Cask at the Crosse Keys, JDW. Clearish, rich gold pour with aum, off-white head. Woody malt aroma, some herbal tea. Lightly sweet flavor, dankness like weed, some mild citrus rot. Light to medium in body with fine carbonation. Earthy, dank finish, light malts, some grass. Weird but alright.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tasted this in the Salt Cot, Saltcoats in April 2011. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear amber in colour with a thin white head. Warm yeasty dough note in the brief aroma. Poor lacing and thin mouthfeel. Pale malt gives a peppery digestive biscuit note with tart redcurrant fruit. Metallic tang present in the bitter resiny aftertaste. Finish is hoppy with dusty floral notes giving an added astringency to the finish. A poor session bitter.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The Baron, 01/04/11. Murky orange amber, low dense collar, fine-dappled lace. Not much of a looker. Odd perfumed aroma like guava or papaya. Perfumed orange and tropical fruit taste finishing with bread, vanilla and lingering hop. Some plastic lunchbox and odd Belgian yeastiness/spice- coriander, presumably. Better than expected.

A weak looking ale, but its bitter weak taste is not as bad as its appearance.
