3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask Conditioned, at the Wenlock Arms, London.
Amber genius. This beer settled slowly in my glass like it had a point to prove. Making me wait, this beer had cheek and front. After this initial stand off everything went well. This beer was simplistic genius. Bitter from the first taste to the last. Clear golden colour the resonated the perfection of balanced flavour. At 3.6% this beer was so good I thought I was steeling from the future. Somewhere, somehow another beer was being stolen from to give this beer its flavour.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled cask conditioned at George Hotel, Eccleshall, Staffordshire.
Deep golden. Aromatic, really hoppy nose. Dry and nicely malty with resiny hop flavour. Orangey very bitter finish. Outstandingly flavourful for being 3.6%!
