3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
I’ve had it in bottle before but it hasn’t been as good as this cask at the Pen and Wig. There’s a nice floral and malty aroma to the beer, smells like a fresh pint of bitter, nothing particularly special but very fresh and pleasant. The taste is light, with a maltiness and crystal malt sweetness that grows up slowly and then hits dry. In the meantime, all these floral hops dance in your mouth, with some subtle fruit present. Very much recommended as a session beer.

Cask at The Fountain, Leek. A clear pale amber colour with a medium white head. Aroma of caramel, fruity malt, lemon, orange and floral hops. Taste of biscuit, fruity malt, grain, lemon, orange and floral hops. Light bodied and a smooth texture. A dry, biscuity, citrus hop bitterness in the finish. A standard Cornish ale, nicely balanced with good bitterness.

Draught at The blue Peter, polperro, Cornwall. Pale, decent foamy head, light hippy nose, layered flavours with malt and fruity hops, nuanced and delicate. Smooth mouthfeel, blamed finish. This is what real ale is all about.
