the glass. Bizarre, odd and I can’t really say anything else.
