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.

Pint, JDW Moon on the Square, Basildon, Essex.Pretty amber colored ale with an oatmeal coloured ephemeral head. Smooth, smooth, smooth with a nicely rounded mouth and a flowery middle. Only just bitter enough for me and the finish needed the astringency of a few more hops.

Hand pulled at the Briar Rose, Birmingham. Copper-toned golden. Perfectly pleasant beer, with a gentle blend of straw hops and a little bit of unintrusive sweetness. (Needs a few more hops though.)

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.
