2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask at The Market Tavern, Durham.
Six Nations special beer revived for the Rugby World Cup. Honey coloured beer with a smooth, white head. Crisp malted cereal in a slightly bitter aroma. Crisp sweet grain in flavour with more malt than hop. Not much more to it - a pretty dull golden ale but reasonably punchy and drinkable.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask at the Six Bells, Cambridge. Dark gold, with a bit of loose white head. Scent of toffee, whiskey, hazelnut. Taste doesn’t live up to the aroma: bitter and sour without much variation to the long finish. Bittersweet aftertaste. Quite average really, which is par for the course for sporting event themed beers...

Cask conditioned handpump The Pub Leicester (The bitterly cold in Leicester crawl). A golden beer with a loose white head. Served very cold. A pretty non-descript sweetish bitter which is verging on cloying. Lacks hops. Not so good.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask conditioned at The Easington, Banbury. Gold with white head. Light malty golden ale, quite fruity with a touch of apricot, late greenish hop gives a slight contrast. However it feels slightly bland through the pint.
