Cask at the Railway, Putney, "Mopping up the Spoons fest", 15th Nov 08. Golden amber with a firm white head. Malty nose, smooth palate and a decent enough hop finish but overall rather bland and manufactured. Needs more rough edges!

<i>A Mes rate: cask at Baker Street ’Sporks.</i>
Clean golden brown with no head what so ever. Nutty and bready malt with some faint sweet fruity notes. Nothing special by any means. One dimensional and boring.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at ’Spoons, Milton Keynes in Wetherspoons BF ’08. Coppery gold with a small white head. Complex aroma can be summed up as earthy malt with rubber sole, throat lozenge and dusty bus upholstery. Taste by comparison is straightforward: sweet, oily honey malt with some bitterness. Quite good.
