Cask @ Turl’s Green, Bradford. Deeper golden coloured with a glow and a small head. It’s lightly malty but crisp and more than palatable, certainly if you are looking for a session ale. Medium bitterness.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
aROMA IS SWEET, HONEY AND NUTS PLAY A PART, A SERIOUSLY STRANGE MIX OF MALTS. tASTE IS SINTRESTING SIMILAR TO THE AROMA HOWEVER HAS THIS WHISKEY BARREL AGEDNESS TO IT WHICH REMINDS ME OF INNIS AND GUNN. woops on the caps.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: OCT 26, 2009 A Mes rate: Cask at Baker St. JDW. Darkish amber looks. Quite sweet with a hoppy finish. Boring, watery and thin.
***RERATE*** Great, a rebadge. I’d have never got this if I’d have known. It was crap at Spoons, this 2nd time at the Market Porter it was even worse. As a result of the rebadging, I’m going with the lower score. Malt upfront, very earthy, fatty, oily and sticky. Too much straw, too sweet. Rough as old boots.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: OCT 15, 2010 Cask at The Wellington Arms, Bedford. Dark amber with a small beige head. Some hops in aroma and taste, but overall it’s disappointingly watery. 15.10.10 Same location. Yes, I got the fruity aroma, and a bit of old sack and muesli bar in the taste. Having said that, the ’ruby red’ of the commercial description is now much more like a coppery gold. And I don’t like the new Springhead pumpclips. Rating: 6,3,5,3,12:2.9
