3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at Hogshead, Wolverhampton. As íSlaterís Top Tottyí. Interesting to catch up with this one, which has received some negative press for sexism in the past. Dark yellow, still, clear, big foamy white head. Aroma is musty, carpet, bready malt. Body is medium, smooth, soft carbonation. Taste is bready, light citrus. Bread-forward, watery and a bit basic. As expected, really.

The beer that was thrown out of Parliament. Cask. Clear yellow color, fluffy white head. Aroma of peppery straw. Taste is peppery lemon. Could also be thrown out for being boring.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Not sure what message the name (or the pumpclip) sends out to our impressionable youth... but Iím rating the beer. Cask at the Admiral Benbow, Shrewsbury. Light to mid-gold with a suave creamy white head. Nothing in the aroma to suggest any individuality in the beer, but certainly inoffensive, pleasant even. Much improved taste: clean, sweetish, citrusy and balanced. Lemon drop in the finish. As bored as I am of these golden beers, many of them are quite nice and some are very good. This is quite nice.

Cask at The Green Dragon, Leek (JDW) A clear straw colour with a frothy white head. Aroma of pale malts, perfume plus soapy citrus and grassy hops. Taste of pale malts, some lemon, dry cardboard and grassy hops. Light bodied and a watery texture. A soft dry bitterness in the finish. Quite disappointed with this one, too weak and bland.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle shared with McTapps. Very unpleasant one with some strange combination of aromas including some bread, earth and leaves. Unexpected sourish ending and very watery background. Waste of time and money.
