3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hand pulled at the Anchor. Very good beer, full of berry flavours. The best part is the finish, which is alive with forest fruits, especially raspberry, which lingers nicely. Burnt umber colouring, with a speckled lace wallpaper. Warm, refreshing and fully fruity.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask Conditioned at The Crawley Inn, Crawley, Oxon. A pale orange amber beer, as clear as a bell. A floral hoppy brew with a thin short head, plenty of heady, lemony and orange hop flavours, little malt backing. A word about the pub, this is a hippy, travellers comune within oxfordshire, very strange, not what you would expect in an English pub, but it has its place and the beer is always good.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Cask) Orange amber, reddish shine; slim white head, gone in seconds. Very flowery-bitter. Best English hops - yet unmistakably caramel malts. Nice hop flavours, just right balance, with citrussy-fruity aroma. The palate, however, is surprisingly lacking: harsh tones and quite empty. A good best bitter, shame about the palate.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very good hoppy aroma (Goldings?), amber in colour with good condition and reasonable head. More hoppiness in the mouth with a good balance of sweey malt. Hoppiness dominates the finish but not too bitter.
